Sgt. Erik Saar, former U.S. Army translator, told 60 minute news that interrogations were faked in order to give visiting politicians and generals the illusion that intelligence was being gathered at the prison.

Authorities at Guantanamo Bay staged interrogations of detainees for visiting politicians and generals to give the impression that valuable intelligence was regularly being gathered, according to a former Army translator at the camp.

Former Army Sgt. Erik Saar told CBS television show 60 Minutes that he believes "only a few dozen" of the 600 detainees at the camp were terrorists and that little information was obtained from them.

"Interrogations were set up so the VIPs could come and witness an interrogation ... a mock interrogation, basically," Saar told the program, to air on Sunday.

"They would find a detainee that they knew to have been cooperative. They would ask the interrogator to go back over the same information," he said, calling it "a fictitious world" created for the visitors

Just a little more icing on the cake of the prisoner crisis emerging out of Abu Gharib and Guantanamo. It seems like every week something more shocking than before occurs at these facilities which in turn is not helping Americas image on the War in Iraq. However on the scale of scandals, fake interrogations seem to pale in comparison to other methods of deception used within this prisons as well as the war.

You know the way this news comes out in dribbles is probably the only thing stopping a full scale revolt in this country. The average person doesn't have time to wade through it all and connect all the dots. You have an illusion that the government isn't hiding things when there's so many negative reports in the media, but it's really being hidden through information overload.

Very soon the entire country is going to be sitting around saying "doh...!"

Exactly. The information comes in pieces that are fragmented enough to not cause concern. But as far as one person connecting the puzzle, leave that up to David Icke.

Here is some new info that arised as of today regarding this subject:



Interrogations faked at Guantanamo, witness says
U.S. Southern Command spokesman Col. David McWilliams said the military allows visiting politicians and others who need to understand the process to view interrogations but insisted, "We do not stage interrogations for VIP visits."

Saar also recalled interrogation techniques he witnessed at Guantanamo, including one previously reported incident where a female officer behaved in an overtly sexual fashion while interrogating a devout Muslim, at one point smearing ink which she told the detainee was her menstrual blood on his face.

McWilliams declined to comment on that claim, saying it was similar to another incident detailed in leaked FBI memos that are the subject of a military investigation.

I watched Cspan not that long ago and it had one of the top generals incharge of abu gharib. Yet she wasn't only the ranking officer of that institution, but many others. She later found out that her closest advisers were hiding papers signed by some of Bush's administrators giving the right to use perverted acts. Not only that but she was told to visit on certain days, and those days were used for false interrorgation.

Threats against civilians were also probably used very strictly.
For the fact that when she talked with some of the prisoners they claimed everything was okay. Claimed they where being treated humanly.

I think it is suitable to draw parallels between this and the videos that the Nazi’s sent out during WW2, showing how nice it was inside it was inside concentration camps; they had libraries and everything! Ok, to a lesser extent defiantly, but its worth taking as a mental note.

Free all Guantanamo prisoners! The war on terror is not working! Terrorist attacks have tripped in 2004! When will the Neo-Cons learn!? I say kill them all!

What in the world is this?...people talking about a full revolt in the US and others about killing Republicans....even if it was an attempt at a joke...it was a poor one...

Should we have a new crusade against all Muslims, moderates and radicals alike for what the millions of radicals are doing all around the world?....

BTW, do inform yourself a bit about what European countries have been saying lately about terrorism and since when they have been having so many attacks and attempts by radical Muslims.... i actually gave quite a few links in another thread about this...

Here is the link if you want to inform yourself a bit on what European authorities are saying lately about the war on terror....

David Icke actually is the most intricate research in conspiracy theories to date. Despite his reptilian agenda research, (which im still sitting on the fence about) Icke throughly sites his claims through multiple sources. Icke doesn't get the credit that he deserves.

Most people look at his theories in disbelief simply because they overheard that he's some 'looney' in a conversation without giving the man the benefit of the doubt. If you think he's a nut, don't take someone elses word for it, go pick up a book and read what the man has to say. I thought David Icke was full of crud when I first heard about his reptilian theories so I picked up his 'Alice in wonderland...etc' book and after completing it twice my perception on Icke changed dramatically.
