Guantanamo Attorney Found Dead in Apparent Suicide

An attorney who represented prisoners detained at Guantanamo Bay was found dead last week in what sources said was a suicide.

Andy P. Hart, 38, a federal public defender in Toledo, Ohio, apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Hart left behind a suicide note and a thumb drive, believed to contain his case files. It is unknown where Hart died, what the suicide note said or whether an autopsy was performed.

Hart’s death comes amid escalating chaos that has engulfed Guantanamo over the past three months—from a mass hunger strike to military commissions and renewed pressure on the White House to shut down the prison facility. Hart was one of three-dozen Guantanamo attorneys who signed a letter in March urging Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel to take immediate action and bring about an end to the hunger strike.

We all heard

about the food strike at Guantanamo. Wouldn't it be conspiratorial if it is really the feds starving the inmates? What a better way to rid them of the prison detainee population and say they starved themselves. Give me my tin foil cap! :)
So much chit going on lately it's hard to keep up.

Hate to get conspiratorial

but this sounds like either that flash drive had something more than case files or he got ghosted.

Breaking news from Ecuador!

Ironically, despite multiple public statements he would never commit suicide, today while flying in a chartered plane owned by In-Q-Tel, infamous whistleblower Julian Assange committed suicide by multiple gunshots to the back of his head, while hanging himself, with his hands tied behind his back, during a plane crash, into a skyscraper, which promptly pancaked.

Authorities suspect no foul play and he has already had a private burial at sea from a C-130 flying over the Atlantic.

After the break we will hear from Al Gore how extremely cool temperature and even snow in May are further proof of global warming.

Writing is on the wall

"Hart was also co-defense counsel for Joshua Stafford, 23, one of five men associated with Occupy Cleveland who were accused of plotting to blow up the Ohio 82 bridge over the Cuyahoga River with fake explosives supplied by an undercover FBI agent. Stafford is due to stand trial in June. It's unclear if Hart's death will have any impact on Stafford's prosecution."

There it is... FBI supplied fake explosives... this stinks to high heaven... suicide my ass

Gitmo attorney dead in apparent suicide


Published on May 2, 2013

Earlier this week, President Barack Obama had no other option but to make a statement regarding the Guantanamo Bay hunger strike. News reports claim that nearly 130 of the 166 prisoners are partaking in a massive hunger strike. The demonstrations stem from the confiscation of copies of the Koran and now a federal public defender, Andy P. Hart, was found dead in an apparent suicide. Hart left a suicide note and a thumb drive with files containing information on clients that were housed at Gitmo. RT's Sam Sacks brings us up to speed on the facility that Obama has promised to close.

Funny How Anyone That Defends What's Right

ends up dead of a heart attack, cancer, or suicide. Hmmmmmm. What's keeping AJ well?


I think its safe to assume

that AJ probably does not have a pre-existing heart condition. But yeah, in life people die, even the "good ones"...sometimes of heart attacks, cancer, or even suicide... I unfortunately personally know first hand of far too many people who have passed away, at way too early an age, from pre-existing heart conditions.

Or plane crash

Another favorite of theirs.

Or hanging.

suicide, right.

If he did, there goes the only attorney in America with a conscience. I'll bet we never know what the note said.
