Detainees Won't Be Told of Bombings

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba -- Some 520 terror suspects imprisoned here will not be told about the bombings that killed at least 37 people and wounded about 700 in London on Thursday, the commander of the detention camp said.

The detainees have been told about some news events, like the Dec. 26 tsunami and earthquake that killed more than 176,000 people in 11 countries in Asia and Africa, said Gen. Jay Hood.

"Obviously this appears to be a terrorist-related incident and for some of the enemy combatants we are holding, they would view this as encouraging," Hood said. "They would view this as part of another jihadist attack on the West ... So this is not the sort of current world event we would share with the detainees."

4. Look, a real live member of the American Taliban
I'm sure you find it comforting that terrorists like you have so much in common with terrorists in the middle east

7. Not told? It is all prophesied!
It is surely right there to read in any prisoner's copy of LEFT BEHIND. If they don't have a copy, I am sure the Army would be happy to provide.
