Role Reversal

When three prisoners of Guantanamo killed themselves last month, the commanding officer there accused the men of committing asymmetrical warfare on America by taking their own lives. He said the suiciders had no respect for human life.

The notion that these men coordinated their suicides is now referred to as a "plot". Basic rights, like attorney-client privilege, must now be suspended, as sealed envelopes are clearly the tool of terrorists.

And so the Army captors become the victims at Guantanamo - the victim of suicide attackers who take no life but their own. And basic civil rights, become the weapons of terrorists.
