This is a clash of the civil liberties of protesters versus the rules of the Pentagon in applying medical attention of the incarceratedp
Even the Pentagon must know the prisoners will stop their protest if the agency would hear their demands and make the changes needed to address humanitarian concerns
they will have to deal with the ugly attention that the treatment of the prisoners have garnered

My honest opinion it to take the prisoners back to their own countries and release them.
They deserve to be treated humane
we better start acting like it.
Human rights activists have said U.S. medical personnel have been complicit in detainee abuse, and have denounced force-feeding of prisoners as a violation of international codes of medical ethics.
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - A Guantanamo Bay detainee who participated in a clash with U.S. military guards last month said it was sparked when guards tried to search prisoners' Qurans, contradicting the military's account of the melee, his defense attorney said Wednesday.The detainee also denied the contention by military officials that prisoners in the May 18 clash in Guantanamo Bay lured guards into a cell by staging a suicide attempt, defense attorney Kristin Wilhelm told The Associated Press.
The military, in its account soon after the clash occurred at the prison in southeast Cuba, said 10 prisoners used makeshift weapons to battle 10 guards. It was one of the most violent incidents at Guantanamo Bay, where the U.S. holds about 460 men on suspicion of links to al-Qaida and the Taliban.
Base spokesmanU.S. Navy Cmdr. Robert Durand said Wednesday that the military sticks by its account of the clash and stressed Guantanamo guards never touch or handle the detainees' Qurans.

Why would the military and the prisoners face off in such an explosion of violence if the guards did not do something to provoke the incarcerated?
