LONDON (AFP) — A Yemeni national accused American secret agents of subjecting him to various forms of torture during nearly three years of CIA detention, in a statement released by Amnesty International Friday.
Al-Maqtari described one occasion when he was beaten by three men and then made to stand naked on a chair in front of an air conditioner while holding up a large bottle of water.
During this time, he was periodically doused in water, making him feel so cold he had trouble standing.
In Afghanistan, Al-Maqtari was again subjected to torture, including prolonged isolation, sleep deprivation, exposure to extreme heat and cold, and sensory deprivation with bright lighting and loud music or sounds channeled into his cell, among other forms of ill-treatment, it said.

And this is only the stuff we hear about. Think about how many thousands in South America have been treated this way after decades of CIA involvement in porxy wars and outright interventions.
