Kucinich: Gitmo black mark on US, absurd & lawless
A top US general says the hunger strike among Guantanamo Bay prisoners shows their frustration with the government's failure to close the facility - rejecting reports it's over mistreatment and the desecration of the Koran. The number of participants acknowledged by the Pentagon has now risen to 25 - but detainees' lawyers maintain it's more than one hundred. Former Democratic Congressman and two time presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich, says Guantanamo is a symptom of America's ongoing post 9/11 anxiety.
