Obama Admin Doesn’t Want Anyone Seeing the Guantanamo Force-Feeding Videos

 (ANTIMEDIA) United States — On Thursday the Obama administration announced its intention to appeal a federal judge’s order to release video tapes from the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. The videos show a former detainee being forcibly removed from his cell and force-fed.

In October 2014, U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler ruled the Obama administration had to unseal video tapes related to the force-feeding of Abu Wa’el Dhiab, who was still being held without charge at the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Dhiab was kidnapped by the Pakistani government in 2002 before he was handed over to the United States on suspicion of terrorism. At the end of 2014, after twelve years behind bars without trial, Abu Wa’el Dhiab was finally released to Uruguay. The violence and forced-feeding procedures have caused permanent damage to his health and he is now confined to a wheelchair.
