Netherlands, Mexico, Portugal Win World Cup Openers June 11 (Bloomberg) —
Portugal, Mexico and the Netherlands beat lower-ranked opposition as the third day of soccer's World Cup ended without the surprises that punctuated the start of the tournament.
America has denounced as "a good PR move" the suicides of three terrorism suspects at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. The comment was made by Colleen Graffy, a senior State Department spokesman, who told the BBC World Service that the suicides were "a tactic to further the jihadi cause". The statement bolstered assessments from senior American commanders that the two Saudis and a Yemeni were hardened terrorists who hanged themselves as part of a propaganda war against the United States. Rear Adm Harry Harris, the camp commander, said: "They have no regard for human life, neither ours nor their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation but an act of asymmetric warfare against us."
This is a disgrace.
