Let the Hunger Striker Die
Enter practicality. It seems that a large number of Guantánamo detainees were engaging in a hunger strike and the authorities were concerned about international pressure in the case of a hunger strike death. Solution: force feeding by restraint and forcing a tube down the nasal passages and into the stomach. Testimony revealed that the forced feeding is far from pleasant. Result: most striking detainees have abandoned their strikes.
