Someone get this woman a PR consultant:
A top US official has described the suicides of three detainees at the US base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as a "good PR move to draw attention".
Colleen Graffy told the BBC the deaths were part of a strategy and "a tactic to further the jihadi cause", but taking their own lives was unnecessary.
A good PR move. I suppose so. They're dead, but now the world will know this: During the four years the men were held at Guantanamo they never had access to a lawyer. They were never charged with any crime. They had no access to news of the outside world. They had been on hunger strike and were force-fed.
Yet apparently they know a good PR move when they see it.
In other comments, the camp commander said the suicides were an "act of asymmetric warfare waged against us."
Does no one even bother to coach these people on the use of appropriate language before they are interviewed?
