Just in Case You'd Forgotten

The American Gulag is still operating. I know that it doesn't make much news anymore, but, yeah, there are still about 500 people being held indefinitely at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. The New York Times had a story today about how the number of hunger strikers has dropped dramatically lately, and with good reason: The prisoners are being force-fed through tubes. It's sickening.

Check out Jeanne d'Arc's take on the whole thing (cross-posted at This Modern World, where I found it). It's definitely worth the time it takes to read. It should turn your stomach.
