  1. Gitmo Nurse Refuses to Force-Feed Inmates

    A U.S. Navy nurse is reportedly refusing to conduct forced feedings on hunger-striking Guantanamo detainees. According to an inmate’s attorney, the unnamed male medical officer is the first conscientious objector to the practice of “enteral feeding.” His refusal was confirmed by the Pentagon, which reports that the officer has been assigned to “alternative duties.” Inmates have filed a legal petition to discontinue forced feeding, urging a rapid response to allow them to observe Ramadan.
