Al Qaeda suspect objects to Guantanamo treatment - Yahoo! News

Reuters reports on the sad case of an al-Qaeda terrorist who doesn't like his new housing arrangements at Gitmo.

"An al Qaeda suspect who earned top privileges for good behavior in the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, asked a military judge on Wednesday to overturn a camp rule that detainees who face trial be held in maximum security.

Sufyian Barhoumi, a 32-year-old Algerian charged with training two other al Qaeda militants to build remote detonators for car bombs, had been granted communal living, up to 14 hours a day outside his cell and family-style meals in an area reserved for detainees considered "highly compliant."

But weeks before his pretrial military tribunal hearing on Tuesday, Barhoumi was suddenly transferred without explanation to a maximum-security facility where prisoners spend 22 hours a day locked inside cement cells and have little contact with fellow detainees."

Aaawww, poor guy. How 'bout we place him and all of his friends in a building, say about 110 stories tall, then douse the floor, walls, ceiling, furniture, even them, with jet fuel, set it on fire and challenge them to find a way out? Anyone who can escape before their prison collapses can have their freedom!
