A US Navy medical officer has refused to participate in forced feedings at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. Abu Wael Dhiab, who has been held at Guantanamo since 2002, recently revealed the act of rebellion while speaking to his attorney. Like many of his fellow detainees, Dhiab is currently part a long-running hunger strike meant to draw attention to the indefinite detentions that are commonplace at the prison. Theyre also angry about President Obamas failure to close Guantanamo; Once he saw with his own eyes that what he was told was contrary to what was actually taking place here, he decided he could not do it anymore. The Pentagon has confirmed the nurses refusal to feed Guantanamo inmates against their will, though Washington isnt publicly identifying him.
