In conjunction with The Guardian, the artist/actor formerly known as Mos Def, Yasiin Bey released quite the startling (and disturbing) footage of himself undergoing the standard process of force-feeding detainees at Guantanamo Bay. The message he's trying to convey in the clip is what many Islamic community leaders are calling on the Obama administration to rethink in lieu of the month-long Ramadan fast that beings today (July 8th).

This is kind of a bit much, so for those who would feel away about this I'd suggest you head over to the next post.

    It's nice to see Mos side with those responsible for 9/11. At least he isn't doing this to increase popularity or album sales.

    ^lol at this basic nigga. funny how this form of force feeding looks like terrorism/torture in of itself. and also out of the 775 detainees to be at Guantanamo Bay, 599 have been released without charge after being wrongly prosecuted and arrested. So why don't you pick up a book and educate yourself before you assess something you obviously know nothing about. peace.

    ^^idiot - most prisonners in Guantanamo is either held without any charges or have been aquitted but not cleared for release..
    Big up to Mos - empathy could help some of you American imperialists - all sufferings are worth our concern - not just the suffering of a few who live our way of life..

    It's not nice to see such an ignorant comment on a site such as this. Ignorant American redneck views belong on country music sites or foxnews. You're listening to the wrong music. Most detainees have no remote connection to that event.
