Apparently only terrorists wear digital watches?

NOTE: Apparently I forgot to post this a few weeks back… 

Apparently, the Pentagon believes that only terrorists would dare wear a digital wristwatch. And that wearing a digital watch is enough evidence to get your ass thrown into Guantanamo!

Wearing a Casio is cited among the unclassified evidence against at least eight of the detainees whose transcripts were released by the Pentagon after a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by The Associated Press.The prisoners, who stand accused of links to al-Qaida or to the Taliban in Afghanistan, say they have been shocked that wearing a cheap watch sold worldwide could be used against them.”Millions and millions of people have these types of Casio watches,” Mazin Salih Musaid, a Saudi detainee, told his military tribunal.

Even guards at Guantanamo wear Casios, noted Usama Hassan Ahmend Abu Kabir, a Jordanian accused of belonging to a group linked to al-Qaida, the terror organization that carried out the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States.

“I have a Casio watch due to the fact that they are inexpensive and they last a long time,” the 34-year-old detainee told a tribunal. “I like my watch because it is durable. It had a calculator and was waterproof, and before prayers we have to wash up all the way to my elbows.”

Now, does anyone else but me find this extremely scary?
