In the first half of this chapter, I assess whether the force-feeding practices at Guantánamo Bay are indeed consistent with the relevant World Medical Association declarations and the US Code of Federal Regulations. I argue that these practices are not consistent with either of the relevant World Medical Association declarations—Malta or Tokyo. While the Code of Federal Regulations is more permissive than these declarations, it does not give authorities a free hand in deciding when to begin a force-feeding regimen.

The Code of Federal Regulations is also mentioned in the Department of Defense’s “Review of Department Compliance with President’s Executive Order on Detainee Conditions of Confinement” (hereafter, the Walsh report), published in 2009. Ordered by President Obama within days of his inauguration, the purpose of the Walsh report was to describe current Department of Defense policies and practices at Guantánamo Bay, pronounce on their compliance with all applicable laws governing confinement by the US state (including Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions) and issue recommendations where appropriate.
