Hope ‘N Change Hits Gitmo. Well, Mostly Change

All is not unicorns and care bears down at Club Gitmo. I wonder why

But first, Lieutenant-Colonel Yvonne Bradley, a US military attorney for 20 years, will reveal that Mohamed, 31, is dying in his Guantánamo cell and that conditions inside the Cuban prison camp have deteriorated badly since Barack Obama took office. Fifty of its 260 detainees are on hunger strike and, say witnesses, are being strapped to chairs and force-fed, with those who resist being beaten. At least 20 are described as being so unhealthy they are on a “critical list”, according to Bradley.

“Binyam has witnessed people being forcibly extracted from their cell. Swat teams in police gear come in and take the person out; if they resist, they are force-fed and then beaten. Binyam has seen this and has not witnessed this before. Guantánamo Bay is in the grip of a mass hunger strike and the numbers are growing; things are worsening.

“It is so bad that there are not enough chairs to strap them down and force-feed them for a two- or three-hour period to digest food through a feeding tube. Because there are not enough chairs the guards are having to force-feed them in shifts.

Where are all the liberals and the American Credentialed Media to assail the torture and harsh conditions that are going at Gitmo under Barry’s watch? Of course, we have to take this with a huge grain of salt. This is pretty much an expected tactic by Islamic jihadis, making horendous claims, especially now, in order to put pressure on Obama.

Meanwhile, the ACLU is not impressed by all the change

“Hope is flickering. The Obama administration’s position is not change. It is more of the same. This represents a complete turn-around and undermining of the restoration of the rule of law. The new American administration shouldn’t be complicit in hiding the abuses of its predecessors.”

Love it! They manage to go BDS and blame Obama in the same paragraph.

    Well Teach where are the liberals ? well you are quoting from the ACLU so I guess they are there and speaking out. Liberals are willing to give Obama some time on this. He has already eased up the harsh conditions. i expect that we will see more changes when his asked for report comes back in 110 more days. It is not like he has been in charge for like 8 years already. H ehas inherited a huge mess there. And it will be very difficult to convict these men after what has happened. Most of the evidence was gotten through torture and that is illegal and also notoriously unreliable.
