Constitutional Faces: Hunger-Striker At Guantanamo Begs President To Let Him Go

April 14th, 2013

This is unreal. Samir Naji al Hasan Moqbel, A detainee at Gitmo dictated a letter to his attorneys over the phone, and the New York Times published it.

The only reason I am still here is that President Obama refuses to send any detainees back to Yemen. This makes no sense. I am a human being, not a passport, and I deserve to be treated like one.

I do not want to die here, but until President Obama and Yemen’s president do something, that is what I risk every day.

I still cannot believe that President Obama is furthering the policies of President Bush at Gitmo. It is surreal. What exactly was that Nobel Prize awarded for?
