Whatever. He’s still better off than if he had thrown his shoe at Saddam Hussein or one of his sons. Those shoes would have been on his feet as they entered the wood chipper first. Ungrateful idiot.

Also he can not move his right arm.

Guess he'll be on the disable roster then.

But that shouldn't be a problem. Since he can't pitch, he can catch for a while.

Investigate the claims.

If true, there are idiots that need to be punished.

This individual is high profile. Any mistreatment will get attention.

Justice will not be served until he is photographed with lacy panties on his head. Sure beats the alternative of the AQ head removal ritual.

Binyam Mohamed, who spent time at the CIA prison, said: “There was loud music, Slim Shady and Dr. Dre for 20 days. I heard this nonstop over and over.

“The CIA worked on people, including me, day and night for the months before I left. Plenty lost their minds. I could hear people knocking their heads against the walls and the doors, screaming their heads off.”

Tracks played to prisoners are thought to include Springsteen’s ‘Born In The USA’, Eminem’s ‘White America’, ‘Hell’s Bells’ by AC/DC, ‘Babylon’ by David Gray and the theme tunes from Sesame Street and Barney And Friends. http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/music/a138264/spears-used-to-break-guantanamo-inmates.html

Ummm.. any treatment will be reported as mistreatment. Nothing much we can do about that.

If he had thrown the shoes at Saddam Hussein, he’d already be in the wood chipper.

You missed an extremely important point.

Those shoes would have been on his feet as they SLOOOWWLYY entered the wood chipper first.

Husseins (Saddam, not Barrack, I'm sure we'll find out soon enuf) tortures were known to take hours or days.

Release video of US troops banging him on his thick noggin with their combat boots.

That should prove at least mildly irritating to the towelheads when shown on the local Scream and Shout network.

Uday may be dead, but can we find the Baathist thug who ran the prison back when Saddam was in charge and give him his job back?

To paraphrase my dad’s old line, “Quit whining or I’ll give ya torture!!”

Iraqis can do with him as they please. As long as Americans aren’t doing the torturing. Personally I’ve got a towel, a bucket of water, rope and an old door with some holes drilled in it.

Investigate the claims.

I'm guessing that when the son of the deposed king of Nigeria emails you directly, asking for help, you help.

As I mentioned earlier, the Marines that have been there (and are going back) say when the locals get caught they beg for the Americans to take them, if the Iraqis take them, they know it won’t be Springsteen.

I agree there. People all around the world applauded Bush’s magnanimous response to the guy’s actions. And you could hear him getting beat up on the audio of the video when all those guys jumped on him.

Bush could score major major points with those parts of the world we do care about by interceding to get this guy out of Cropper. Well the taste for vengeance or even humiliation may be natural, it is more becoming in a world power to be generous and forgiving of inconsequential slights that have big publicity consequences.

It won’t be as much fun as pay-per-view waterboarding, but letting the guy go will really stick a spoke in the traditional “Bush-is-a-monster” wheel that the MSM like to spin.

I like the media blabbing about what an insult shoe-throwing is in the “Arab Culture.” That would be the culture that gave us women wearing burlap sacks, camel buggery and child suicide bombers, but likes to remind us how enlightened they were in 1300. For this fellow I have two words: Durka Durka.
