    Ongoing Gitmo Hunger-Strike Spurs Prison to Impose Media Blockade

    Jason Leopold: Guantanamo Prisoner's ongoing hunger-strike and detention of 158 prisoners, including some 80 who have been cleared for release or transfer has increased pressure to close Guantanamo

    Apparently GITMO has a new policy to not report or release #'s of how many people are still on hunger strike because it attracts to much attention to GITMO. There also seems to be a good amount of prisoners at GITMO who are still on hunger strike.

    At home, we starve and sell our children for suicide bombs. In Gitmo, we hunger strike!

    IMO there should have been a closed media policy since the start.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Thewre was a 60 minutes report a few weeks ago after the hunger strike - unless this is a new one?

    Some of those guys have been there for almost a decade, be nice to actually give them a trial before they die of old age.
