Bush's Duct-Tape Mummystate -- Or, Saving Western "Civilization" Via Medievalist Savagery

Torture, torture, torture.

You'd think someone would tell these people the stuff they do is wrong.

You know, like their Mommies and Daddies.

Did Barbara Bush ever tell Bubble Boy that exploding toads was wrong?

Apparently not.

Anyway, Jesus wept, here's more fun stuff from Gitmo.

Your tax dollars at work.


WASHINGTON (AP) - FBI agents documented more than two dozen incidents of possible mistreatment at the Guantanamo Bay military base, including one detainee whose head was wrapped in duct tape for chanting the Quran and another who pulled out his hair after hours in a sweltering room.

Documents released Tuesday by the FBI offered new details about the harsh interrogations practice used by military officials and contractors when questioning so-called enemy combatants. . . Some military officials and contractors told FBI agents that the interrogation techniques had been approved by the Defense Department, including directly by former Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld. . .

"I did observe treatment that was not only aggressive but personally very upsetting," one [FBI} agent wrote, describing seeing a man left in a 100-degree room with no ventilation overnight. "The detainee was almost unconscious on the floor with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently literally been pulling his own hair out throughout the night."

Another agent said he heard several "thunderclaps" then saw a detainee lying on the floor with a bloody nose. Interrogators told the agent the man was upset and had thrown himself to the floor.

Hmm. That's the kind of excuse wifebeaters and childbeaters use, is it not? "She ran into a door." "She just tripped and fell."
