Force Feeding and Ramadan

With Ramadan starting next week and at least 44 men on a hunger strike and being force fed by the military things are about to get a lot more tense.... The problem is that the military does not have enough torture equipment to force feed the men only at night- and the question becomes what will the military do? Will the military decide that the right to torture the men by force feeding them is a higher calling than the men's religion? Will the military force feed the men during the day? Attorneys from Reprieve raised this issue in a new filing in federal court. Two of the judges have told the government that it must respond by tomorrow. Read the pleading and more about what Reprieve is doing here.
