Gitmo Force-Feeding Video to Be Unsealed

A federal judge on Friday ordered the Obama administration to unseal 28 videotapes of Guantanamo prisoners being force-fed. Sixteen news organizations sued the government to access the videos. Force -feeding at Gitmo has been likened to torture by lawyers for Abu Wa’el Dhiab, a Syrian prisoner who went on hunger strike to protest his treatment at the military prison. Hunger strikes peaked last year when 106 of 166 detainees refused to eat, and 45 of them were force-fed.
