On Planet Irf, the Torture Never Stops…

Watching Olberdouche is also a form of torture. But for Yusuf, its all good old Islamo-prop, and he just can’t get enough of it:


The reality is, as usual, quite different:

What you’ll never see on Planet Irf:

• the twelve separate inquiries into the abuses alleged by critics and former detainees at Gitmo that found no evidence of those abuses taking place;
            • the revelation during the release earlier this year of the so-called “torture memos” that waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques had been applied to exactly three suspects in the course of eight years and had never been standard operating practice at Gitmo;
            • the evaluation by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point that 73 percent of Gitmo detainees were “a demonstrated threat” to Americans;
            • and, finally, the fact that the detention facility was created in the wake of a declaration by Congress in September 2001 that “all necessary and appropriate force” should be used “against those nations, organizations, or persons” [emphasis added] responsible for the attacks of September 11; 
            —one may be permitted to wonder why, exactly, the pressure to close the prison facility has been so intense and long-lasting.

  1. loved the cartoon…. reminded me of the scene from Borat when he and Asimov were wrestling in the hotel room …

  2. This is off topic – but here is a BBC story of a man who lost his son to a terrorist attack (i will note that it was a muslim terror attack but that is not relevant here) and is now working to get a fair deal for terror victims. In these times this is an uplifting story so I shall attach the web address. It is great to see this man fight back in such a positive way.
