“Means and Ends: Newly Published Notes of Bruce Jessen Reveal Real Purpose of Bush’s Torture Program”


http://valtinsblog.blogspot.com/2011/03/means-and-ends-newly-published-notes-of.html

Extracts:

“One of the primary reasons exploitation is used on prisoners is to produce false confessions. Indeed, it was the torture of Ibn al-Sheikh al-Libi that was used to provide the false intelligence about Saddam Hussein seeking nuclear materials that was to provide a major casus belli for the United States for their war with Iraq. “

“Up until now, the primary narrative surrounding the torture scandal has been about the purported efficacy of using torture to produce intelligence in the “war on terror.” But the new Jessen material demonstrates that the program used as the basis for the “reverse-engineering” of the SERE torture techniques was a full-blown exploitation program, whose aims went far beyond the mere elicitation of information, but included the physical and psychological pressures to produce absolute compliance in prisoners for the purpose of false confessions, show trials, recruitment of spies, and medical experimentation.”

“My end of the bargain was that I had to verbally repeat my story, agreeing with anything they added, even when they dictated my thoughts, beliefs and actions incorrectly. They also fed me things to say about other detainees as well. I did so obediently, even though I knew they were all lies.”

By the way, where are the so brave, non ordinary, “special” “compliance scientists” who proudly embraced “interrogations” and who knows whatever else?
Shouldn’t these powerful and righteous “all professionals” , all “scientists” be speaking about their achievements with pride?

George Bush did…

And since they are , or believe to be , “special” , non ordinary people and above all “having more power than Bush”, they should step up to their “values” and proudly take responsibility for their “scientific achievements”. Isn’t that how it should be?

Or are they, men and women, soooooo brave in the shadows but cowards in the light ?
