Hard-core detainees at Guantanamo Bay routinely hurl their waste and vomit at their guards in daily, stomach-turning acts of defiance, a top Pentagon official told lawmakers. “Splashing,” as Marine Gen. John Kelly, the commander of U.S. Southern Command, called the practice in testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, is just one of the occupational hazards faced by the men and women guarding some 122 prisoners who remain at the compound. Kelly later elaborated that the term referred to throwing “a little cocktail” of “feces, urine, sperm, vomit” at the guards. Guards have also been assaulted by prisoners and kneed in the groin, according to Kelly. “If they can assault the guards physically, they’ll do it,” he said, vowing “I will not back off” from protecting the guards. Abusive prisoners are restrained and sometimes moved to single cells, he said.
Nasty! Sounds like they’re being FAR too nice to these vermin. Maybe they should remove their prayer rugs and Korans..and feed them pork. Respect is a two-way street; NOT one-way. And, if these animals are acting this way, while demanding (through their ACLU-provided attorneys) their special diets, prayer rugs, Korans and so on… Then, they oughtta have all of that taken away…and given MREs with pork in em. That’s what I’d do if I was the camp commander..
