Detainee Tortured, Says US Official

Bob Woodward, The Washington Post: "The top Bush administration official in charge of deciding whether to bring Guantanamo Bay detainees to trial has concluded that the U.S. military tortured a Saudi national who allegedly planned to participate in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, interrogating him with techniques that included sustained isolation, sleep deprivation, nudity and prolonged exposure to cold, leaving him in a 'life-threatening condition.' 'We tortured [Mohammed al-]Qahtani,' said Susan J. Crawford, in her first interview since being named convening authority of military commissions by Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates in February 2007."

One in five Guantanamo Bay detainees is on hunger strike

Most of them are being force-fed. Of the 248 inmates inside the ´, 44 are refusing food - but 33 of those are receiving nutrition with tubes that are forced up their noses and into their stomachs.

Guantanamo force feeding is "a form of inhuman and degrading treatment"

Force feeding, in the words of the World Medical Association, is "a form of inhuman and degrading treatment" that is "never ethically acceptable". More than 250 eminent physicians have protested against its use at Guantanamo and called for the navy doctors involved to be struck off.
