AGUILERA AS 'TORTURE'
Jun 13 2005
OFFICIALS at America's Guantanamo Bay prison camp used Christina Aguilera music to interrogate suspected terrorists, a leaked report says.
Detainees were also made to stand for the US national anthem during probing approved by Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld.
The secret 84-page log details the questioning of 'Detainee 063' - believed to be Mohammed al Qahtani, the so-called 20th hijacker.
Other techniques included a puppet show mocking al-Qaeda and taping photos of September 11 victims to detainees' trousers
How cruel! Impeach Bush!
Wow...how insensitive. /s off
I certainly hope that the White House doesn't cave on this. After all, these detainees still have their heads and lives intact...
...though being forced to listen to Christina Aguilera certainly qualifies as torture in my book. ; )
If they wanted to seriously torture him they would have resorted to Barry Manilow.
No - they'd have looped Muskrat Love.
I wonder where all the whiners who say we are mistreating the Gitmo dudes are when innocents are being beheaded on TV? Due to this I find it immensely difficult to give a darn about 'Gitmo abuses.'
What they ought to do is tape pictures of the Moslem victims to these jackass's trousers. Of course they'd have an excuse for that too.
What i want to know is this- did these techniques result in any information, or were these "professionals" as utterly ineffective as these procedures would indicate?
Yes or no- did this lead to useful intelligence?
Endless Matt Drudge bumper music...
Hillary, Gore & Kerry speech replays would have sufficed- apparently sound torture has not been fully implemented yet.
Probably not... maybe the best thing to do would be to outsource the interrogations to a Muslim country.
Ask me if I care:
If there was any puppet sex involved in the show, would that be against the Geneva Convention?
[Freepmail me to get on or off this Not-A-Ping-List.]
Here's how the anti-Bush logic works:
It's not that all Gitmo detainees are INNOCENT,
it's that ONLY THE ONES WE ABUSE ARE INNOCENT,
As though this Administration has an unerring instinct to FIND and SINGLE OUT
FOR BAD TREATMENT , ONLY the innocent. Chew on that logic for a while.
One can easily transfer this conceit to the war in Iraq, where the same thing is assumed.
I only opened this thread for photos, darn.
Beheading vs. Loud music = Amnesty calling Gitmo the Gulag of our time.
That's Liberal Logic for ya!
If they really wanted to inflict pain, they'd make them watch the Billy Jack trilogy.
According to the log, his handlers at one point perform a puppet show
satirizing the detainees involvement with al-Qaeda.
So Doug is part of the torture crew, then. From the ever-prescient Pythons:
Vercotti: Doug (takes a drink) Well, I was terrified.
Everyone was terrified of Doug. I've seen grown men pull their own heads off rather than see Doug.
Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug.
2nd Interviewer: What did he do?
Vercotti: He used... sarcasm.
He knew all the tricks, dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes and... satire.
He was vicious.
