Because freedom can't protect itself
Barbaric. Why don't we try these people and convict them or free them. We are doing ourselves more harm than good by torturing people. Making enemies all over the world, and destroying any moral high ground we have ever had.
We, as a nation, have obviously completed disposed of the Geneva Convention!!! We are no longer a country that follows laws or reason. We are completely out of control and governed by the multi-national corporations, not we, the people. Woe are we!!!
While I do not agree with people refusing to nutrient themselves because they would rather die, this is a disturbing and disgusting portrayal of the american mentality: Do what we tell you, or we will make you. And employees of this nation are operating this way with the direct approval of obama. The more the citizens allow the government to abuse authority, the more it will push the envelope until all that remains is authority. You are allowing the government to pervasively expand its abuse and soon everyone will be subject to it. Thank you, Yasiin, for your compassion and willingness to be an example of a humanitarian. If I could, I would live elsewhere, but I am trapped by the same government which imposes its will all over the world. I wish america would take care of its own instead of forcing itself on everyone else, everywhere else...
Guantanamo should have been closed down a long
time ago. Instead it's a place for the U.S. to conduct hidden human experiments.
Mos Def - idiot ...... nothing here to see .... next
Seriously?? We are sticking up for terrorists?? I had a camera stuck down my nose for an ultrasound and I did not cry...boo-hoo! If they don't want to be force fed, maybe they should eat. I'm sure our government gives them halal meals.
