American Heroes

Digby, once again, reminds us of things we would all prefer not to have to notice. But we do. We do.
New details have emerged of how the growing number of prisoners on hunger strike at Guantánamo Bay are being tied down and force-fed through tubes pushed down their nasal passages into their stomachs to keep them alive.

I'm really ever so sorry to harsh your buzz, Redstate... but these are your American heroes doing this, you panty-wetting little pantloads.

Click through the link to Digby's post. The horror deepens when you find out what else there is to know about this story. Digby finally concludes thusly:
Someday, US Army grunts and innocent Americans with no operational information are going to be held captive by another country and that country is going to use the same rationale for imprisoning and tormenting them indefinitely. And the people who do it will eventually go to the ninth circle of hell and join George W. Bush and Dick Cheney as they scream into the void for eternity about how they had to become sadistic monsters in order to prove they weren't afraid.

"Hell is other people." —Jean-Paul Sartre
