Scappleface reports that serious consideration is being given to subjecting detainees to the worst possible ordeal.
According a newly-leaked top-secret document published in The New York Times â€˜Classifiedâ€™ section today, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has employed controversial methods to extract information from terror suspects, including threats to put the detainee in front of a Senate committee for further interrogation.
If true, it means that U.S. agents may be using a technique â€œtantamount to torture,â€ an unnamed source told the Times.
â€œIâ€™ve seen those Senate hearings on TV,â€ the source said. â€œIâ€™d rather be waterboarded, slapped about the head and assaulted with high-volume Britney Spears music while confined to a meat locker.â€
President Bush refused to confirm or deny the new allegations, saying only: â€œWe use humane methods that have proven fruitful for gathering intelligence. So, that donâ€™t make any sense.â€
Mr. Bush added that if, in the future, the U.S. did decide to subject terror suspects to Senate hearings, â€œat least no one would accuse us of using sleep deprivation.â€
