Headline Obfuscation

If the NYTimes decided to lead with a story about force-feeding prisoners at Guantanamo, why didn't they have the courage to just say so? Instead, the headline reads, "Tough U.S. Steps in Hunger Strike at Camp in Cuba."

While I'm awfully glad we're tough enough to strap a starving man to a chair, which is one in the eye to those folks who doubted our government, led by a lot of men who avoided doing any actual military service themselves, had the balls to order someone else to mistreat someone else, I can't get past the headline.

Why avoid identifying the "camp in Cuba"?
