Tickle Torture: Can’t We Just “Move On?”

For people who say they are all about the future, they just cannot seem to Move On from the past

(Vanity Fair) The abuse, rising to the level of torture, of those captured and detained in the war on terror is a defining feature of the presidency of George W. Bush. Its military beginnings, however, lie not in Abu Ghraib, as is commonly thought, or in the “rendition” of prisoners to other countries for questioning, but in the treatment of the very first prisoners at Guantánamo. Starting in late 2002 a detainee bearing the number 063 was tortured over a period of more than seven weeks. In his story lies the answer to a crucial question: How was the decision made to let the U.S. military start using coercive interrogations at Guantánamo?

Probably with the knowledge that these Islamic extremist wackjobs, who had a little over a year prior killed 3,000 of our fellow citizens, probably held vital information that would save American lives. Folks such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. The Left likes to ignore that point, as they do not like America that much to start with, think 9/11 was our fault, in more ways then one, and seem to prefer Islamic terrorist rights over the safety of the USA. Go figure.

The second document on the table listed the 18 proposed techniques of interrogation, all of which went against long-standing U.S. military practice as presented in the Army Field Manual. The 15 approved techniques included certain forms of physical contact and also techniques intended to humiliate and to impose sensory deprivation. They permitted the use of stress positions, isolation, hooding, 20-hour interrogations, and nudity. Haynes and Rumsfeld explicitly did not rule out the future use of three other techniques, one of which was waterboarding, the application of a wet towel and water to induce the perception of drowning.

I’m outraged! Forced nudity? Isolation? Tummy rubs? Oh, the humanity!

This is just so bad, I recommend, since the lefties refuse to actually say what they will approve of, these measures for future detainees with information that will save American lives without being too mean

  1. No rice pilaf with supper
  2. give all detainees a teddy bear, let them bond with it over years, then take it away, making them vunerable
  3. really scratchy prayer mats
  4. cancel subscriptions to the NFL Network
  5. chips, dips, chains, whips
  6. Spend an hour with Glenn Greenwald and the Sock Puppets

What are your ideas?

PS: I am waiting for Excitable Andy to chime in with his normal “how dare you question my Conservative pedigree!” outrage.
