Some force-fed captives were cleared for release from Guantanamo years ago

At least four of the captives being force-fed at Guantánamo were cleared for release years ago. As of Wednesday, the U.S. prison in southeast Cuba classified 100 of its 166 captives as hunger strikers, according to Army Lt. Col. Samuel House, a prison spokesman. Navy medical workers were administering tube feedings to 23 of the hunger strikers, four of them at the prison hospital.
