The Mystery of Abu Ghraib

The Abu Ghraib outrages conjure a sense of dj vu: where have we seen these kinds of methods employed before? The Palestinians have had to endure much the same thing. The interrogation techniques employed by the Abu Ghraib gang bear a striking resemblance to those employed by Israel, according to Amnesty International:

"Israel allows the use of 'moderate physical pressure' which is defined in detail in secret guidelines during interrogations. This includes sleep deprivation for prolonged periods while being tied in painful positions, hooding with filthy sacks, being forced to squat like a frog for hours and violent shaking (which has caused the death of one detainee)."

CACI's links to Israel are well-documented. CACI CEO J.P. "Jack" London was awarded the Albert Einstein Technology Award by the Jerusalem Fund of Aish HaTorah, presented by Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz this January. CACI's website crowed:

"CACI was honored as a provider of information technologies for helping to fight the war on terrorism and transform the Middle East from a source of global instability into a peaceful, stable region."

Great, just look at WHO is providing assistance to the US military
when it comes to handling "prisoners". I'm getting sick and tired of
this crap! :mad:

1. I would not know where to find this but.....
Did not the service or who ever picks up people talk about sending then back to countries that may do things to them to get information that we would never do? I swear I read that on this PC.
