Jon Stewart Rips Obama on Guantanamo - and Says Look Out for PETA (Video)

Jon Stewart ridiculed President Obama for not following up on a campaign promise to close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp -- and accused the jailers there of "foodboarding."

On Wednesday's "Daily Show," Stewart highlighted Obama's softening statements since his 2008 pledge to close Guantanamo -- and worked in some jokes about Aquaman and PETA.

He acknowledged that Congress has stood in the way of Obama's efforts to close the prison. But he noted that the administration has the right to send particular prisoners home, and hasn't -- even though national security agencies have cleared about 86 prisoners for release if certain security conditions are met.

To protest their imprisonment in legal limbo, 100 of the 166 Guantanamo's prisoners have joined a hunger strike. Nineteen of them are reportedly being fed through nasal tubes.

"Holy s---," said Stewart. "We've gone from waterboarding to foodboarding them?"

He also made a joke about foie gras: "It's a good thing for the U.S. government these prisoners aren't geese, or they'd have PETA all over their asses."
