13 Mar 2004 They Could Have Closed Their Eyes

One of the Britons freed from Guantanamo Bay incarceration complains of mistreatment. One of the complaints is that U.S. soldiers brought prostitutes to the camp and paraded them naked in front of the detainees, some of whom are devout Muslims.
I am not overly inclined to take the word of an accused terrorist who is not cooperating with authorities, but it occurs to me that even if this part of his story is true, all the prisoners had a defensive weapon against being forced to look at naked women: they could have closed their eyes.
