FD Editor’s NoteGee, I wonder how the General will explain the weight loss – of the detainees who aren’t on the hunger strike that does not exist.  Hmm…contraband Susan Powter workout tapes perhaps?  (Must have come in with the contraband underwear of a few years ago.) 

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico –  Lawyers for prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay say they are growing increasingly alarmed about the men’s health as a hunger strike expands at the U.S. prison in Cuba.

Attorney Carlos Warner met with a prisoner from Kuwait this week and says the man appears to have lost 25 pounds. He said 35-year-old Faez al-Kandari was pale and could barely stand. Several other attorneys have reported similar accounts after meeting or speaking with prisoners in recent days.

A prison spokesman says military doctors are closely monitoring the men’s weight and health. Navy Capt. Robert Durand also says the strike has grown to 26 prisoners, up by five since Monday.

Lawyers for the prisoners say many more are on strike in a protest over conditions at the prison and their indefinite detention.

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
