QUOTE
It was only through a Freedom of Information request that redacted files were released showing that Mohammed had been subjected to waterboarding interrogation 183 times, kept awake for seven days straight and had his family's lives threatened.

Defence lawyers are banned from passing documents in confidence to their clients or even discussing certain issues, funding is severely restricted and requests for additional counsel or experts refused. While the accused face the death penalty if convicted, they are likely to be detained indefinitely even if they are acquitted, a situation Capt Wright likened to torture.

"This is not a trial. It is an attempt to legitimise a death threat," he said. "It can never be fair to bring a man to the brink of death and back 183 times with waterboarding and then do it a final 184th time – but this time it will have full state sanction. The bottom line is, torture denies justice. If you believe fundamentally that America is better than that, then this is a struggle for the soul of America.

"I am concerned there has been this show game to try and find the best system in order to try and execute these men. I am deeply concerned by the prospect that theoretically, if anybody is tried and acquitted, the US government has the authority to continue to detain that person indefinitely."

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed: The torture details

Waterboarding involves drowning someone to the brink of death before interrogation.

With its history in the Spanish Inquisition, it involves strapping a detainee by their legs and arms to a board which is tipped head down. A cloth is placed over the mouth and nose while water is poured in at varying heights, giving the sensation of drowning. With a doctor present to prevent death, the detainee is subjected to around minute of pain and panic before being raised up and questioned. While information on his three-and-half-year detention in CIA custody is classified, certain redacted documents obtained through Freedom of Information requests confirm Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was waterboarded 183 times, kept awake for seven and a half days and subjected to authorised enhanced interrogation techniques. Human rights experts insist "enhanced" techniques include sleep deprivation, being subjected to extreme temperatures and having a towel placed around his neck before being thrown against a wall. Mr Mohammed was also subjected to unauthorised treatment like threats to the lives of his family.

Remember that this guy knew his assailants, knew that he could stop it at any time and that he would be leaving the room whenever he wanted. And that he wasn't subject to sensory deprivation techniques, abuse, humiliation, beatings and deprived of sleep for a week.




At what point do you think a "confession" was extracted? The 10th or 100th time? Why the excess other than brainwashing?

"9/11 mastermind"...

The Christopher Hitchens / Vanity Fair water boarding demonstration in the video above was not realistic.

The briefing he received beforehand should have been :-

"Did you mastermind the 9/11 attacks?, you may indicate yes at any stage by dropping the metal bars in your hands and we will stop the torture."

Water boarding was created to wash the brain.

If George W. Bush and Richard Cheney were to be tested…what would they admit too?

I think you'd need to use pure bleach!

Taken out of heir comfort zone those two would confess to anything. Just like KSM.

"Death eaters"

That phrase has stuck with me.

The US Federal government sure does have a lot of “master-minds”.

“W” #43 was never a good liar.

He already said we did it.

Let’s stop there!
