        Forced feeding is torture. The present situation is cruelty. That's on Obama.
        Maybe I misunderstood.

          Obama did confirm in his presser that it's his decision that no death due to starvation will be allowed on his watch and that's the reason for the forced feeding.

          OK, so yes, that's on Obama and I assume your comment is just an unrelated quip.

            complaining there is a mess. But you go a bridge too far when you say that's on Obama. No it's a mess we are cleaning up. You can't undig a hole. You can only fill it back in. It will never be undug.

              We simply disagree. The only things I say are on Obama are his actions. No one expects to "undig a hole", just to stop digging. Obama attempted to close Gitmo and that didn't work out. After that, what he's done are on him. Once his initial plan to relocate the prisoners to US facilities failed, a different plan was necessary to end the cases of unwarranted imprisoning or lack of trials. What he's done, that's on him and if you know that he's cleaning up that mess it's not apparent. Note, I'm not even expecting Gitmo to close or empty. Those who are found guilty in trials at Gitmo can stay there forever as far as I'm concerned. The torture of forced feeding must be stopped and indeterminate POW imprisonment is just not legal and rightly so. Also, there are prisons al around the world, in US facilities and otherwise. The endless inaction on Gitmo is unnecessary and self-defeating besides being cruel.
