Rapper Mos Def volunteered to go through the same kind of force-feeding of food that 45 of 120 prisoners are experiencing at Guantanamo Bay Prison, or Gitmo. After being “OK at first,” Mos Def then said that it felt like his brain was “on fire.”
The New Yorker reports that this was a publicity stunt for Mos Def, but the last thing I thought about when I saw the video was buying one of his tunes.
Gitmo should be closed. An act of Congress can do this, but they must be forced to take action.
