"A group of 16 news organizations is asking a federal judge to make public a batch of videos of a hunger-striking Guantanamo Bay prisoner being forcibly removed from his cell and force fed," reports Josh Gerstein at Politico. "Thirteen of the videos were filed in U.S. District Court earlier this month, but they're currently under seal because the Defense Department has classified the videos as "secret" national security information. In an order signed Thursday, Judge Gladys Kessler approved the filing of 15 more videos with the court."
