'Gitmo gives terrorists powerful recruitment tool' (VIDEO)

It's now half a year since Guantanamo's prisoners began their hunger strike.

The US military says the self-imposed starvation protest is waning - because inmates have been eating after dusk as is tradition in the holy month of Ramadan.

But painful force-feeding procedures and invasive body searches are still part of the daily routine for many of the prisoners.

Keeping the prison running, meanwhile, seems to serve as a recruitment tool for terrorists worldwide - that's what the senior counter-terrorism counsel for Human Rights Watch told RT.
