“A high-calorie diet combined with life in the cell block—almost around the clock in some cases—is making detainees at Guantanamo Bay fat.
Meals totaling a whopping 4,200 calories per day are brought to their cells, well above the 2,000 to 3,000 calories recommended for weight maintenance by U.S. government dietary guidelines. And some inmates are eating everything on the menu.
One detainee has almost doubled in weight, to 410 pounds, said Navy Cmdr. Robert Durand, spokesman for the detention facilities at Guantanamo, a U.S. Navy station in southeast Cuba.”
According to the Geneva Convention, prisoners should receive food and clothing not inferior to nationals of the Detaining Power, and also should have opportunity for physical exercise, including sports and games.
Well, they’re certainly receiving an American diet, but what about the sports? Are these American too? Perhaps the inmates are just bulking up to improve their defensive line? Perhaps in a couple of seasons we’ll see the “Gitmo Insurgents” in their all orange strips playing exhibition games against the winners of the Army/Navy match?
You know normally after we get the info we need from them we either want to send them away or shoot them. But, hey that is why us intel people normally have officers who are not intel. It’s that whole ball and chain game.
