Autopsy reveals Guantanamo Bay prisoner committed suicide

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico An autopsy has found that a Guantanamo Bay prisoner who died in September took an overdose of medication in an apparent suicide, a U.S. official said Thursday.

Adnan Latif, who was found unconscious in his cell in a disciplinary wing of the prison at the U.S. base in Cuba, took an overdose of psychiatric medication, according to a senior Defense Department official.

The official said it had not yet been determined how Latif, who was from Yemen and had a history of mental illness and clashes with guards, managed to collect enough medication for a fatal dose. Investigators are looking into whether he hoarded pills to take all at once.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the autopsy results have not yet been released and the case remains the subject of an investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

1. Guess he didn't like the lemon baked chicken.

Either that, or he had been ordered to be released and was held indefinitely anyway.

Well, he's free now...

3. Duncan Hunter is going to be perplexed over how he could turn his back on the citrus glazed chicken

with rice pilaf AND tasty fruits, the sample dish he showed Congress in his demonstration Guantanamo officials bend over backwards to make the prisoners nice and comfy, and the prisoners need to shut the frak up.


However, who can forget Barbara Bush (The Elder) claimed the hurricane survivors living in the Houston Astrodome had never had it that good, themselves.

After all the glorious wealthy Republicans have given this world. How dare anyone not thank god for their generosity.
