Prisoner Abuse in Guantanamo

D-Sekou of Deskrat fame has posted a pertinent piece from truthout and NPR regarding the forced feeding of prisoners at the Guantanamo prison in Cuba.

Yousef was the second detainee to have an NG [nasal gastric] tube inserted into his nose and pushed all the way down his throat and into his stomach, a procedure which caused him great pain. Yousef was given no anesthesia or sedative for the procedure; instead, two soldiers restrained him - one holding his chin while the other held him back by his hair, and a medical staff member forcefully inserted the tube in his nose and down his throat. Much blood came out of his nose. Yousef said he could not speak for two days after the procedure; he said he felt like a piece of metal was inside of him. He said he could not sleep because of the severe pain."

This is torture not medical care.
