Three detainees at GITMO hanged themselves on Saturday. Colleen Graffy, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy (that is, under Karen Hughes), told a BBC radio news programme yesterday that the suicides were

a good PR move to draw attention.
(A Pentagon spokesman later dissociated himself from the phrase.)

That's what I call really putting yourself in the other person's shoes.

Those vile detainees will stop at nothing to achieve their unholy goal of getting a trial.

I've never seen people enjoying their own deaths so much.

The only possible description of this collection of knuckleheads is:

The Gang That Can't Shoot Straight.

So, she believes her callous pronouncement will detract from any PR punch the suicides might create?

A remark worthy of Ann Coulter -- eerily similar in fact to Coulter's much-quoted line. Maybe there's an RNC talking points directive: "Responses to Death, Ours and Theirs."

BC don't insult "The Gang That Can't Shoot Straight" by comparing this administration to them. In fact it might cause great harm to the reputation of someone like Benito Mussolini if Bush & Co. were to be campared to him.
