Day 2410: Camp X-Ray


Mr Millipede is to call on his US counterpart, Ms Condescending Rice, to release five men who are residents of the United Kingdom. Or at least they WOULD be residents of the United Kingdom if they were not currently residents of the United States' current version of Devil's Island at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba.

The lovely Liberal Democrat Sarah Teather
, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Guantánamo Bay, responded saying:

"This decision should have been taken years ago. Abandoning British residents to indefinite imprisonment in obscene conditions was a gross dereliction of duty by the Government."

The US Government though still thinks that the men, including a mechanic, law student and a volunteer charity worker, are HIGHLY DANGEROUS.

"We don't want to be the world's jailers. At the same time, we also don't want to see very dangerous people allowed to walk the streets freely," said State Department spokesperson Sean McCormack.

"Unfortunately, there seems to be some legal difficulty with us just shooting them," he didn't add.
