The long list of Obama’s shames includes the retention and forced feeding of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, 84 of whom have been cleared for release, many of whom have never been charged. A short animated film produced by The Observer allows five of them to tell their story.
Reports of a hunger strike at the U.S. detention camp in Cuba began to surface in March. Today 17 prisoners are still on a hunger strike; 16 of those are being force-fed. Two are in a military hospital.
