Three paragraphs from a story about Guantamano in Sunday´s Guardian/Observer.
The most criticized detention facilities at Guantánamo are Camps 5 and 6. Camp 5 was built on the design of a maximum security prison. The $16 million two-story concrete structure can house up to 100 prisoners. Each detainee lives alone in a 12- by 8-foot cell. The cell features a narrow window in the outer wall and another slit window in the door. The thick metal door also has an opening with its own door to allow guards to pass food trays into the cell. Military officials say the maximum security features are necessary to safely handle what they call "very noncompliant detainees." A Camp 5 officer noted: "These are your feces throwers, the guys who are going to assault you with saliva."
It puts me in mind of the notice at a Zoo in the old, politically incorrect days: "THIS ANIMAL IS VICIOUS. IF YOU POKE IT IN THE EYE WITH A STICK, IT WILL BITE YOU."
