Judge Slams 'Frivolous' Government Appeal; Pledges to 'Move Fast' on Guantánamo Tapes Release

WASHINGTON - A federal judge has slammed the Obama Administration’s stalling over the release of 32 force-feeding tapes from Guantánamo Bay, calling the Government’s prior appeal ‘the most frivolous I have ever seen.’

In a hearing this morning in Washington DC's District Court, Judge Gladys Kessler expressed her frustration at protracted Government delaying tactics in Dhiab v Obama, a legal challenge by Guantánamo's hunger strikers to prison conditions at the military facility.
