Guantanamo - Torture Revealed! (SOMEONE ATE MY PEANUTBUTTER! NOT A JOKE!)
Little Green Footballs ^ | 3/7/06

Guantanamo - Torture Revealed

Scott Burgess has been combing through the newly released Guantanamo hearing transcripts, uncovering a horror beyond words: Guantanamo - Torture Revealed.

During his time in Guantanamo, Mr. Abbasi (writing in the third person) alleges that he was:

* subject to [unspecified] “mental stress and pressure”
* “willfully misdirected ... to pray north”
* deprived of “comfort items”
* subjected to an [apparently failed] “attempt to withdraw Qur’an”
* able to hear two guards having sex, while they “assumed he was asleep”
* distracted from his prayer by the “sharp intake of breath” of a female MP who’d been “sexually fondled”.
* offered a plate of pork
* the object of a conspiracy “to keep detainee ignorant of detainee’s allotted Tuesday recreation”
* subjected to a “partially successful” attempt to administer injections “under the guise of immunisation”, designed to “unhinge detainee’s mental and emotional stability”

While all of these acts are undeniably horrifying, being on a par with the worst excesses of Torquemada, even their totality pales in comparison with the most extreme of the tortures to which Mr. Abbasi was subjected...

Read the rest, but be warned — it contains a graphic depiction of inhuman abuse.

* “willfully misdirected ... to pray north”

I must admit I am guilty of this offense.

I willfully removed stickers from hotel room furniture indicating the direction of mecca and rotated them 180 degrees. I have done this in almost every hotel room I have stayed in throughout the Middle East and Asia.

I'd pay money to hear Bush say the following:

"We're being constantly accused of torturing the illegal combatants imprisoned at Gitmo, despite the fact that we're not using torture. However, given the constant drumbeat of accusations, I've decided to initiate torture sessions in the hope of deriving useful intelligence that will save the lives of Americans, our allies, and other innocent parties around the world. Because those making the accusations already believe we're guilty, we might as well derive some benefit from their perceptions."

Ok, lets recap, shall we?

1. Sunny Cuba with white sandy beaches

2.3 Hots and Cot, served ala carte (Duck l'orange anyone?)

3.Warm climate year round

4. Excellent health care (better than we taxpayers get)

5.Snappy, stylish, jumpsuits that never go out of style

6.Free Koran and Prayer rug and apparently, babes, too!

After reveiwing the above, I have to ask myself, What the hell am I doing in Saint Louis??!!

........had his peanut butter eaten by a guard "right in front of him".

One needn't be a bleeding heart to shudder at the inhumanity thus displayed.

The Horror! The Horror!
I'm gonna write a letter to Peter Pan about this atrocity right now!

You're kidding me! They actually have stickers pointing out the direction of Mecca? ROTFLMAO! It's so nice to start the day off with a good laugh : )
