No 'Lord of the Rings' for Man at Gitmo

By BEN FOX
Associated Press Writer

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) -- Guards have confiscated a "Lord of the Rings" movie screenplay from a former child soldier awaiting trial at Guantanamo, his lawyer and U.S. officials said Thursday...

A spokesman for the detention center, Army Lt. Col. Ed Bush, said all three installments of the book version of J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy are available to prisoners...

"He wants nothing more in life than to see Lord of the Rings," his attorney said.

Well, as horrible as those camps may be, at least they have taste. []

Or maybe this is something to do with ending torture? []

Quite the opposite, Amárië; it's proof that the torture still exists []

Making a kid read rather than watch movies is torture? []

Well that proves it-- terrorists hate the book and love the movie!

More like the movie is so bad, it'll make the waterboard seem like "SURF'S UP!"

(Especially after seeing Legolas surving everything).

Still round the corner there may wait a new road or a secret gate and though I oft have past them by today
Tomorrow I may come this way and take the hidden path that runs toward the west of the moon or towards east to the sun
