The Guantanamo Bay hunger strike is apparently still on despite President Barack Obama's renewed vow on closing the prison on the U.S. base in Cuba.
A U.S. military spokesman says there are still 100 prisoners refusing to eat as of Wednesday. Lt. Col. Samuel House says 23 are being force fed to prevent starvation.
President Obama’s (renewed) commitment to closing Guantanamo Bay remains highly suspect. Former prisoners, meanwhile, describe the military’s force feeding techniques as torture. There has been no policy change since the president spoke about Gitmo yesterday.
