Unfortunately, this is probably pure BS. Personally, I think all those detained at Gitmo should be interrogated, tried, and hanged by the neck until dead.

He alleged that men who were known to be devout or were younger and unmarried were taken from their cells to a separate unit and forced to watch the women strip.

Muslims minds are never far away from the subject of sex, like the founder of the cult, the pedophile, murderer, and rapist Mo-Ham-Ed.

interrogated at gunpoint, beaten and subjected to "botched medical treatment" thought to involve amputation.

They obviously didn't amputate enough.

I'm reminded of the John Wayne movie where he is interrogating the man he earlier shot and has in the hoosegow. He's got the man by the scruff and asks him some question. The man responds "But I'm bleeding".

John Wayne looks at him for a moment and says.....

Not enough.......

I think that sums up my view on any reports of anything that may or may not have been done. If they can still complain about it they need a little more of it.

And the Red Cross has been in there.

And so have journalists. And bunches of politicians.

And several of the OTHER released prisoners said they were treated well.

This is crap.

They should've been shot in the head. Then their families should have been located and executed, too. Extreme, yes. But how many more recruits will they get if this is the punishment?

Muslims believe that lying to Infidels is no sin. The real sin is, so many "Infidels" in the West don't know the nature of the enemy and believe their lies.

No doubt these dirtbags will be planting bombs on planes, trains and automobiles in the very near future. Probably in Great Britain, terrorizing the very people who believe and sympathize with these thugs.

Lying to infidels: They have a term for it - "taquiyah"

They can lie to further the cause of death cult called Islam.

It may be that they were chained in the airplane during that first flight. That would be standard treatment for dangerous prisoners. The rest of this is nonsense.

I expect this kind of stuff from the Independent or the Guardian, but I'm surprised to see that kind of headline in the Telegraph. They should know better.

You should read the original Mirror article. The accusations are just laughable.And throughout it, he's just Mr. Tough Guy, refusing comfort.

But the best is this (Onelifetogive pointed it out):

"When I did meet the other Brits, we would reminisce about home - particularly the food.

And just remember, Jamal is a convert. This is important for a window into his character.

To heck with all of socialistic Europe.

I am sure that right now, there are a bunch of Spaniards that would love to volunteer at Gitmo to help with interregations.

Yeah, right. That's exactly what your standard American soldier from Iowa would say. UmmmHmmmm.

A while ago I heard that he had a new job that doesn't let him post anymore and/or it is keeping him too busy to do so.

Too bad, I really liked his take on the Continent. I would be really interested in what he has to say about Spain.

MY HELL IN CAMP X-RAY

Mirror.co.UK: NEWSPAPER of the YEAR

WORLD EXCLUSIVE

By Rosa Prince and Gary Jones

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/allnews/content_objectid=14042696_method=full_siteid=50143_headline=-MY%2DHELL%2DIN%2DCAMP%2DX%2DRAY-name_page.html

"Please Massa! Don't whips me no mo'! I'se jus' a po' ol' Talee-ban; I did'n' hurts no body, cept'n maybe a woman or 2. Please; jus' t'row me inta de briar patch..."

Or their editorial to reinforce it, AND to BLAME BUSH for Madrid!

"A TALE TO SHAME THE FREE WORLD"

http://www.mirror.co.uk/voiceofthemirror/

Remember, this is Mirror UK: Newspaper of the Year...so it MUST be true???

When you finish laughing yourself to death over the absurdities, just get very angry, and then remember they have a "Contact Link":

Be creative, and have fun; their might even be a prize for best refutation sent to them

I can handle the insult to my country's morality. One expects no more from such sources.

I am really peeved, however, at the insult to our intelligence.

What is happening here is that these scum are accusing us of the usual practices of Arab law enforcement and counterintelligence services. They don't get it -- even if we were that brutal, we are not so primitive as to need such crude and inefficient methods.

Besides how crazy we we have to be to do these things with the whole anti-American internationalist establishment worldwide panting for something concrete to pin on us?

If you look carefully, all of his accusations are supposed to make Muslims angry. The weird ones all have to do with purity as defined by the Koran (dogs are unclean creatures).
