Probe details Guantanamo humiliations

"WASHINGTON -- The interrogations went on for up to 20 hours a day, day after day. The prisoner was told his mother and sisters were whores. He was forced to wear a bra and put a thong on his head. At one point, an interrogator tied a leash to him and forced him to conduct a series of dog tricks.

It all took place at the U.S. detention centre in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in an effort to get suspected al-Qaeda member Mohamed al-Kahtani to co-operate with his interrogators.

Military investigators appointed to look into allegations of abuse at Guantanamo provided to a U.S. Senate committee graphic detail yesterday of the "creative interrogation techniques" used to soften up enemy combatants at the prison that has been subject of sharp criticism by human rights advocates.

The senators were told how Mr. al-Kahtani, a Saudi, was captured in December of 2001 on the Afghan-Pakistani border after the collapse of the Taliban regime. It was later discovered he had tried to enter the United States to take part in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks but had been refused entry at the airport in Orlando.


Way, back, in the 80's I had Army training in order to teach us how to withstand POW interrogation. The intructors pulled out the stops to get us to break. We were kept up for THREE days. Fed only sparingly, and made to do things that would today cause a congressional investigation. It wasn't any fun, but it was necessary and designed to help us withstand enemy coercion.

Nothing I have seen so far at Gitmo or at Abu Grab even remotely compares to what I experienced, and that was NOT torture.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
