    Yes, folks, it's getting worse.

    Captured terrorists, brutally restricted by the U.S. to having only two strawberries in their shortcake instead of three for dessert after dinner, have now been cut down to one.

    It's enough to make a terrorist consider another line of work.

    (No truth to the rumor that that was the whole idea.)

    Exclusive: Lawyer says Guantanamo abuse worse since Obama

    LONDON (Reuters) - Abuse of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay has worsened sharply since President Barack Obama took office as prison guards "get their kicks in" before the camp is closed, according to a lawyer who represents detainees.

    Abuses began to pick up in December after Obama was elected, human rights lawyer Ahmed Ghappour told Reuters. He cited beatings, the dislocation of limbs, spraying of pepper spray into closed cells, applying pepper spray to toilet paper and over-forcefeeding detainees who are on hunger strike.

    The Pentagon said on Monday that it had received renewed reports of prisoner abuse during a recent review of conditions at Guantanamo, but had concluded that all prisoners were being kept in accordance with the Geneva Conventions.

    "According to my clients, there has been a ramping up in abuse since President Obama was inaugurated," said Ghappour, a British-American lawyer with Reprieve, a legal charity that represents 31 detainees at Guantanamo.

    Oh! well let's trust "his clients". I'm sure they're all innocent too, because they say so... LOL...

    This Ghappour *cough* ambulance chaser *cough* should be stripped of his citizen-ship and flogged...
