    That is not acceptable. It would be too easy for a secret prison with no public oversight to start murdering prisoners via starvation and blaming it on "their own rebelliousness". The place needs to be opened up to inspection by the public and they need to be fed.

    These people are being held indefinitely with no trial. How is that humane?

    That's just paranoid delusion. There have been many "inspections" and "investigations" of the conditions at Gitmo. There is no "murdering" going on there.

    It's much more humane than the scary "ghost" prison, and it sure as hell isn't "torture."

    If we wish to be a moral authority, we must adhere to principles.

    Even when they're terrorists.

    How do we know they are terrorists. Has any of those on hunger strike been tried and found guilty of crimes?

    Not saying America = NAZI state but nazi secret police used camps to starve people then shifted them to other camps saying they were "sick". Seeing as all this crap is secret how do we know this isnt going on under America's wings also? Shut the prisons down.
    Most would prefer we shut down terrorism. I see far more people blaming Americans for their response to terrorism than blaming the terrorists themselves.
