After noticing BobM fix a dozen links to this page, it becomes obvious (to me) that the article should be moved to Guantanamo Bay - full caps for a place name. Thoughts? human 14:44, 26 January 2008 (EST)
- yes - I'll fix the links.--Bobbing up 15:32, 26 January 2008 (EST)
Question on the origin of the term "Gitmo"
- No, it's just military slang, first letter, next important consonant, ending. They do it all the time (
hummerhumvee, huey chopper, thousands of other examples). ħuman 02:16, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
A note on the references
I am a derp and forgot to add a reason for editing before hitting save, so I'll put them here:
- The Globe and Mail link gives me a 404 error but the Reuters article I linked also contains the quote at the start of our article so I believe it is a good replacement.
- I replaced the Global Security html transcript of the UN report with a link to the UN Digital Library where people can download the pdf of the report. This globalsecurity.org website looks dated as heck, and I personally prefer sources straight from the horses mouth.
- The DoD link also gives me a 404 error. However I did manage to find the press release on their website and I found the pdf linked on wikimedia commons, so I booted the broken one and put those in instead. Is that sufficient referencing? I hope so.
- I also formatted the bare URLs as per the manual of style.
