 Actually over 80 have been cleared by all federal authorities that are needed to be released. They aren't being released. This is to draw attention to their plight and being held forever without trial. I read about it on Democracynow.org.

Why didn't they/don't they numb them... If you spray the throat with numbing spray (like a sore throat) then you can't feel the tube.

Because they don't care if they feel it

I wish I could do more for them than share my opinion on the internet. That's a human right violation. One of the many we have no problem sponsoring.

I feel like the man who volunteered to be forced fed should be praised and respected for allowing people to see what really happens.

  I think they should let those out that have been cleared by federal agencies, and put the rest on trial, That's what I think.
