Guantanamo Bay Espionage?
I don't know exactly what to make of the arrest of two US servicemen for espionage at Guantanamo Bay. They are charged with sending classified information about the "detainees" held there, as well as information about the base itself, to Syria. My guess is that there is a variation on the Stockholm syndrome going on; the servicemen identify with the plight of the prisoners and offer to assist them in contacting family and friends back home. Then again, it could all be trumped-up charges designed to make headlines and distract us once again from the enormous and ongoing crimes of the demander in thief.
