Guards have begun strapping detainees into "restraint chairs" to feed them through tubes and prevent them from vomiting.

United States military authorities have taken tougher measures to force-feed detainees engaged in hunger strikes at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, after concluding that some were determined to commit suicide to protest their indefinite confinement, military officials have said. (...) Officials of the military and the Defense Department strongly disputed that they were taking punitive measures to break the strike. They said that they were sensitive to the ethical issues raised by feeding the detainees involuntarily and that their procedures were consistent with those of federal prisons in the United States. Those prisons authorize the involuntary treatment of hunger strikers when there is a threat to an inmate's life or health.

"There is a moral question," the assistant secretary of defense for health affairs, Dr. William Winkenwerder Jr., said in an interview. "Do you allow a person to commit suicide? Or do you take steps to protect their health and preserve their life?" Some international medical associations and human rights groups, including the World Medical Association, oppose the involuntary feeding of hunger strikers as coercive. (...) "He said that during these force feedings too much food was given deliberately, which caused diarrhea and in some cases caused detainees to defecate on themselves," Mr. Colangelo-Bryan added. "Jum'ah understands that officers told the hunger strikers that if they challenged the United States, the United States would challenge them back using these tactics."

    é, sim senhor... Do lado de cá quando ocorrem desvios, que ocorrem, há uma imprensa livre para os denunciar, há opinião pública e orgãos que melhor ou pior vão funcionando. Do lado de lá há o quê ? Maior diferença não pode haver.

    Deplorável. Criticar os guardas americanos por quererem que os seus presos estejam bem alimentados é de uma injustiça cruel. É para o bem deles.
