Testimony on second day of court challenge to force feedings focuses on long-term health effects on detainees after procedure
Oct. 7 2014
The methods used by the US military to feed inmates in Guantánamo Bay against their will presents a long-term risk to their health, a federal court heard on Tuesday.
Steven Miles, a doctor and professor of medical ethics at the University of Minnesota, told a courtroom that lubricating the feeding tubes at Guantánamo, used on hunger-striking detainees, can cause a form of chronic inflammatory pneumonia, and questioned whether the force feeding was medically necessary.
The condition, resulting from olive oil reaching the lungs due to misplaced insertions, would be hard to detect by physicians for released or transferred detainees, as it might look on x-rays like tuberculosis or lung cancer, Miles testified, calling the olive oil lubrication “astonishing to me”.
“There’s simply no debate about this. All the medical literature I’ve found said the [lubrication] had to be water-soluble. One doesn’t have to make very many salads to know olive oil is not water soluble,” Miles said.
Miles testified during the second day of a court challenge to the force feedings brought by Syrian detainee Abu Wa’el Dhiab, who wants judge Gladys Kessler to compel the US military to administer the forced feedings less painfully and to ban guards from forcing detainees out of their cells for the practice. Dhiab, whose lawyers rested their case on Tuesday, contends that the forced feedings and cell extractions are not medically necessary but are instead punishment for hunger striking.
Dhiab’s case has provided the first courtroom airing of a controversial procedure adopted by the military at Guantánamo, and represents the first judicial intervention into how the facility’s detention operations are conducted since it was established in 2002.
I’ll stand with my brothas. But I’ll never stand with them to stand against my sistas.
This is important
If they stand against our sisters, then they’re not our brothers.
Dallas County, population 2.5 million, now officially stands for “monetary and substantial reparations” for black Americans’ suffering, after the County Commission summarily approved a resolution by its only black member that the white commissioners never bothered to read.
John Wiley Price has been on the Dallas City Council since I was two years old. I’m almost 32. Dude knows the ropes (and the okie-dokes). And yes, he does rock cornrows whilst on the city council. Who gon check him tho? .
