Gitmo Terrorist Dies of Fun

Posted by Dave Blount at February 4, 2011 7:55 AM

A put-upon foreign terrorist vacationing at Club Gitmo has died — from overdoing it on an elliptical trainer:

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.

Cause of death according to the autopsy was heart failure or pulmonary embolism. At least he died happy, taking advantage of fancy exercise equipment and the leisure to play around on it while others are working to generate taxes to pay for it.

Speaking of finances, for about the same price as a nice elliptical trainer you could purchase an M60 and enough ammo to allow Comrade Obama to close Gitmo as promised. But times being as they are, we'll have to wait for suicide and natural causes to claim those who aren't just set free.

A wiser use of funds.

On a tip from Wiggins.
