Obama admin uncovers the most heinous CIA interrogation tactic under Bush/Cheney watch.......SECONDHAND SMOKE used against islamic terrorist murdererhttp://www.cnsnews.com/commentary/article/53088
Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, according to the 9-11 commission report, was the mastermind of the Oct. 12, 2000, attack on the U.S.S. Cole that killed 17 U.S. sailors.
Nashiri was also the target of an "unauthorized" CIA interrogation technique (that had not been legally vetted by the Justice Department) that is described in a May 7, 2004, CIA inspector general's report that was partially declassified by the Obama administration this week.
CIA officers blew smoke in Nashiri's face, according to the report, and they used cigars.
The IG's office described this smoke-blowing as one of several "unauthorized or undocumented techniques" it discovered had been used in isolated incidents by CIA employees interrogating high-level al-Qaida terrorists.
"An Agency (redacted phrase) interrogator admitted that, in December 2002, he and another (redacted phrase) smoked cigars and blew cigar smoke in al-Nashiri's face during the interrogation," said the IG report.
Secondhand smoke purposely blown into the face of an islamic terrorist murderer? Please dear God say it ain't so, how could U.S military intelligence be so cruel!
It's no wonder the Obama White House has directed Eric Holder to open an investigation. CTA has even heard rumor that some of these terrorist detainees were denied whipped cream for their mocha lattes......oh, the inhumanity of it all.
We can only hope that Daniel Pearl and Nick Berg were not subjected to anything as inhumane as the aforementioned "torture" Democrats now decry.
