AFP reports:

Four Britons who were released Wednesday after their return from a US military detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba still pose a “significant threat” that British authorities have assured they will take steps to address, a Pentagon spokesman said.

The United States understood, however, when they transferred custody of the detainees to British authorities that they would be released if no charges could be brought against them, said Lieutenant Commander Flex Plexico.

Interesting and all, but the main reason I’ve posted this is so we can rejoice in the name “Flex Plexico�?, as so many others have done before us.

UPDATE. Scroll down: Flex takes pix!

    1. Impressive, but I still think the most unfortunately named person I’ve ever heard of is a man, who is, I believe, an offensive lineman for the Oakland Raiders, named Brad Badger. I challenge anyone to better that!

    1. Ben Dover.

      Real name from my high school close, who sat next to, no joke, Amanda Rider.

      What manner of name is Plexico, anyway?

    1. So, we can’t keep these animals in Gitmo. We can’t hold them in the UK. Remind me why, under the laws of war, we can’t execute them?

    1. NASA actually has a Shuttle pilot named Vance Brand, which is like the perfect astronaut name.  You can just hear his chiseled jaw chipping the inside of his visor…

  1. This could be an interesting thread … nothing about the Guantanamo Bay people (I’m sure there’ll be plenty to read about that here regarding the grub Habib real soon) … I went to primary school with Richard Cocks … probably funny to little grommets back then but not as funny as when we had Dick Face as a recent NSW Labor MP … I wonder how his face looked after being fined for lying to the ICAC just recently … and I once had a customer called Harry House.  Keep them comming …
