    Guantanamo captives may be chained to the floor, but they're "well fed"

    According to Dick Cheney, US captives at the Gunatanamo torture chamber are "well treated, well fed, and living in the tropics". Well, they're certainly not well treated, as another article I posted today shows, so, US captives are apparently "well fed" and "living in the tropics", i'm sure those so called "terror suspects" appreciate that when they're being beaten, and forced to urinate on themselves:

    Cheney on Thursday described prison conditions in more glowing terms, saying the United States spent heavily to build a new facility there. "They're very well treated down there. They're living in the tropics. They're well fed. They've got everything they could possibly want," Cheney said in a CNN interview. "There isn't any other nation in the world that would treat people who were determined to kill Americans the way we're treating these people."
    If you believe Cheney, then I have various electrical items which I could sell you, they've been left out in the rain all night, but I promise you they still work. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    Many anti-war Democrats have seen the camp, most recently last week. They report it's OK, note that they have been there, unlike the myriad of rumour mongers you incessantly quote.

    American politicians claim that an American run camp is ok? Whoda thunk it? Here's where they haven't been: they haven't been where not even the Red Cross is allow to go (no need to type where that is since you know so much about the situation, you must know where I'm speaking of).

    The whole prison itself is illegal under the Lease of Coaling or Naval Stations Agreement Between the United States and Cuba of 1903 and the Platt Amendment of 1903. The holding of "detainees" without a hearing to determine their status is illegal under the Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War. Finally, many of the regular practices the U.S. has admitted to carrying out in Guantanamo are illegal under Article 1 of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhumanor Degrading Treatment or Punishment, the Geneva Conventions and/or the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
