Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, according to the 9-11 commission report, was the mastermind of the Oct. 12, 2000, attack on the U.S.S. Cole that killed 17 U.S. sailors.Now, if they wasted a perfectly good Cuban cigar on this piece of shit, then yep, that's pretty bad. If it was a cheap cruddy King Edward or the like, then that's ok. But I'll be damned if I think it would be worth it to waste a good Cohiba or Romeo and Julietta on some terrorist asshole.
Nashiri was also the target of an "unauthorized" CIA interrogation technique (that had not been legally vetted by the Justice Department) that is described in a May 7, 2004, CIA inspector general's report that was partially declassified by the Obama administration this week.
CIA officers blew smoke in Nashiri's face, according to the report, and they used cigars.

Ohmygosh! It turns out that American interrogators CLEARLY stepped over the line with nasty, hideous and unauthorized interrogation techniques.
