Abd al-Nashiri, the man accused of being behind the 2000 USS Cole bombing, was hooded, handcuffed and threatened with an unloaded gun and a power drill. The unidentified interrogator also threatened al-Nashiri's mother and family, implying they would be sexually abused in front of him, according to the report.You read that right, dear reader - threatened with an unloaded gun and drill. And then threatened his family.
Another interrogator told alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, "if anything else happens in the United States, 'We're going to kill your children,'" one veteran officer said in the report.Oooooh. More threats.
In another instance, an interrogator choked off the carotid artery of a detainee until he started to pass out, then shook him awake. He did this three times.Oh boy! Now we're getting serious!! Anyone who hasn't done this to their siblings growing up had a pretty dull life.
The report describes at least one mock execution, which would also violate U.S. anti-torture laws. To terrify one detainee, interrogators pretended to execute the prisoner in a nearby room.Oh boy, next thing you know, Halloween haunted houses are going to be illegal too.
Need I remind you, my friends, that these so called atrocities (spit) are not even in the same universe as the actual atrocities committed by the scumbags our guys were interviewing. You know, actual rape rooms. Actual executions (with dull knives, caught on film). Actually using power drills on helpless captives.
The pantywaists running our government would have us believe that there is a moral equivalency between the acts committed by our side with the acts of terrorism committed by those we fight. All in a disgusting attempt to divert attention from plummeting poll numbers, raucous town halls, and a health care plan that is dying a slow, lingering death.
Hope and change my ass.
