Rumsfeld: Gitmo Hunger Strikers Just "On A Diet"

It's amazing that this obviously insane war criminal is let out to talk to anyone.

Asked about the 27 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay who are currently on hunger strikes, Donald Rumsfeld said they were doing it for the publicity:
Well, I suppose that what they're trying to do is to capture press attention, obviously, and they've succeeded. There are a number of people who go on a diet where they don't eat for a period and then go off of it at some point. And then they rotate and other people do that.
And we rag on Bush for being an idiot?!!

Rummy's the only Admin official with more bloodthirst than Georgie. It only makes sense to let him off of his tether when the Poll numbers plunge (also known as "Tuesdays"). Sorry about the Red Sox, man. Maybe next year...?

So is this how it works ... ?

... Cheney sanctions torture, which is carried out via a starvation program at the hands of Rummy.

Makes sense.
