Elliot has taken to internet radio to get his message out since the mainstream media has neglected to cover the strike. Elliot explains why he feels they wont touch it.
Listen live Fridays at 8:00 PM ET only on Going Beyond Radio.
This from Mr. Adams:
Guantanamo is wrong morally and by all religions, by international law and by US law. It violates the Magna Carta, Common Law (the basis of our law), the United Nations Charter, the Nuremberg Principles, the Convention Against Torture, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. It also is an affront to what our founding fathers set out in the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, the dream and image of America as a place of justice, the things I grew up being told the US flag stood for, and even national security. How have we gotten to this low point?
Anna Massengill’s stand-alone spy novels, Storm Over Guantanamo and Dominos of Deception follow the adventures of a unique team of men and women who seek a terrorist bent on the destruction of military and civilian infrastructure.Massengill spent six years living at Guantanamo, not as an enemy combatant, but as a teacher in that “suburban” American community of 10,000 people.John Wiley, a master diver with a secret, plays a deadly game of chess with Iranian and North Korean-sponsored terrorists. Dead bodies floating in Guantanamo Bay (GITMO), mysterious mala beads and rumblings in the Cockpit place both the naval base and the island of Jamaica on high alert. An attack is imminent!Storm Over Guantanamo has been described as a "well written and entertaining novel" by a judge in the Writer's Digest's 2010 Self-Published Writing Contest. Dominos of Deception was recently reviewed by a retired editor of The American Heritage Dictionary who characterized it as "half rip-roarin' yarn and half warm fuzzy family saga."This is Author’s Beat, sponsored by The Writers League of the Villages in central Florida.

in Self Help
On tonight’s show, we will do some house cleaning. Ebola is still killing people; more Guantanamo Bay prisoners have been released- this time to the Saudis! Obama is planning to expand the US role in Afghanistan (does this mean boots of the ground when he promised not to do that); there is a nominee to replace chuck haggle the secretary of state and the immigration bill will be soon voted on by the house. Yes, it is a lot to cover, but this is the world we live in!
we only talk about politics, but everything is political so all subjects are fair game in the show! Tune in tonight at 7pm EST at www.ltpolitics.us or 917 932-1078.
With the months-long hunger strike by detainees making the news, the detention facility at Guantanamo is once again back in the spotlight.
The hunger strike in Guantanamo has grown to more than half of the detainees there in the detention camp on the U.S. Army base in Cuba. At least 84 of the facility’s 166 detainees are now participating, protesting the conditions and their indefinite captivity. Detainees are refusing food, some of them since Feb. 10 following a search and confiscation of some of their belongings. The government has responded, force-feeding many of the detainees through tubes and 40 more medical personnel have been sent to assist with the effort. We will talk to: Carlos Warner, attorney with the Federal Public Defender of the Northern District of Ohio who is representing 11 Guantánamo detainees. David Schanzer professor at Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy and director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security at Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill. Laura Pitter, counterterrorism advisor for Human Rights Watch's US Program.
Chapter 1: Guantanamo Hunger Strike
The hunger strike in Guantanamo has grown to more than half of the detainees there in the detention camp on the U.S. Army base in Cuba. Detainees are refusing food, some of them since February 10th following a search and confiscation of some of their belongings. The government has responded by force feeding many of the detainees through tubes and 40 more medical personnel have been sent to assist with the effort. We talk to Raha Wala, an Associate at Human Rights First.
Chapter 2: Water Rights Dispute Between States
Texas has been suffering from a severe drought and rapidly growing Dallas-Fort Worth has found itself without an ample source of water. As a way to quench this thirst, the area has been looking to Oklahoma for help. Oklahomans have refused, given Oklahoma law prohibits sending water out-of-state. As a result Texans sought for relief through the Red River Compact, an agreement between Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas that Congress approved in 1980. The case reached the Supreme Court today where Texas argued the compact means they have a right to 25 percent of the water in question, a claim Oklahoma disputes. We talk to Erik Jaffe, Principle at Erik Jaffe PC and James McDonald, an associate at Williams & Connolly LLP.
Chapter 3: Texas Fertilizer Plant
As authorities and residents sift through clues in order to understand the massive explosion that occurred at the West Fertilizer Company in the town of West, Texas, last wednesday evening, there is still little insight into what may have caused the incident that killed 14 and injured 200. Nevertheless, some have attributed this lack of knowledge into the workplace conditions at this plant to a failure in workplace safety regulation. We talk to Tom O’Connor, Executive Director, National Council for Occupational Safety and Health.

1) A mother of two, Sherry West, who lost both her children to gun violence over the last eighteen years, is in peril. Her thirteen month old son was shot in a stroller ride by two teens, just because she didn't have money to give them. That baby has now died. Jane will discuss the ridiculous gun violence in our country and how it seems to be getting worse. But is it really about guns?
2) Jane will be discussing the Guantanamo hunger fast which has been conducted by prisoners for over sixty-two days.
