Stop Canadian Complicity in Torture: No more "shame" – SEXING TORTURE

Sexing in the “slow torture”, “no-touch”: The torturer’s psyche and “protected umpunity”

“… But stripping is also sexually laden. It transposes sexual gestures, acts and innuendo from a strip club to the torture chamber. Thus sex is always present in the torture chamber whether the victim is a man or a woman. The sexing of torture is deeply grounded in the recesses of the torturer’s psyche.

Marnia Lazreg, Torture and the Twilight of Empire: From Algeria to Baghdad

“From 1950 to 1962, the CIA became involved in torture through a massive mind-control effort, with psychological warfare and secret research into human consciousness that reached a cost of a billion dollars annually – a veritable Manhattan Project of the mind.” This research produced “a new approach to torture that was psychological, not physical, perhaps best described as ‘no-touch torture.’“ It has also been referred to as “slow torture”.

Alfred McCoy – “A Question Of Torture: CIA Interrogation, From the Cold War To the War On Terror

Sexing torture in the “stealth, “slow”, “non touch” American Torture” hits the news and “SO WHAT?”

As torture, event after event, seems to be an integral part of American standard operating procedures and obviously goes unpunished in the United States, except for cases involving “few bad apples”, an article on the “slow torture” of 22 year-old man accused of leaking documents:

The National Shame of the US Military’s ‘Slow Torture’ of Bradley Manning

by John Grant – March 5 2011

http://www.thiscantbehappening.net/node/494

“… All right! Enough of the PR-flak Orwellian crap. Everyone with a modicum of sense knows why the Quantico jailers are stripping Bradley Manning. They are stripping him because they have the power to strip him and they want to strip him. And they know that the majority of Americans and the mainstream press don’t give a damn what happens to this young man.

A friend asked me, “Why don’t they just water-board him?” It’s simple: They would if they could, but they can’t. Manning is an American and he has advocates. They can’t get away with the sorts of torture we used in the past in places like the Philippines and Vietnam and that the French used during their war in Algeria. The French experience is broken down and analyzed by Marna Lazreg in her book cited above based on archival research, diaries and interviews with torturers.

But do not fear: Our very resourceful and secret CIA learned from the French and, over the years with your tax dollars, added their own research on the topic. Here’s Alfred McCoy from his great book A Question Of Torture: CIA Interrogation, From the Cold War To the War On Terror:…”
