image for US Supremes Want to Wait on Gitmo Torture Owner of Supremes Calls in a favor

US Supremes think the torture at Gitmo should continue for a while longer as they contemplate the cases of people detained without charges, hearings or human riights for years on end. One of the more theatrical and moving moments in the hearing before the high court was a Drag Queen Quartet of Muslim Gitmo prisoners dressed a s the Supremes singing, "Come, See About Me!":

I've been crying
'Cause I'm lonely (for home)
Smiles have all turned to tears
But tears won't wash away the fears
That you're never ever gonna return me
To ease the fire that within burns me

It keeps me crying baby for home
Keeps me sighin' baby for home
So won't you hurry?
Come on Clarence, see about me
(Come see about me)
See about you baby

I've given up my terrorist friends just for you
My friends are gone
And you have too
No peace shall I find
Until you come back, Sam
And be mine
No matter what you do or say
I'm gonna love Muhammad anyway

Keep on crying baby for home
I'm gonna keep sighin' baby for home
So come on hurry
Come on, JR and see about me
(Come see about me)
See about you baby

Sometime's up
Sometime's down
My life's so uncertain
Behind the Guantanamo Curtain
From my arms you maybe out of reach
But my heart says you're here to keep

Keeps me crying baby for home
Keep on, keep on crying baby for home
So won't you hurry, John Paul
Come on Ruth, see about me (Come see about me, Sou, sou sou tio)
See about you baby (Come see about me, antonny)
You know I'm so lonely (Come see about me, Scalia)
I love you only (Come see about me, Stevie B)
See about your baby (Come see about me)
Hurry, hurry
