Guantanamo shame

Assistant federal defender Carlos Warner represents 11 detainees housed at Guantanamo Bay. Ten of the men he represents have joined a 3 month long peaceful hunger strike against their decade-long detention without trial or hope. He describes in detail what his clients are experiencing, the ugly mechanics of the force-feeding inmates are being subjected to.

These are innocent men who have made a decision to die because our government will not release them. Instead of releasing them, our government chooses to force feed them …

President Obama says he wants to close our misbegotten gulag, but he has failed to do so. The national shame drags on.
