Far from being an ABC exclusive, this one is all over the internet. For instance, seeÂ this website devoted to torture in the UAE.
ThisÂ Â video features a member of one of the UAE’s royal family members torturing some poor guy.

I’m so sick and tired of people whining and complaining about US so called “torture”. Â It’s an excuse to pay no attention to the truly disgusting acts of torture committed all over the world everyday. Â Leftists falsely claim some moral high ground which is really nothing more thana Â political straw issue to demonize the US. Â If they really cared, they would actually speak out about the REAL torturers.
Peter Moore and his four guards wereÂ abducted from a Finance Ministry building in Baghdad in May 2007 by up to 100 men in Iraqi security force uniform, driving police vehicles. What ensued was 31 months of REAL torture.
Peter Moore toldÂ The Times that he was hung by his arms from a door as a punishment and doused in water by his captors. Speaking in detail for the first time since his release, he also told of a series of mock executions.
At one point, guards put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger, simultaneously firing a real round from another weapon. “I remember thinking: I’m dead. It’s not that bad. It’s not that painful. And then, reality check, hold on I’m handcuffed and still blindfolded. I can hear people laughing.”
The IT worker, who had been in Baghdad a matter of weeks when he was kidnapped, said he feared that he would die from illness after suffering severe diarrhoea and vomiting as he spent months shackled to a metal grille over a window. To kill time and to maintain his sanity during more than 31 months as a hostage, he counted dots on a curtain and invented a wife during hours of interrogation.
At the lowest point, Mr Moore was chained up in a small room with four guards in a house he believed was in Basra. “They handcuffed me behind my back, stood me on a chair next to a door, put my hands over the top of the door, pulled down on the handcuffs and kicked the chair away. That was quite painful,” he said.
