Guantanamo Sick Prisoners

This photo provided by the military lawyer of Guantanamo Bay detainee Tarek El-Sawah, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Deirdre G. Brou, shows El-Sawah in an undated family photo. El-Sawah is in terrible shape after 11 years as a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay, a fact even the U.S. military does not dispute. During his time in captivity, the weight of the 55-year-old Egyptian has nearly doubled, reaching more than 420 pounds at one point, and his health has deteriorated as a result, both his lawyers and government officials concede.
