Interrogators at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, forced a stubborn detainee to wear women's underwear on his head, confronted him with snarling military working dogs and attached a leash to his chains, according to a newly released military investigation that shows the tactics were employed there months before military police used them on detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.Call me a nasty piece of work if you want but I am pretty convinced that sticking a bra on a guy's head was not in the Gestapo's bag of tricks. Nor, frankly, is it something I can get too worked up about. Of course I also could not get too terribly concerned about the guy in the hood with the wires attached to his hands at Abu Ghraib.
Qahtani, according to the investigative report, was once attached to a leash and made to walk around the room and "perform a series of dog tricks." The report also notes the use of "gender coercion," in which women straddle a detainee or get too close to them, violating prohibitions for devout Muslim men on contact with women. Interrogators also threatened to tell other detainees that an individual is gay, according to the report. Detainees at Abu Ghraib were posed in mock homosexual positions and photographed.So what? This is not torture, this is the use of a cultural difference to obtain information. Is that so terribly wrong?
Can anyone honestly say that this is worse than this.GuantanamoAbu Ghraib
