Prisoners at Guantanamo are being force-fed

According to this BBC news article, prisoners at Guantanamo Bay are being force-fed using tubes inserted into their noses to pump food directly into their systems against their will.

They are being force-fed because they tried to go on hunger strike to protest against the situation they are in. One former prisoner says he went on hunger strike because he believed his food was being drugged.

The article also claims that any doctor wishing to visit the facility is screened to ensure they agree with the policy of force-feeding.

I hope I don’t need to explain my ethical and logical problems with force-feeding prisoners and interrogating them while they’re drugged.

Force-feeding was administered in a humane and compassionate manner and only when necessary to keep the prisoners alive.” — Lt. Col. Martin
