Concerning torture allegations
Lately the media has been highlighting Guantanamo bay conditions and allegations that the US government is responsible for human rights abuses against the inmates. Most recently the subject of “force feedings,” have been a hot-button topic leaving many in the public questioning their continued support of an overtly violent war prison run and supervised by those who supervise our own nation. At a press conference last year well-regarded human-rights activist Madea Benjamin became a national and international sensation when she was escorted from President Obama’s appearance for heckling of the president concerning these allegations of prisoner torture. While the president can be applauded for his even allowing a dialogue between himself and Benjamin, the public still awaits the infamous “closing of Guantanamo,” as was promised by the Big O himself in his campaign platform early on. For many Americans its beginning to feel that by the time these allegations are unavoidable and need to be addressed the President will already be out of office, and thus the “passing of the buck,” will have ensued elongating the publics wait and shirking responsibility for the Obama administration. Madea’s interview w/ Evelyn Nieves @ Global Possibilities can be found at the following link: http://www.globalpossibilities.org/meet-the-woman-who-stood-up-to-obama-and-made-world-news/
