Today marks seven years since President Obama issued his executive order to close the Guantánamo prison. This comes as the Obama administration has moved to suppress footage of a Guantánamo prisoner being force-fed. Judge Gladys Kessler had ordered the tapes be released in October 2014, after 16 U.S. media organizations asked for them to be made public, but the Obama administration appealed the order Thursday.
