“I’ve been detained at Guantánamo for 11 years and three months. I have never been charged with any crime. I have never received a trial.
I will never forget the first time they passed the feeding tube up my nose. I can’t describe how painful it is to be force-fed this way. As it was thrust in, it made me feel like throwing up. I wanted to vomit, but I couldn’t. There was agony in my chest, throat and stomach. I had never experienced such pain before. I would not wish this cruel punishment upon anyone.”

Lest we forget, this is happening *now,* under Obama’s watch:
“I’ve been detained at Guantánamo for 11 years and three months. I have never been charged with any crime. I have never received a trial.”
11 years, no trial, no charges, no justice. Remember this when you hear Obama / the USA bleating on about liberty and terrorism and how evil North Korea is.
