Urgent, just reported: Al-Zaidi in U.S. run Camp Cropper prisonIraqi TV al-Sharqiya just reported on the news that AL-Zaidi is transferred to Camp Cropper prison [the Airport prison, managed by the American forces].
The TV Channel announced that Al-Zaidi is in a difficult condition, with broken ribs and signs of tortures on his thighs. Also he can not move his right arm.
I would love to get my hands on him too...
Right out of the playbook.
Come on, they’re just trying to cheer us up.
Poor Baby! (The asshat!)
bruises on his thighs! poor baby....
Man, that’s a bad deal...
Lemme see if I can shed a tear...
Nope...Dry as a bone...
Bunch of ungrateful people over there if you ask me...
They need to strap him face down with his nose in one of his own shoes.
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.
Maybe he’s getting a generous portion of Springsteen. Let the decibels begin.
American journalists must have trained him. He probably knows Adam Clymer personally.
I’m looking for former presidents for my Former Presidents Dodgeball team. Anyone got Dubya’s number?
poor baby...maybe he wishes now he’d never thrown those size 10s
As the venerable Ed Sullivan has stated a thousand times via his show, "It's going to be a BIG shoe, a REALLY BIG shoe..."
Oh my, lets call a WAHHHmbulance.
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.
let’s waterboard him on pay per view
proceeds to wounded vet families
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
I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale!
Well, at least he still has 2 feet to wear shoes on.
Ummm.. any treatment will be reported as mistreatment. Nothing much we can do about that.
Has he pi$$ed off his god or something? ; )
If he had thrown the shoes at Saddam Hussein, he’d already be in the wood chipper.
Wonder why this “hero” never tossed a shoe at Saddam?
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.
I love it! hehehhehhehh.
I’m so over middle east reactions to anything.
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.
Two can play that game. Do you think Helen Thomas could dodge a well-aimed wingtip?
And the reason that over 4,000 American’s lost their lives over that country is because?
I'm guessing that when the son of the deposed king of Nigeria emails you directly, asking for help, you help.
Not the SHOES!
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.
Now that’s a pay per view show I’d watch!
He’s probably being told stories of people being shown pictures of a man with panties on his head. Oh, the humanity!
That is worse than panties on the head....
I only wish I had been sitting next to him. I would have attempted to torture him on the spot.
Is “current.com” connected to Algore’s TV cable network Current?
probably from when he was taken down.
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.
So much for credibility.
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.
