Posted on 05/17/2014 5:12:56 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
A federal judge in Washington has temporarily banned U.S. military officials from force-feeding a terror prisoner at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay, at least until she can review his medical records and screen videotapes of authorities forcing him to eat during his ongoing hunger strike there.
If U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler permanently bars the military from forcing all hunger strikers to eat, the Pentagon would have to come up with a new way to secure the health and safety of many of the 150 detainees who are on hunger strikes.

Dude wants to die ....let him.
Let them starve.
What’s the point of this facility again? How much are we spending a year? Just put a bullet in the heads of these Islamists and dump them in the ocean.
Let all those MoFo Gitmo inmates, and many others die. The world will be a better place without them.
(Mo) Ham (mad) sandwitches don't go down well either?
I say kill him and free up the space for other terrorists.

Yeppers, throw biscuits and bacon in the cell and wait. It will be gone! And I Bet the Cat doesn’t die!
Sounds like a potentially good outcome. Offer him an MRE every morning; if he eats it, offer another for dinner. If he doesn’t, put a fresh one in his cell the next morning.
Yup. Put a plate full of ham and a beer in the room daily. The attempt has been made to feed them. Government cannot account for religious sensibilities since they misunderstood islam by committing terror. Thus they are not true faithful muslims and cannot rely on it as an excuse.
What a tangled web libs weave.
Why? Political correctness & appeasement run amok?
Plug in a laugh tape and watch the muzlim bastards starve themselves to death. I think you can just about guaranty that as soon as the muzzies realized that no one cared and we were going to let them starve themselves to death, the hunger strike for 99% of them would be over in a heartbeat.
One less rag head to deal with, good things come in many different ways.
The problem with letting this one starve is that quite a few others would then jump on that bandwagon, with their lawyers visiting all of the media outlets and screaming at the evil Americans torturing the detainees by not providing them food. And the truth would somehow never be stated in any of the dire pronouncements.
So let them die.
They somehow would automatically enjoy the same rights that we have if they set foot on our shores. Don't ask me how, I'm not a Commie. They then would get what would probably be considered a condo in jail, and a good chef that would cook them all the halal food they can eat, plus a $1000 prayer rug to worship their child-molesting god, then over the course of numerous trials, they'd somehow be found innocent, released, and given a green card, which would somehow end up as permanent citizenship.
They should stay at Guantanamo, no matter the financial cost. Better keeping them there than letting them waltz into the country as what I know would assuredly be a Trojan horse.
I hope you dream of Helen Thomas tonight. :p
Pity the dry cleaner who winds up with that particular prayer rug.

Here’s an idea — bind each wrist to the opposite ankle, behind his back, then sever his genitals and shove them into his dying mouth.
Make all the other hunger strikers watch.
Then show them the vids of the carcass being consumed by pigs.
Bet they get their appetites back.
At first I thought a lead injection, then decided
that would be too kind, force feed them chicharones
or pork sausage.
Humans can survive without any food for 30-40 days, as long as they are properly hydrated.
Severe symptoms of starvation begin around 35-40 days, death can occur at around 45 to 61 days.
The most common cause of death in these extreme cases of starvation is myocardial infarction or organ failure, and is suggested to occur most often when a persons body mass index (BMI) reaches approximately 12.5 kg/m2.
I remember when the Soviets force-fed Refusniks. We considered it a human rights violation and torture.
I miss that America.
“...perfect way to treat them is ...”
But that would be mean, intolerant, rayyyyy-cist, harsh, insensitive to their “culture”, disrespectful of their “peaceful religious views”...
All those wonderful things the CinC believes in.
