Who the hell writes this stuff?

Is the AP deliberately misleading with this headline—"Terror Suspects Appear Before Cuba Panel." I clicked on it because—silly me—I thought it was about Cuba.

It's actually about hearings for three more prisoners at Guantánamo by the U.S. military tribunal. Well, "Terror Suspects Appear Before U.S. Military Tribunal" or "Terror Suspects Appear Before Guantánamo tribunal" might have been more attention-getting, since most Americans don't pay any attention to Cuba.

I know, I know. "Cuba" is a lot shorter than "Guantánamo," but does that justify such ridiculous inaccuracy?
