Hunger Strike at Gitmo?

Via Eric Alterman, the Guardian reports today the 200 prisoners at Gitmo are on a weeks long hunger strike to protest their treatment. The Pentagon, with the straight faces only a lifetime of military discline can provide, says ONLY 76 are striking.

Gitmo already is an affront to the very core of American values regarding human dignity, and a repudiation of 50 years of adherence to a human rights standard that we are among the chief architects of. Now it has become an international showroom of the worst elements of American Right Wing Neo-Facism and xenophobia.
