"President Obama is right to recommit to closing Guantanamo. But it's time to do more than talk. Instead of sending more medics to force feed detainees, a process that can amount to ill-treatment, he should take concrete steps to keep his promise to close the detention facility. Even under current Congressional restrictions he can transfer out people like Shaker Aamer. Aamer has been cleared to leave and the UK government says he should be free with his wife and children in London. That process should start today."

-Zeke Johnson, Director of Amnesty International USA's Security with Human Rights Campaign
