12/13/14: Bark like a dog

This newly released report details CIA torture tactics that are now public. It's horrible.

A new report describes detainees chained to the floor and left without water or food for 24 hours or more who had urinated or defecated on themselves. Tactics included sleep deprivation, forced shaving, "Invasion of Space by a Female", and forcing a detainee to bark like a dog.

Other incidents include mock executions, revving a power drill while a detainee stood naked and hooded and forcing detainees to inhale smoke until they vomited.

The land of the free is a torture machine. For your listening reference, see the song SMF.

"ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Senate Intelligence Committee will soon release key sections of its report on the Central Intelligence Agency’s detention and interrogation of terrorism suspects after 9/11. In remarks on Friday anticipating the report’s release, which he has publicly supported, President Obama acknowledged that “we tortured some folks.”"

Here's a video that summarizes the importance of disclosing what's been done:
