    Detainee Tortured, Says U.S. Official


    Trial Overseer Cites 'Abusive' Methods Against 9/11 Suspect

    By Bob Woodward
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Wednesday, January 14, 2009

    The top Bush administration official in charge of deciding whether to bring Guantanamo Bay detainees to trial has concluded that the U.S. military tortured a Saudi national who allegedly planned to participate in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, interrogating him with techniques that included sustained isolation, sleep deprivation, nudity and prolonged exposure to cold, leaving him in a "life-threatening condition."

    "We tortured [Mohammed al-]Qahtani," said Susan J. Crawford, in her first interview since being named convening authority of military commissions by Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates in February 2007. "His treatment met the legal definition of torture. And that's why I did not refer the case" for prosecution.

    They call waterboarding torture???

    Torture to me is pulling out fingernails, toenails, wiring someones genitals up to a battery. Hanging them from a ceiling and beating the shit out of em with barbed wire. Thats torture. Waterboarding, not even close. Not even close when you compare it to what these dirtbag terrorist do to people they capture. No wonder the terrorists think we are weak. We can't hold a candle to them in the torture dept.

    California Girl as much as you complain about people using color in their posts.

    I think you may be afflicted with Chromatophobia (fear of colors) and need to seek psychological help. :cool:

    Khalid Mohammed's confession was coerced! He was tortured! Cut him loose! IF the turban don't fit, you must acquit!

    It's kind of pathetic that you think we are all incapable of reading and comprehending without your silly 'red pen'. In fact, it makes some of us less likely to read it. Idiot.
