Pop Torture

Muslims recently rioted all over the world when a Newsweek story reported that guards at Guantanamo Bay flushed a Koran down the toilet.

But I'm more frightened about the latest revelation from Gitmo. We may see wholesale Islamic insurrections around the world in the next few days. Seems the military has resorted to pop torture.

According to Time, an official military logbook from the prison camp documents a variety of inhumane treatments inflicted on Mohammed al-Qahtani, one of the prisoners there. Various congressional leaders, including some prominent Republicans, are outraged by the new information.

His interrogators forced Al-Qahtani to urinate in his pants and questioned him relentlessly for 20 hours a day.

But worst of all, "interogators began their sessions with al-Qahtani at midnight and awakened him with dripping water or Christina Aguilera music if he dozed off."

Rumors of flushing a Koran down the toilet or the use of Chinese water torture is one thing. But forcing someone to listen to Christina Aguilera?

How did it finally come to this?

They probably made them listen to Christina in preparation for a new reality show where Muslims get matched with [fill in the blank] and have to [fill in the blank] to pop music. Whoever doesn't [fill in the blank] gets kicked off. They are actually probably already secretly filming them and it will air on Fox over the summer to test the ratings.
