A tragedy like this hasn’t happened at Gitmo since the time a detainee got his turban caught in the pulley of a Total Gym® and accidentally hanged himself:

A 48-year-old Afghan prisoner at Guantanamo Bay collapsed and died, apparently from natural causes, after exercising inside the jail, the U.S. military said Thursday.

Awal Gul fell in the shower Tuesday night after working out on an elliptical machine in Camp 6, a communal section of the Guantanamo reserved for well-behaved prisoners, said military spokesman Army Col. Scott Malcom. The prisoner was taken to the base hospital, where he later died.

He leaves behind a camel, belt bomb and two Thighmasters.

    Contrary to the left`s rantings of mistreatment of prisoners at Club Gitmo, these detainees are living high on the hog, so to speak. The majority, as I understand it, have gained weight, been exposed to a wide variety of entertainment that they`ve never seen before and live in far better conditions than when they were free. I submit, this guy died of sheer enjoyment ! Perhaps it was guilt at experiencing an emotion not allowed by islam !

    Satan has them by the tail, shaking them like a dog with his favorite stuffed toy – and they think they like it that way !

    Put another way, a poisonous snake will bite you regardless of how nice you are to it !
