Description

This investigation offered a ground-breaking glimpse behind the veil of the most secretive prison conditions in the United States. Focusing on prisoners formerly held under Special Administrative Measures, or SAMs, the story highlights brings forward unprecedented information about a series of hunger strikes and force-feedings that took place between 2005 and 2016 on the highest security unit of the highest security prison in the country, Florence ADX. The story is told through the voice of Mohammad Salameh, a Jordanian man of Palestinian descent who was convicted of participating in the 1993 World Trade Center attacks. It is the first to show the widespread us of force feedings in US prisons, in violation of international medical ethics.
