MoveOn.Org Petition Demands Gitmo Detainees 'Stop Torturing Obama'

From Legal Insurrection:

Petition Statement

Dear Hunger Strikers,

We understand that indefinite detention is not a picnic and that many of you are probably homesick. But the hunger strike is doing nothing to hurt the Congressional Republicans, who are actually the ones responsible for your imprisonment. Meanwhile, the man who has pledged repeatedly to free you is said to be suffering from deep anguish. Obama has your back, but do you have his? Please call off this ill-advised hunger strike.

The petition goes on to implore the prisoners to "contribute $3 or more today to support President Obama's agenda!"
