Christina Aguilera music was used to make the terrorist talk, but use of a "wet towel" was ruled out. Oh man...this is very strange!





Rumsfeld balked at included “use of a wet towel or dripping water to induce the misperception of suffocation.” “Our Armed Forces are trained,” a Pentagon memo on the changes read, “to a standard of interrogation that reflects a tradition of restraint.” Nevertheless, the log shows that interrogators poured bottles of water on al-Qahtani’s head when he refused to drink. Interrogators called this game “Drink Water or Wear It.”





Playing Christina Aguilera Music: After the new measures are approved, the mood in al-Qahtani’s interrogation booth changes dramatically.

Hey, I'd admit to just about anything if I were forced to listen to Aguilera. Put on N*Sync or Britney and I was the second gunman on the grassy knoll; screw the fact that I was born almost 30 years after the fact, I was there...

Shoot Now this is something that Amnesty International should investigate to the fullest. All those involved in this incident should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!
How dare they impose such horrendous torture on these people!!!
This is worst than electro-shock therapy!

I'm shocked that this is going on at Gitmo. It's really as though the US cannot stop shooting itself in the foot with international related events. Taking away the fact that it is on prisoners who are also entiltled to rights, it is kind of comical that they are using music that sucked upon release. In the big scheme of things, it's not all that surprising because the US has stated upon different occasions that we are not at war with the terrorists and because of that, they are not protected under the Geneva Convention. Politics at it's finest i guess.

Am I missing something what wrong with playing music to make prisoners talk or pouring water on them?. Is everything we do to harsh? Or barbaric? I personally would listen to music while soaked rather than get beaten.

This is actually kind of funny
. I mean i have never thought much of augilerea's music but i certainly dont consider it torture.
. Our interrogation methods are so restrained its a wonder they just dont laugh at us.

Right on!! They aren't even covered by the Geneva Convention so you could do anything to them!! Hey, I know! Let's ship them off to some countries where torture hasn't been outlawed! That will show the cry-babies!

Oh hang on.......you already do that.....doh!

Classic diffusion of severity campaign. Got caught being naughty the handiest thing to do is say "Well at least we are not as bad as Country X"!!!! Detail the most trivial offences, gloss over the juicy ones and off you go, scot-free...

You could be bathing them in champagne and feeding them caviar and you would still be wrong.

Assuming that the log is accurate.........that's nothing. I could do that standing on my head.

Read the book 'The Men Who Stare At Goats'

It's about the US armies physcological methods of war and 'non-violent' torture methods.

This seems like part of the same program. It's got nothing to do with the song they play, don't let that fool you into believing it's funny or not that bad.

One method of water and music 'reditioning' was to blind fold the person, put them in a big empty water tank like you see on farms so they can't get out and have no corners to retreat too and then they'd blast music at extreem levels for 24 hours or longer. 1 song on repeat. Some of the songs were like this Christina song, some were just flatout annoying songs like the Barney dinosaur singing. When the person would fall alseep or start to nod off or complain etc, they'd hose them down or wet them while they were in their tank which would make them tired, cold and sick as they night got cooler.

They repeat this until the person is broken, mad or ready to tell them what ever they want. Again, they break the persons mind and spirit until they have no choice but dying or confessing. The information can be as worthless as the info you got off the guy with a battery wired to his nuts.

On a side note, some songwriters were demanding that the US army pay royalties for using their songs for rendition purposes. Talk about profiting off war. How about demanding via law that they DON'T have permission to use your song?

But were not doing anything we want to them, like someone said its a wonder the terrorists don't just laugh at our techniques. We even give them their Koran, were not required to do that but we do it anyway.
And the bit about shipping them off is called returning them to their home countries, you don't want us to keep the terrorist yet you don't want us to release them to the authorities of their countries?

It just goes to show how wrong the liberals are, when they compare forced Christina Aguilera music to "the Nazis" it is a slap in the face to all who suffered under Hitler and the evil Nazi party...

Making the prisoners listen to her music is nothing more then mental cruelty.

Now if they have to watch her video's, then it's crossed the line into torture.


Besides, they have to get the teknique perfected so that when they begin using them on the american citizens there will be no learning curve. The efficiancy of the NWO is something to behold.

Its simple physco-warfare.
Since the US see's these men and women as enemy they will use phys-warfare on them, most effective weapon on or off the battlefield.
