A terror suspect from Australia held by the US for some 40 months claims that, at every stage of his detainment, he endured both physical and psychological abuse.

SYDNEY, Australia, Feb. 12 - Mamdouh Habib still has a bruise on his lower back. He says it is a sign of the beatings he endured in a prison in Egypt. Interrogators there put out cigarettes on his chest, he says, and he lifts his shirt to show the marks. He says he got the dark spot on his forehead when Americans hit his head against the floor at the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.


After being arrested in Pakistan in the weeks after Sept. 11, 2001, he was held as a terror suspect by the Americans for 40 months. Back home now, Mr. Habib alleges that at every step of his detention - from Pakistan, to Egypt, to Afghanistan, to Guantánamo - he endured physical and psychological abuse.

If Mr. Habib, the detainee is actually telling the truth, it is an outrage. From being shocked to having blood from an American women thrown on his face, how can we accept this kind of brutality from America's Militant, Political attache? What gives credibility to Mr. Habib's case is that in 2002 the Australian Government issued a public statement saying he was being held by the Americans. After reading it, my NWO suspicions just got more fuel in the direction that it is a very real socio/political phenomena: scarey.
