Memo details Bush era torture method

Sun, 10 May 2009 04:25:01 GMT

More than 25 of the CIA’s terror suspects were subjected to sleep deprivation during the Bush administration.

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has practiced sleep deprivation to more than 25 terror suspects during the Bush administration, a report says.

The Justice Department memos released last month showed that at one point, the agency was allowed to keep prisoners awake for as long as 11 days, The Los Angeles Times reported late Saturday.

However, the limit was later reduced to just over a week, the paper said.

Sleep deprivation method, which the CIA fought hardest to keep, has been described as one of the most important elements in its interrogation program used to help break dozens of suspected terrorists.

The prisoners had their feet shackled to the floor and their hands cuffed close to their chins, said the report citing Justice Department memos.

Detainees were clad only in diapers and not allowed to feed themselves. A prisoner who started to drift off to sleep would tilt over and be caught by his chains.

When detainees could no longer stand, they could be laid on the prison floor with their limbs “anchored to a far point on the floor in such a manner that the arms cannot be bent or used for balance or comfort,” according to a May 10, 2005, memo.

A Red Cross report on the CIA program in 2007 said detainees’ wrists and ankles bore scars from their shackles.

President Barack Obama, who calls waterboarding, sleep deprivation and other coercive practices torture, prohibited the methods in January.

A task force however is reviewing the use of sleep deprivation along with other harsh interrogation methods the agency might employ in the future.

Because of its effectiveness — as well as the perception that it was less objectionable than waterboarding, head-slamming or forced nudity — sleep deprivation may be seen as a tempting technique to restore, The Times concluded.

If I was kept wake for a week (even probably 40 hours) I can well imagine myself admitting to ANYTHING. Including being the first man to walk of the surface of the Sun!

The filthy US crimes (and those who drive US foreign policy) continue with Barak Obama. The first ‘black’ man to be president of the United States, yet it’s umpteenth mass murderer.

As a mark of how bad things seem to have become, suddenly this (video below) seems like the level of some of the  justice that’s deserved. But such a thing would be a mercy compared to what awaits people like Obamessiah and his long lived apostate church.

Miliband in trouble over torture case

Dangerous torture advocate and jumped-up little prick UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband
A High Court has given the Foreign Office a week to defend its refusal to reveal evidence that a UK resident was tortured in Guantanamo.

Binyam Mohamed won a High Court ruling on Thursday that the government should disclose documents which could prove his innocence from the terror charges laid against him.

The Foreign Office called for an order banning the disclosure of the information although the court had said in the ruling that the evidence was ‘not only necessary but essential’ for Mohamed’s defense.

The court has given Foreign Secretary David Miliband until September 5 to reconsider its application for an order banning the disclosure of the evidence.

The Thursday ruling has shed new light on Britain’s secret cooperation with the US in the kidnap and torture of alleged terror suspects.


Mohamed says his confessions were obtained through torture.

The charity organization Reprieve, which has represented Mohamed in Guantanamo, said the ruling was ‘a momentous decision’ which came despite ‘the strong US desire that this information not be disclosed’.

In an email read out in court, a legal adviser to the US State Department had said that any further disclosure of information would cause ‘serious and lasting damage’ to security relations between Washington and London.

Mohamed’s solicitor Richard Stein said that the judgment reflected “the abhorrence of decent society at the methods employed by the United States government in the supposed ‘war on terror’.”

The 30-year-old Mohamed, an Ethiopian who came to Britain as an asylum seeker in 1994, says the documents reveal that his charges are based on confessions obtained through torture and ill-treatment.

Mohamed was arrested in Pakistan in 2002 and secretly moved to Morocco, where he says he was tortured during the 18 months he spent there.

He was then flown to an alleged CIA-run site in Afghanistan before being taken to Guantanamo Bay in 2004, where he has been awaiting trial.
