Torture Endangers the Soul of Our Nation
by Phillis Engelbert
On a recent, snowy afternoon I watched "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" with my son.
Near the end of the film came a scene in which Harry learned that his godfather, wrongly accused of murder, had been captured by prison guards called "dementors."   "Do you mean they're going to kill him?"   Harry asked his friend Hermione.   "No, it's worse, much worse," Hermione replied.  "They're going to suck out his soul."
I pondered Hermione's conclusion and found myself in agreement — that losing one's soul would be a fate worse than death.  After all, a person without a soul would be capable all sorts of heinous acts — for instance, torture.
Approved by the highest level of government
If one applies the same reasoning to a nation as to an individual, the implications are chilling.  For in the 9-11 era, torture has been approved by the highest levels of government, employed by military and intelligence agencies, and accepted by the public.
We have been told that the Geneva Conventions are a luxury we can no longer afford — that if we want to be safe, we must gather information by any means necessary.
The question of whether torture produces reliable information notwithstanding, we must ask: in trying to safeguard our lives, are we, as Americans, losing our collective soul?
Government going to operate on 'the dark side.'
Torture, while long an unspoken element of the CIA's repertoire, came into favor after 9-11.  Within one week of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Vice President Cheney stated on "Meet the Press" that the government was going to operate on "the dark side" and would "use any means at our disposal to achieve our objective."
Cofer Black, then the CIA official in charge of counter-terrorism, told the House and Senate Intelligence Committees in September 2002, "All you need to know is that there was a 'before 9/11' and there was an 'after 9/11.'  After 9/11, the gloves came off."
  According to top State Department officials, and reported by Jane Mayer in the New Yorker of February 14, the decision to suspend the Geneva Conventions — a decision based, in part, on the opinion of then White House counsel and now Attorney General Alberto Gonzales — was made by President Bush on January 8, 2002.
The disregard for human rights has had stark consequences for those caught in the "war on terror" web.  Suspects and material witnesses have been rounded up and held for months or years without criminal charge, legal representation or family contact.
Former detainees have described horrible treatment while in U.S. custody — or while being held by other nations (such as Egypt or Syria) after being transferred by U.S. authorities.
Suspending from doorframes by wrists, beatings with fists and objects, electrical shocks, dogs allowed to bite
Examples of mistreatment include stripping, blindfolding, suspending from doorframes by wrists, beatings with fists and objects, electrical shocks to genitals and other body parts, mock executions, sleep and sensory deprivation, sexual assault and humiliation, near-drowning, threatening with snarling dogs (or allowing dogs to bite), being forced to stand or kneel in painful positions, and being held in freezing conditions with light clothing.
These allegations have been corroborated by international human rights organizations.
An important consideration in any discussion of torture is whether it produces the desired result: useful information. Veteran intelligence officials insist that torture doesn't work — that tortured detainees will say anything to stop the mistreatment.
They assert that a detainee who is afforded due process and legal counsel is much more likely to cooperate and provide truthful information.
"Have any of these guys [advocates of easing torture restrictions] ever tried to talk to someone who's been deprived of his clothes?" asked ex-FBI agent Dan Coleman in The New Yorker.   "He's going to be ashamed, and humiliated, and cold.   He'll tell you anything you want to hear to get his clothes back.   There's no value in it."
We subject people to unimaginable pain — United States long the self-proclaimed global 'human-rights standard-bearer.'
The United States, long the self-proclaimed global human-rights standard-bearer, is now regularly cited by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch for gross violations.   We subject people, many of whom have no connection to terrorists, to unimaginable pain.
We claim to be fighting terror, but are terrorizing hundreds, if not thousands of people, in the process.
The only way to stop it, and hence reclaim our soul, is to refuse to allow torture to be committed in our name.
This month marks one year since the revelations of torture at Abu Ghraib.   It also marks two years since the start of the Iraq War.   On March 20 I'll be joining hundreds of other area residents in a march for peace and decency and to reclaim our national soul.

This video does not show torture.
It shows a Bush press conference segment,

Bush insists the problem lies not with TORTURE, but with the LAWS interpreting it.
He wants to justify a crime against humanity by making it LEGAL.

Thousands of Palestinians say they were tortured by Israel
Israeli lessons for the US in Iraq
By Khalid Amayreh in the West Bank
Friday 07 May 2004
The torturing of Iraqi prisoners at the Abu Ghuraib prison by US occupying forces has shocked the world — but for most Palestinians they come as no surprise.
In fact, tens of thousands of Palestinians who have served time in Israeli prisons and detention centres see striking similarities between Israeli treatment of Palestinian prisoners and American treatment of Iraqi detainees.
In some cases, the torture technique or form of mistreatment is almost identical, some former Palestinian prisoners told
Hisham Abd al-Razzaq is a Palestinian Authority minister in charge of overseeing and catering for more than 7000 Palestinian prisoners in Israel, many of them interned without charge or trial.
He believes that what the Americans are doing to the Iraqis amounts to a “carbon copy” of what the Israelis have been doing to the Palestinians.
“I am inclined to think that the Americans copied the Israeli techniques.   I can’t prove it in an objective manner, but the striking similarities are overwhelming.”
Abd al-Razzaq, who himself experienced many forms of torture during his lengthy imprisonment in an Israeli jail prior to the Oslo Accords in 1993, described physical and psychological torture as the “modus operandi” of Israeli treatment of Palestinian detainees.
Torture techniques
He said that the so-called hooding technique — whereby the detainee's head is covered with a rancid-smelling sack for weeks or months — was always “the first order of business” in Israeli interrogation centres.
“The hooding itself is not an interrogation method.  Its purpose is not to extract confessions from the suspect, but rather to demoralise him and destroy his mental balance.”
The hooding itself is not an interrogation method.   Its purpose is not to extract confessions from the suspect, but rather to demoralise him and destroy his mental balance
Hisham Abd al-Razzaq,
Palestinian Authority minister
Abd al-Razzaq said that the filthy sack that he too was forced to wear was made up of three or four layers to make sure that the suspect “breathes the least possible amount of oxygen, enough to keep him or her alive”.
In addition to the hooding, Israel, according to consistent reports by international human rights groups as well as testimonies by Palestinian detainees, continues to use harsh means of torture, both for extracting confessions and as a punishment for opposing the Israeli occupation.
These include, inter alia, brutal beating, (taltul) or violent shaking, forced-stripping, sleep deprivation (by playing extremely loud music inside a detainee’s cell), cold baths in winter, actual or threatened sexual abuse, as well as the notorious shabh technique whereby a suspect is tied tightly to a small chair, with his hands tied to his back, for weeks.
Similarity denied
Ofer Yisler, spokesman for the Israeli Prison Authority, vehemently denies any “similarity between our treatment of the Palestinians and what we have seen in Iraq”.
“There is no comparison whatsoever, what the Americans did in Iraq is something entirely different.”
But Yisler refused to comment on accusations that the hooding technique, the shabh, sleep deprivation and forced stripping were still being used by Israel.   Yisler ended the interview and refused to answer further questions, insisting that written questions be submitted to his office. <.font>
Palestinians say the US learned
its torture tactics from Israel
Yisler’s reluctance to speak, however, seems to underscore Israel’s desire to stay away from the international outcry over what happened in Iraq.
But Israeli-Arab Knesset member Talab al-Sanai says Israel is indirectly but heavily involved in “the systematic mistreatment of Iraqi people at the hands of the American occupation troops”.
Israeli experts
“It is not secret at all, there are many Israeli experts on torture in Iraq who are transferring to the Americans their accumulative experience of thirty seven years of torturing and mistreating Palestinians,” al-Sanai told
He said that American officers joined Israeli army units in Jenin several months ago for the purpose of learning Israeli methods and techniques of repressing civilians, which the Americans, he said, later applied in Iraq.
“It took Israel 37 years to develop and perfect these barbaric methods of repression and humiliation.   Surprisingly, the Americans surpassed and outmatched the Israelis in their savagery in less than two years.”
Al-Sanai condemned American behaviour in Iraq as “manifestly criminal”, dismissing claims by the Bush administration that the torture incidents were isolated.
“Here in Israel, it is an ugly occupation, and Israel doesn’t make any pretensions about it.   But in Iraq, the United States is murdering, humiliating, torturing and raping the Iraqis under the rubric of freedom and democracy:
“Perhaps this is what they really mean  when they talk about freedom and democracy: namely, liberating the Iraqis from their dignity.”
The object of torture is torture
George Orwell, 1984
In Argentina "transferal" referred to the process of taking a person from the Naval Mechanics' School in Buenos Aires known locally as ESMA.
In an earlier incarnation it was an officers' casino.
In its later incarnation it was one of the detention centers to which political dissidents, leaders of the opposition and those considered a threat to the military dictatorship were taken from March 1976 until the end of 1983.
Its name notwithstanding, it would only have been considered a "school" by those who consider the use of torture as a teaching device to educate people as to what they should say to the torturer.
According to a description by Larry Rohter of the New York Times, the building had a long hall the name of which had something in common with "transferal" and "rendition." Its name was a euphemism. It was called "Happiness Avenue."
There were no stores on Happiness Avenue as there are on some of the elegant avenues in Buenos Aires. There were just rooms in which acts of torture took place.
"Happiness Avenue" was not a one-way street. Once the authorities completed the torture, which could go on for extended periods, the victim was drugged and participated in what the Argentine navy called "transferal."
The victim was taken to the airport, placed in an airplane, flown over and then thrown into the ocean.
Drowning was much pleasanter than the activities on Happiness Avenue. It had an end.
The United States uses "rendition" which loosely translated means "we provide the body, you perform the torture."
"We" is the United States government in the guise of the CIA and "you" is the country to which those the soon-to-be-tortured are sent.
Those who participate in rendition are sent to countries where torture is an accepted way of extracting information.
That is not, however, why they are sent there.
According to a report in the New York Times prisoners are moved to other countries in order to help the United States with budgetary problems.
Administration officials have said that sending prisoners to Egypt, for example, is an alternative to the "costly, manpower-intensive process of housing them in the United States or in American-run facilities in other countries."
The fact that those countries engage in torture is nothing more than a coincidence.
Even though rendition is primarily a money saving device, a number of individuals were tortured following their rendition.
Maher Ara is a Canadian citizen who was arrested at Kennedy airport, transferred to and tortured in Syria before being released without being charged with a crime.
Khaled el-Masri was arrested on the Serbia-Macedonia border, held and tortured for five months and then released without being charged.
His captors told him it was a case of mistaken identity.
They meant to torture someone else with his name.
He was an incidental beneficiary of the torture rather than its intended target.
Christopher Brauchli is a lawyer in Boulder, Colorado. He can be reached through his website:
EU concealed deal with US to allow 'rendition' flights
The European Union secretly allowed the United States to use transit facilities on European soil to transport "criminals" in 2003, according to a previously unpublished document.
The revelation contradicts repeated EU denials that it knew of "rendition" flights by the CIA.
...Asked in Parliament last week about reports of 400 suspect flights passing through British airports, Tony Blair said: "In respect of airports, I don't know what you are referring to."
The minutes of the Athens meeting on January 22, 2003, were written by the then Greek presidency of the EU after the talks with a US delegation headed by a justice department official. EU officials confirmed that a full account was circulated to all member governments, and would have been sent to the Home Office.
...According to the full version, "Both sides agreed on areas where co-operation could be improved [inter alia] the exchange of data between border management services, increased use of European transit facilities to support the return of criminal/ inadmissible aliens, co-ordination with regard to false documents training and improving the co-operation in removals."
...But this section, and others referring to US policy, were deleted — as a "courtesy" to Washington, according to a spokesman for the EU Council of Ministers.

"We Weren't in Any Hurry to Call the Medics"
Bush's Herds: Ready to Kick Anyone in the Face
Rich elite of world gaining control of food so rich elite can profit from rise in price of food
R euters, March 7: "Soldiers depicted in the new video would not face criminal charges, the Pentagon said.  One section of the video showed a bound and wounded prisoner sprawled on the ground, and showed his bullet entry and exit wounds.  At one point, a US soldier kicked the prisoner in the face.  Army documents quoted a soldier at the scene as saying he 'thought the dude eventually died.  We weren't in any hurry to call the medics'."
Christians in America who applaud the murder of wounded prisoners
This is no surprise, because there are energetic Christians in America who applaud the murder of wounded prisoners.  They think it is wonderful to kill them.  They are proud that US soldiers kill helpless people.  Doubt me?  Read on.
Here is an email sent me following my piece in Counterpunch on March 7, from "Yours sincerely, Todd Hale, Senior Church Image Consultant ( and, who is one sick citizen, and wrote:
"You asked the question 'What was the reaction of most of the American people to the murder of a wounded, unarmed Iraqi lying helpless and barely conscious on the floor of a mosque in his own country?'
I think, based purely on the exit poll results of the recent Presidential election, re-affirming the current administration's stance on the war on terror, including Iraq, that most of the Americans, or at least 65 some odd million of them again based on the election results would be like mine; "Sucks to be him, he should not be fighting for an evil regime like Saddam Husseins, that aids and supports terrorists and has killed thousands of his own people with chemical weapons, and if said man does fight for Saddam, he risks death, even if he's wounded and lying on the floor of his mosque.  I only hope that someone shared the good news of the saving grace of Jesus Christ with him before he died.  You asked.  May God Bless your liberally challenged mind!"  [Emphasis in original.]
Let us all take a deep breath after these kindly words from a devout Christian and consider the rest of the Reuters' report:
"Army criminal investigators looked into the matter and decided no criminal charges were warranted against the soldiers.  Documents showed that the Army deemed the actions shown on the video "inappropriate" rather than criminal.  'It didn't rise to the level of criminal abuse, according to the investigations,' said LtCol Jeremy Martin, an Army spokesman at the Pentagon.  'Clearly, the soldiers probably exercised poor judgment . . . and I'm sure that they were admonished by their command for their actions'."
US military thug
Sure; the world can be certain that "their command" took disciplinary action.  Like issuing a bag of cookies and ten days' leave.  It is incredible to be told that a soldier who kicked a wounded prisoner was considered to have "exercised poor judgment".
The US military thug — for he cannot be dignified by the name of 'soldier'— kicked a helpless man in the face, but Lt. Col. Jeremy Martin, US Army, then spits in the faces of all of us when he says that the kicking "didn't rise [he meant, presumably, 'descend'] to the level of criminal abuse".
LtCol Jeremy Martin should go join Mr Todd Hale, the equally caring Senior Church Image Consultant, because they would have a lot to agree about.
LtCol Jeremy Martin of the Pentagon has no conscience.  He is a robot, poor fellow.  He is doing his duty as he sees it, of course, in the same fashion as the Army face-kickers and the Guantanamo Bay torturers and the Marine who murdered the unarmed, wounded prisoner lying semi-conscious on the floor of a mosque in Iraq last November, to the approval of millions of Americans.
He is a performing puppet, an unthinking, manipulated, rag-doll-in-uniform who does his best to please his masters, like countless other grey people for whom individual thought is a terrifying concept.
Big problem for America
And this is the big problem for America.  It is the little people, the Jeremy Martins of the uniformed brothers and the Todd Hales of the church brothers, who lead the populace in endorsing and actively supporting evil.
They are just folks like other folks, of course.
They live down the street or on the next block and they have 1.7 kids, an SUV and a couple of bicycles, a liking for the local baseball team, clean living and Church cookouts, and a deep and terrible ignorance of humanity, history, and tolerance.
Nazi Germany
Does anyone read William Shirer's ' Berlin Diary: Journal of a Foreign Correspondent ' nowadays?  He was a gifted American reporter who described life in Nazi Germany from 1934 through 1941 (and in 1959 wrote his masterpiece, 'The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich') , but the diary itself is a story of personal despair and recounts the series of Germany's national catastrophes that "slipped inexorably towards the abyss of war and self-destruction".
Bush has plunged America into the abyss of everlasting war, and the parallels between what Bush America is becoming and what Hitler's Germany became in the 1930s are as startling as they are repellent.
In Nuremberg in September 1934, Shirer wrote that "when Hitler finally appeared on the balcony for a moment [the faces in the audience] reminded me of the crazed expressions I saw once in the back country of Louisiana on the faces of some Holy Rollers . . . They looked up to him as if he were a Messiah . . ." and went on to record Hitler's shriek that "We are strong and we will get stronger!"
Shedding of their individual souls and minds
"There, in the floodlit night . . . the little men of Germany who have made Nazism possible achieved the highest state of being . . .: the shedding of their individual souls and minds — with the personal doubts and responsibilities and problems — until under the mystic lights . . . they were merged in the herd."
And in just such a speech on October 30, 2004 at the Target Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota (it's on the White House website), Bush said exactly the same thing: "We are strong, and we will get stronger."  And there was rapturous applause, just as at Hitler's Nuremberg. " . . . you know where I stand and where I intend to lead this country."  [Applause.] Audience:  "Four more years!  Four more years!  Four more years!",  just as Hitler was greeted with the adoring mass chant of  'Sieg Heil!,  Sieg Heil!,  Sieg Heil!'
The little people of America were speaking to Bush.  In the words of William Shirer describing Hitler's Germany, these were extremist Americans exactly like the Germans who "achieved the highest state of being . . .: the shedding of their individual souls and minds — with the personal doubts and responsibilities and problems — until under the mystic lights . . . they were merged in the herd."
Moral sewer that he made Germany become
It was the "little men", the ordinary people of the country, who first allowed and then encouraged Hitler to thrive in the moral sewer that he made Germany become in the Thirties.  On March 3, 1934, in a speech in Frankfurt, his vicious associate, Herman Goering declared: "Fellow Germans, my measures will not be crippled by any judicial thinking.  My measures will not be crippled by any bureaucracy.  I won't have to worry about justice, my mission is only to destroy and exterminate."
The modern Goering, John Bolton, nominated by Bush to be ambassador to the United Nations in a calculated insult to the entire world, believes "It is a big mistake for us to grant any validity to international law even when it may seem in our short-term interest to do so."
Beware, all those who seek justice, because, as Bolton wrote earlier, "Treaties are 'law' only for US domestic purposes" and have no meaning otherwise.
Hitler was given to double-think and double-speak, too
When international agreements become inconvenient for Bush Washington they can be unilaterally abrogated in a curt and contemptuous two paragraph note to the UN, as sent by Rice last week when Bush cancelled yet another long-standing accord.  What sort of example does Bush think this conveys to the world?
It is absurd for him to complain that other countries do not abide by international treaties or UN Security Council resolutions while he cancels US adherence to treaties and ignores flouting of UN resolutions by countries whose leaders have his approval.  But Hitler was given to double-think and double-speak, too, like all tinpot autocrats and would-be emperors.
The historian John Toland wrote in his masterly 'Adolf Hitler' (Doubleday, New York, 1976) that in mid-30s Germany "a revolution was going on, but since it was almost bloodless, many Germans did not, or chose not, to realize it.
This preliminary stage of the Revolution was given an innocuous name: 'Co-ordination'.
It appeared to be an efficient process of unifying the nation and was received with little alarm."
And just as the Patriot Act was thrust under the guard of the American people, so the German Nazis unified their country with promises of better things to come, emphasis on ultra-national pride, and utter contempt for foreigners and those within their national borders who did not conform to the standards of what the Leadership dictated.
For the Protection of the People and the State
The Nazi's equivalent of the Patriot Act was the decree "For the Protection of the People and the State" of February 28, 1933, which laid down that:
"Paragraphs 114, 115, 117, 118, 123, 124, and 153 in the German Reich Constitution are provisionally null and void.  Accordingly, the restrictions on personal freedom and the right to express opinions freely, including freedoms of the press, association, and assembly; monitoring of letters, cables, and telephone calls, searches of homes, and expropriation of property, and restrictions thereon, are hereby revoked within the limits previously stipulated in the law."
It is bizarre that not a single US legislator actually read the Patriot Act before voting for it (although one honorable and intelligent senator voted against it and was of course then reviled).  It was impossible to read it before voting, given the length of the document, the hundreds of cross-references, and the time available.
And millions of Americans who haven't read the Act or know anything about it agree with it completely because they have been brainwashed to embrace fanaticism.
Uncannily similar to Hitler's decree that set Germany on the slide to moral destruction
The Patriot Act is uncannily similar to Hitler's decree that set Germany on the slide to moral destruction, and unlike the Patriot missile system, it actually works.  (During the invasion of Iraq, US Patriot missiles downed a US Navy F-18 and a British Tornado, and a Patriot radar was destroyed by a USAF F-16 before it could be vaporized, too.)
I wrote in May last year that "The Patriot Act alters 15 Statutes.  The prerogatives, personal authority and dominance of the president of the United States have been extended to include drastic and quasi-imperial powers that threaten the liberties of all Americans."
This followed a speech by Bush to the faithful in the Chocolate Ballroom in Hershey, Pennsylvania when he declared to cheers that "The Patriot Act defends our liberty . . . It's essential law . . . It's a law that is making America safer . . . It doesn't make any sense to scale it back".
But if an American dares criticize the president in vehement terms, and that fact is recorded by some busybody, then the FBI can place such information on a citizen's file.  (This has happened.)  The citizen will never know about this, except through revelation by true American patriots, because the FBI's subpoena cannot be challenged in court and the victim of the Patriot Act is kept in ignorance about its ever being served.
Can this be freedom?  No: this is Bush freedom.
Which includes the freedom for a US citizen in uniform to kick a manacled prisoner in the face and for the world to be told that his cowardly cruelty was only a matter of "poor judgment".
It is the freedom for a US citizen in uniform to kill helpless, wounded, unarmed captives, secure in the knowledge that millions of good Christian Americans, including 'Todd Hale, Senior Church Image Consultant', will approve the murder and defend it against all tenets of law and morality.
Millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it
Charles Mackay, in his "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds", published in 1841, was of the opinion that "In reading the history of nations we find that . . . millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it until their attention is caught by some folly more captivating than the first.
We see one nation suddenly seized, from the highest to its lowest members, with a fierce desire for military glory . . . Men, it has been well said, think in herds . . ."
Bush "freedom" is based on the belief of Cheney, Bolton, Rice, Rumsfeld, and other warped figures in the Nazi creed that "We are strong and we will get stronger".
The catchword has caught the attention — the worship — of the deluded crowds, the herds, the millions who have been brainwashed by patriotic persuasion that if they disagree with national policy they are traitors, no matter how immoral that policy might be.
Hitler's sycophants applauded his insane ambitions to dominate the world, and in Bush Washington the same type of people bow and scrape and applaud his voodoo schemes to impose "freedom" by the bomb and the bullet.
America has lost all international moral authority it ever had, courtesy of a messianic ninny who seeks to construct an ethically corrupt system that encourages the strong to persecute the weak, the rich to despise the poor, and credulous bigots to triumph over common sense and decency.
If someone doesn't agree with you, then go kick him in the face.
It doesn't demand thought, and millions of people will think you're a great patriot.

From the video 'Holes in Heaven' — Brooks Agnew, Earth Tornographer
In 1983 I did radio tornography with 30 watts looking for oil in the ground.
I found 26 oil wells over a nine state area.
100 hundred percent of the time was accurate, which is just 30 watts of power beaming straight into solid rock.
HAARP uses a billion watts beamed straight into the ionosphere for experiments.
Picture these strings on the piano as layers of the Earth, each one has its own frequency.
What we used to do is beam radio waves into the ground and it would vibrate any 'strings' that were present in the ground.
We might get a sound back like ___ and we would say, that's natural gas.
We might get a sound back like ____ and we'd say that's crude oil.
We were able to identify each frequency.
We accomplished this with just 30 watts of radio power.
If you do this with a billion watts the vibrations are so violent that the entire piano would shake.
In fact the whole house would shake.
In fact the vibrations could be so severe under ground they could even cause an earthquake.

'After that I was so humiliated I couldn't see for my pain'

What I find is that the US Marines act with impunity.

They are conducting cordon and search operations designed to humiliate and terrorise the local community into compliance.

This is a rare and damning insight into what US forces are doing in that other “war on terror.”

Away from the eyes of the media, humiliation and brutalisation tactics similar to those used at Abu Ghraib are practiced here with impunity.

This documentary on Afghaistan by Carmela Baranowska that won the Walkley Award is a unique and unprecedented look at the sharp edge of the war on terror in one of the most remote and inaccessible places on earth.
