Meow Mix jingle, Rage Against the Machine & Tupac all used to torture CIA detainees
Last week's Senate CIA torture report exposed criminal activities at the highest levels of the U.S. government.
At least five detainees were subjected to “rectal feeding” or “rectal hydration” as a form of "behavior control." This is sexual assault sanctioned by the US government.
Other detainees were deprived of sleep for 180 hours. Some - while physically abused - were forced to walk around naked & hooded with their hands shackled above their heads. At one facility, detainees were kept in total darkness and shackled in cells with loud noise or music. Back in 2008, author Andy Worthington investigated the use of music in military torture. Rage Against the Machine's music was on the CIA's torture playlist and Tom Morello has a proposal worthy of consideration:
"I suggest that they level Guantánamo Bay, but they keep one small cell and they put Bush in there … and they blast some Rage Against the Machine.”
"Five Deferments Dick" aka former Vice President Dick Cheney continues to defend torture, always there to remind us that he's the worst. Watch:
