WTF? Suicides at Illegal Prison were 'Acts of War'

I just had another WTF? moment.

Three inmates at the US Guantanamo Bay Military Base commited suicide and the US Military has called it "an act of asymmetrical warfare" (Rear Adm Harris)

So, killing yourself after being held in a globally condemned prison without any legality or way of appealing your incarceration for several years is not an act of desperation but an act of war?

It's comments like this that reflect very badly outside the US Rpublican Offices and Homes that gives America the damning reputation it has in many areas of the world.
