The Jerusalem Post is reporting that "Dr. Sondra S. Crosby appeared in court to condemn the rectal feeding torture method used by the United State’s CIA in Guantanamo Bay. Crosby appeared in court for the trial of Abd Al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who is accused of participating in the planning of the bombing of the USS Cole. His lawyers are claiming that any confessions he made were under the duress of torture."
"Mr. Nashiri claims that in 2013, prison staff used ‘rectal feeding’ to torture him. Dr Crosby testified that he experienced it as a violent rape, sexual assault and that the experience “was a very, very distressing painful, shameful stigmatizing event according to The New York Times.
Mr. Nashiri also claims that he had been sodomized by the end of a broom by prison staff."
"At the time, the CIA defended rectal feeding as a ‘medical procedure’, according to the Times.
However, Physicians for Human Righs condemned the practice as sexual assault masquerading as medical treatment.” The group of medical practitioners said that there are oral and intravenous alternatives, which is why rectal feeding is not used in a medical context."
"Crosby explained that rectal feeding is a method in which CIA prison staff would take a tube, designed to be placed in the windpipe, and place it in a prisoner’s anus. Then, the staff would use a syringe to inject a nutritional shake into the anus.
Dawn reported that "They left the tube in for an additional 30 minutes ‘to aid in colonic absorption’,” Dr Crosby said, dismissing the procedure as bogus. The liquid nutritional supplement would have acted just like an enema, and it would have been expelled”.
Rectal feeding is bogus and sodomizing with a broomstick is deranged.
This brings us back to torture and civil liberty. Torture is never acceptable under any circumstances. Especially by the CIA who have a long history of drug trafficking and false flag attacks. Guantanamo Bay is an abomination. So are all the CIA black prison sites around the world. This is how the CIA violates the US Constitution. They claim that as long as the site is not on American soil, it is not covered by the Constitution. That is a lie.
It's also a slippery slope because they also have black prison sites in the US when they are not authorized to operate in the US. Everything they say is a lie and they have absolutely no public accountability whatsoever.
The BBC is reporting that "US President Joe Biden says he hopes to close the facility, where 32 people are still being detained. At its peak in 2003 the facility held 680 prisoners at one time."
Biden should close it down. Obama was supposed to but never did.
Obama dropped more bombs in Afghanistan that anyone else. Afghanistan wasn't about terrorism. It was about control of opium and the oil pipeline. The Texas oil barons were wining and dining the Taliban trying to win the contract for the pipeline. As soon as they awarded the pipeline to an Argentina firm they were invaded. The Taliban had brought opium production to a grinding halt. After the invasion, Afghanistan returned to being the largest opium producers in the world.
This puts the torture of suspected terrorists in a completely different light and reinforces the need for due process and the right to a fair trial.
Omar Khadr was 15 years old when he was accused of throwing a grenade at invading forces. If he threw it at the Russians when they invaded, he would have been a hero for defending his country against a foreign invasion. Instead he was tortured at Guantanamo Bay.
The Constitution is a vital document and the CIA is constantly trying to undermine it. The CIA does not support the founding father's quest.
El Salvador is making mass arrests of suspected MS 13 members and everyone sees this as a good thing. Mass prisons are never a good thing. What if they were anti vaxxers or lockdown protesters? It's like the former president of the Philippians who encouraged people to shoot suspected drug dealers dead.
What's to stop somebody from robbing someone and shooting them only to later falsely claim they were a drug dealer?
What's to stop a politician from shooting a political rival then falsely accusing them of being a drug dealer? There is a reason we have and support due process. It's to prevent dictatorships and the abuse of power.
Why the CIA is on the wrong side and how they got there
