GITMO Detainees Devour Latest Harry Potter Yarn...

Some detainees at Guantanamo Bay are filling the long hours reading the most recent offering of J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series, the Washington Times is reporting.

According to a source inside Club Gitmo, not only do these terrorist-wannabes have a library of 800 books (outside of the Koran) but many of them are really into Harry Potter. Says the source, named Lori, "We've got a few who are kind of hooked on it. A couple have asked if they can see the movie."

Aside from this story being fairly amusing, I have a suggestion for the folks running the place. New "coercion" tactic - threaten to spoil the ending!
