Amid Gitmo strike, ex-detainee tells of force-feed

Jun 15, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Stars and Stripes

For more than three months, the U.S. military has faced off with defiant prisoners on a hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay, strapping down as many as 43 each day to feed them a liquid nutrient mix through a nasal tube to prevent them from starving to death.

These prisoners, in their own country, assuming that were not already be-headed, would have been left to starve to death.

The choice here is simple---Execute them if they are guilty of capital crimes, deport them to their own countries otherwise. Period!

Why is our leadership so crummy??? My guess is that both parties are only allowed to nominate puppets who carry out the orders of the NWO Globalist Oligarchy.

If the Gitmo prisoners don't want to eat then we can save some of the 900,000 dollars per year we now spend on their upkeep. If they kill themselves by blowing themselves up or starving themselves they got what they wanted. At least in the latter case they don't kill innocent people.

Um, what are the prisoners guilty of doing? Were they ever charged with a crime? What if you were put there and never charged with a crime? Why do you hate our Constitution?

Ask Obama not me. Obama is keeping them from being tried in a military court.

Gitmo????? "American justice" in action? Whatever happened to trial and due process???
It is odd. It's hard to know Obama's handlers reasons for not letting the inmates proceed to trial?

Dearborn, an American town with a large Islamic population, so where do your
sympathies lie, with rabid terrorists who hate America or with the country that provides you with a home and livelihood. If you have half a brain, this shouldn't be difficult. If you are on the side of the blood-thirsty savages, you should consider removing yourself to the loving land of sharia and be happy with your own kind.

These are non-citizens who are
also terrorists devoted to destroy this country, most other countries would have given them a noose or worse rather than detainment. Considering the threat they and their kind pose to Americans, they are getting off quite easily. By the way, how did you Brits treat captured members of the IRA? Don't complain of the speck in your neighbor's eye...

Um, why, what did they do wrong? Did they talk bad about our President or something? Is it a crime to say bad things about President Obama? Would we want everyone (ourselves included) to be "judged" and (mis)treated like the life-long prisoners, I mean, detainees at GITMO????? Where is it written in any US or international law people can be legally imprisoned indefinitely without charges against them?????

Bushie, is that YOU???? LOL

"You are either with us or against us!"

Blow it out your piehole. It seems to me that YOU hate the US Constitution and liberty. I'm not Muslim and don't practice Sharia law. Keep your ASSumptions to your ignorant self. If you don't love the US Constitution, then you should move to another country. I bet you're afraid to open your closet at night because of the monsters there. LOL

If they are terrorists, then charge them with the crime. It's that simple, there must be some proof, if the charge is true.

Why not waterboard them until they tell us where the WMD's are????

Are you crazy???

What if the government put you there indefinitely and they never charged you with a crime, never gave you an attorney, never let you see your family again, etc.?????

What does the US want from them? What are the charges against them????

I bet you like the domestic spying program too!!! LOL

Wait until they put chips in our heads, then they can track us 24/7. It will be easier to put us all in detainment camps.

So much for freedom! LOL

They are prisoners of war; caught on the battle field. Obama should let them be tried in a military court.

Great Post! Better to let one criminal go free than imprison one hundred innocents.
How many of the Gitmo prisoners released went back to the battle field? 30% that we know of, the rest are probably torturing and beheading innocent non-Muslims.
