Don’t read this anytime close to a dinner, you won’t have an appetite for quite some time;
Neely describes the arrival of detainees in full sensory-deprivation garb, he details their sexual abuse by medical personnel, torture by other medical personnel, brutal beatings out of frustration, fear, and retribution, the first hunger strike and its causes, torturous shackling, positional torture, interference with religious practices and beliefs, verbal abuse, restriction of recreation, the behavior of mentally ill detainees, an isolation regime that was put in place for child-detainees, and his conversations with prisoners David Hicks and Rhuhel Ahmed.
it gets worse, notice my italics and then bold;
First, Neely and other guards had been trained to the U.S. military’s traditional application of the Geneva Convention rules. They were put under great pressure to get rough with the prisoners and to violate the standards they learned
that’s right, they were pressured to break the law, now look at how they thought they could get away with it;
Neely discusses at some length the notion of IRF (initial reaction force), a technique devised to brutalize or physically beat a detainee under the pretense that he required being physically subdued. The IRF approach was devised to use a perceived legal loophole in the prohibition on torture. Neely’s testimony makes clear that IRF was understood by everyone, including the prison guards who applied it, as a subterfuge for beating and mistreating prisoners—and that it had nothing to do with the need to preserve discipline and order in the prison.
someone tell me again how they think these guys are "heroes"
He describes body searches undertaken for no legitimate security purpose, simply to sexually invade and humiliate the prisoners. This was a standardized Bush Administration tactic
you’re reading that right,the bush administrations standardized "tactic" was sodomizing prisoners…with tools, you are gonna get sick when you read the depravity that follows;
The Bush White House vehemently objected to provisions of the law dealing with rape by instrumentality.
bush "vehemently objected" to laws that say he can’t sodomize anyone he wants with tools…this is one very sick man
it gets STILL worse;
When House negotiators pressed to know why, they were met first with silence and then an embarrassed acknowledgement that a key part of the Bush program included invasion of the bodies of prisoners in a way that might be deemed rape by instrumentality under existing federal and state criminal statutes
"might" consider rape?…MIGHT?
these maggots got a kick out of having prisoners sodomized, it was STANDARD practice!
