Memos shed light on CIA use of sleep deprivation torture


rinf.com

As President Obama prepared last month to release secret memos on the CIA’s use of severe interrogation methods, the White House fielded a flurry of last-minute appeals.

One came from former CIA Director Michael V. Hayden, who expressed disbelief that the administration was prepared to expose methods it might later decide it needed.

“Are you telling me that under all conditions of threat, you will never interfere with the sleep cycle of a detainee?” Hayden asked a top White House official, according to sources familiar with the exchange.

Sleep deprivation, waterboarding, all these tactics the CIA will still use even after the memos have been made public. This is because the detainees dont have any human rights is what CIA believes (believe it or not !)

Even if the tactic is banned, there is no way of verifying if it has indeed been stopped from being used. Detainees may still accuse the CIA of using it.

I believe that if we don't understand the evil we are doing, we are reincarnated to experience that evil ourselves, in order to help us understand.

And if we don't understand the evil others do, and fill our hearts with negativity over it, we will come back to experience lives like those of the people who have hurt or angered us.

What representatives of a country do is the moral responsibility of every citizen who allows it to happen by shutting their eyes, justifying it or simply not doing what they can to fight it.
