As Barack Obama delivered his speech on drone strikes and Guantanamo prisoners, he was heckled by a woman who demanded he release hunger strikers at the controversial facility. Obama responded:

The heckling has been attributed to the social justice group "Code Pink," specifically to activist Medea Benjamin
