As the calls grow louder for the military to stop force-feeding some of the 100 detainees who have been on a hunger strike for nearly 100 days - we're learning not only how much money is being spent and wasted because of the current stand-off with detainees.
But also how much tax payers are shelling out to keep the prison open.
Our Chris Lawrence is at Guantanamo Bay. He's been given unprecedented access to the prison - and has more in a OutFront investigation.
If they want to starve then let them. This waste of space is costing us way to much money! And it's NOT keeping us safe otherwise we wouldn't have had the Boston Marathon Bombing
This is insane. Our troops are being sent to the field for pre-deployment training with out bullets to train with, the Army can't even afford port-a-potties...our soldiers are under equipped in Afghanistan yet Obama wants to send equipment to the resistance in Syria. I know this because my son is in the Army. It gets even better, he gets out of the army in Nov. 2013, he will not be deploying again, yet the army is trying to send him to pre-deployment training at an approximate cost of $10,000/soldier 3 months after surgery to repair his shoulder. Fiscal irresponsibility runs rampant.
