Time Magazine's Story on Interrogation at GITMO

Time has a big story on the interrogation of Mohammed al-Qahtani, the "20th" hijacker who tried, but failed, to get into the country to help Atta and his jihadi buddies kill 3,000 Americans on September 11th. You can link to some of the stories here and here.

Here is some detail on the interrogation techniques, with my commentary:

23 November 2002

0225: The detainee arrives at the interrogation booth a Camp X-Ray. His hood is removed and he is bolted to the floor. SGT A and SGT R are the interrogators. A DoD linguist and MAJ L (BSCT) are present

Sounds good so far. Bolted to the floor -- he won't be a threat.

0235: Session begins. The detainee refuses to look at SGT A "due to his religion. This is a rapport building session.

0240:Detainee states he's on hunger strike. SGT A explains the affects of a hunger strike on the body. SGT A runs "love of brothers in Cuba" approach.

0320:The detainee refused to answer whether he wanted water. SGT R explained with emphasis that not answering disrespects SGT A and embarrasses him. The detainee said no, he didn't want water. The detainee continues to say he's on hunger strike.

I don't like this detainee already. He has a bad attitude. Someone call in Sipowitz.

0345: The detainee dozed off during a break. SGT R woke him up.

0355: SGT R wakes up detainee again.

0450: Interrogators take a break. Detainee goes to the bathroom

0520: Interrogations resumes. The detainee refuses food and water.

0540: SGT A begins 9/11 theme. The detainee asks to pray and is refused.

0550: Detainee drinks __ bottle of water and states after this he is on strike, he refuses food.

"Just one more slice of peperoni pizza and that's it -- I'm on a hunger strike."

13 December 2002

1115:Interrogators began telling detainee how ungrateful and grumpy he was. In order to escalate the detainee's emotions, a mask was made from an MRE box with a smily face on it and placed on the detainee's head for a few moments. A latex glove was inflated and labeled the "sissy slap" glove. The glove was touched to the detainee's face periodically after explaining the terminology to him. The mask was placed back on the detainee's head. While wearing the mask, the team began dance instruction with the detainee. The detainee became agitated and began shouting.

There is no mention of music here. How can there be dancing without music? Also, I am going to make one of these "sissy slap" gloves and next time Sip orders a swirlee -- look out!

20 December 2002

1115:Detainee offered water—refused. Corpsman changed ankle bandages to prevent chafing. Interrogater began by reminding the detainee about the lessons in respect and how the detainee had disrespected the interrogators. Told detainee that a dog is held in higher esteem because dogs know right from wrong and know how to protect innocent people from bad people. Began teaching the detainee lessons such as stay, come, and bark to elevate his social status up to that of a dog. Detainee became very agitated.

Are the liberals in the audience good and agitated? Good. This is exactly how I want the murderers of September 11th treated. Like vermin. How would you want Mohammed Atta treated? Now.... STAY. Before I hit you withthe sissy slap glove.

There is much more in the story. Including how we tell this guy he is worse off than a stinking rat, because rats have freedom and some capacity to enjoy love -- but he will have none. I know, this is really, really mean stuff. But you know what? We broke him. We broke him physically, emotionally and psychologically. And we have the information we need to roll up some more human garbage like him and repeat this process over and over again until we have killed or captured every single one of them.

The lesson has to be clear: don't mess with America. Instead of self-flagelating ourselves over GITMO, we should be saying -- that's exactly what you are going to get too, jihadi boy, if you mess with the United States.

I could get upset when reading this account, but frankly, I think more about the people these guys killed -- and are continuing to kill. I'll save my outrage for the next time this guy's buddies cut off some innocent contractor's head.

It is clearly evident the difference between this actual interrogation effort and barracks hijinks. This is the type of stuff that is clearly effective -- as at one point later on, this guy is found naked on the floor pulling his own hair out. The guys doing the naked pyramids, you just aren't going to get results like this.

Final point -- I am kinda hopeful that Halliburton made some money on this deal, at least on the hood, bolts and chains.
