2013, May ...WMR US Marketing Torture Packages to Foreign Countries...

WMR has learned from a former U.S. intelligence operative who served in Iraq that the Obama administration has decided to market to other countries a comprehensive "kidnapping to detention to torture" package for use against those considered to be threats against national security.

During the Bush administration, the CIA and Pentagon developed a system to intimidate Muslim detainees into becoming informants and intelligence assets by subjecting them to sexual humiliation and then threatening to provide photographs and videos of the abuse to their relatives and friends if they did not agree to work with U.S. intelligence. One of the preferred sexual humiliation tactics was known as "bottle torture," whereby a broken bottle was inserted into a detainee's anus. At Abu Ghraib, U.S. prison guards forced seven Iraqi detainees to strip, be stacked into a human pyramid, forced to masturbate, and, of course, as dictated by the blackmail portion of the intelligence recruitment program, photographed.

Army Major General Antonio Taguba's May 2004 report on prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib also contained examples of sexual humiliation of Iraq detainees:
Videotaping and photographing naked male and female detainees
Forcibly arranging detainees in various sexually explicit positions for photographing
Forcing detainees to remove their clothing and keeping them naked for several days at a time
Forcing naked male detainees to wear women’s underwear
Forcing groups of male detainees to masturbate themselves while being photographed and videotaped
Arranging naked male detainees in a pile and then jumping on them
Positioning a naked detainee on a MRE Box, with a sandbag on his head, and attaching wires to his fingers, toes, and penis to simulate electric torture
Writing “I am a Rapest” [sic] on the leg of a detainee alleged to have forcibly raped a 15-year old fellow detainee, and then photographing him naked
Placing a dog chain or strap around a naked detainee’s neck and having a female Soldier pose for a picture
A male MP guard having sex with a female detainee
The U.S. military guards who conducted such sexual humiliation on Iraqi prisoners were following the dictates of officers who were in charge of carrying out the project on behalf of the CIA, Department of Defense, and Bush White House. Sexual humiliation procedures for use against Muslims and Arabs were drawn up by cultural anthropologists and psychologists on the CIA's and Pentagon's payroll who ascertained that Muslim victims of sexual torture would forever carry the stigma of sexual humiliation and, if revealed publicly, would ensure they would be ostracized by their families and community. For that reason, many opted to become agents for U.S. intelligence rather than suffer the consequences of photographs and videos being made available to their families and friends. Although men were usually the targets for such blackmail, women were also sexually abused in order to recruit them as intelligence assets and collaborators.

The core of the Enhanced Interrogation Technique program was the product of John Bruce Jessen and James Elmer Mitchell, psychologists and former Air Force officers who, while on active duty, developed the Air Force's Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape" (SERE) program. In 2005, they established their own firm, Mitchell Jessen and Associates, which was among the companies that marketed the comprehensive torture and sexual humiliation program to clients abroad. Jessen and Mitchell are also active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Mormons. Mitchell Jessen and Associates, headquartered in Spokane, Washington, is recorded as being inactive since 2009.

Clues about worse photos and videos of abuse may be found in Israeli files about similar abuse of Palestinian and other Arab prisoners. In March 2000, a lawyer for a Lebanese prisoner kidnapped in 1994 by the Israelis in Lebanon claimed that his client had been subjected to torture, including rape. The type of compensation offered by Rumsfeld in his testimony has its roots in cases of Israeli torture of Arabs. In the case of the Lebanese man, said to have been raped by his Israeli captors, his lawyer demanded compensation of $1.47 million. The Public Committee Against Torture in Israel documented the types of torture meted out on Arab prisoners. Many of the tactics coincide with those contained in the Taguba report: beatings and prolonged periods handcuffed to furniture. In an article in the December 1998 issue of The Progressive, Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb reported on the treatment given to a 23-year old Palestinian held on "administrative detention." The prisoner was "cuffed behind a chair 17 hours a day for 120 days . . . [he] had his head covered with a sack, which was often dipped in urine or feces. Guards played loud music right next to his ears and frequently taunted him with threats of physical and sexual violence." If additional photos and videos document such practices, the Bush administration and the American people have, indeed, "seen nothing yet."

Although it is still largely undocumented if any of the contractor named in the report of General Antonio Taguba were associated with the Israeli military or intelligence services, it is noteworthy that one, John Israel, who was identified in the report as being employed by both CACI International of Arlington, Virginia, and Titan, Inc., of San Diego, may not have even been a U.S. citizen. The Taguba report states that Israel did not have a security clearance, a requirement for employment as an interrogator for CACI. According to CACI’s web site, "a Top Secret Clearance (TS) that is current and US citizenship" are required for CACI interrogators working in Iraq. In addition, CACI requires that its interrogators "have at least two years experience as a military policeman or similar type of law enforcement/intelligence agency whereby the individual utilized interviewing techniques."

Speculation that "John Israel" may be an intelligence cover name has fueled speculation whether this individual could have been one of a number of Israeli interrogators hired under a classified contract. Because U.S. citizenship and documentation thereof are requirements for a U.S. security clearance, Israeli citizens would not be permitted to hold a Top Secret clearance. However, dual U.S.-Israeli citizens could have satisfied Pentagon requirements that interrogators hold U.S. citizenship and a Top Secret clearance. Although the Taguba report refers twice to Israel as an employee of Titan, the company claims he is one of their sub-contractors. CACI stated that one of the men listed in the report "is not and never has been a CACI employee" without providing more detail. A U.S. intelligence source revealed that in the world of intelligence "carve out" subcontracts such confusion is often the case with "plausible deniability" being a foremost concern.

In fact, the Taguba report does reference the presence of non-U.S. and non-Iraqi interrogators at Abu Ghraib. The report states, "In general, US civilian contract personnel (Titan Corporation, CACI, etc), third country nationals, and local contractors do not appear to be properly supervised within the detention facility at Abu Ghraib."

The Pentagon is clearly concerned about the outing of the Taguba report and its references to CACI, Titan, and third country nationals, which could permanently damage U.S. relations with Arab and Islamic nations. The Pentagon’s angst may explain why the Taguba report is classified Secret No Foreign Dissemination.

The leak of the Taguba report was so radioactive, Daniel R. Dunn, the Information Assurance Officer for Douglas Feith’s Office of the Under Secretary of Defense, Policy (Policy Automation Services Security Team), sent a May 6, 2004, For Official Use Only Urgent E-mail to Pentagon staffers stating, "THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS REPORT IS CLASSIFIED; DO NOT GO TO FOX NEWS TO READ OR OBTAIN A COPY." Considering Feith’s close ties to the Israelis, such a reaction by his top computer security officer, a Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP), is understandable, although considering the fact that CISSPs are to act on behalf of the public good, it is also regrettable..

The reference to "third country nationals" in a report that restricts its dissemination to U.S. coalition partners (Great Britain, Poland, Italy, etc.) is another indication of the possible involvement of Israelis in the interrogation of Iraqi prisoners. Knowledge that the U.S. may have been using Israeli interrogators could have severely fractured the Bush administration’s tenuous "coalition of the willing’ in Iraq. General Taguba’s findings were transmitted to the Coalition Forces Land Component Command on March 9, 2004, just six days before the Spanish general election, one that the opposition anti-Iraq war Socialists won. The Spanish ultimately withdrew their forces from Iraq.

During his testimony before the Senate Armed Service Committee, Rumsfeld was pressed upon by Senator John McCain about the role of the private contractors in the interrogations and abuse. McCain asked Rumsfeld four pertinent questions, ". . . who was in charge? What agency or private contractor was in charge of the interrogations? Did they have authority over the guards? And what were the instructions that they gave to the guards?"

When Rumsfeld had problems answering McCain’s question, Lt. Gen. Lance Smith, the Deputy Commander of the U.S. Central Command, said there were 37 contract interrogators used in Abu Ghraib. The two named contractors, CACI and Titan, have close ties to the Israeli military and technology communities. Last January 14, after Provost Marshal General of the Army, Major General Donald Ryder, had already uncovered abuse at Abu Ghraib, CACI’s President and CEO, Dr. J.P. (Jack) London was receiving the Jerusalem Fund of Aish HaTorah’s Albert Einstein Technology award at the Jerusalem City Hall, with right-wing Likud politician Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz and ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism party Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski in attendance. Oddly, CACI waited until February 2 to publicly announce the award in a press release. CACI has also received grants from U.S.-Israeli bi-national foundations.

Titan also has had close connections to Israeli interests. After his stint as CIA Director, James Woolsey served as a Titan director. Woolsey is an architect of America’s Iraq policy and the chief proponent of and lobbyist for Ahmad Chalabi of the Iraqi National Congress. An adviser to the neo-conservative Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, Jewish Institute of National Security Affairs, Project for the New American Century, Center for Security Policy, Freedom House, and Committee for the Liberation of Iraq, Woolsey is close to Stephen Cambone, the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, a key person in the chain of command who would have not only known about the torture tactics used by U.S. and Israeli interrogators in Iraq but who would have also approved them. Cambone was associated with the Project for the New American Century and is viewed as a member of Rumsfeld’s neo-conservative "cabal" within the Pentagon.

Another person considered by Pentagon insiders to have been knowledgeable about the treatment of Iraqi prisoners is U.S. Army Col. Steven Bucci, a Green Beret and Rumsfeld’s military assistant and chief traffic cop for the information flow to the Defense Secretary. According to Pentagon insiders, Bucci was involved in the direction of a special covert operations unit composed of former U.S. special operations personnel who answered to the Pentagon rather than the CIA’s Special Activities Division, the agency’s own paramilitary group. The Pentagon group included Arabic linguists and former members of the Green Berets and Delta Force who operated covertly in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, and Uzbekistan. Titan also uses linguists trained in the languages (Arabic, Dari, Farsi, Pashto, Urdu, and Tajik) of those same countries. It is not known if a link exists between Rumsfeld’s covert operations unit and Titan’s covert operations linguists.

Another Titan employee named in the Taguba report is Adel L. Nakhla. Nakhla is a name common among Egypt’s Coptic Christian community, however, it is not known if Adel Nakhla is either an Egyptian-American or a national of Egypt. A CACI employee identified in the report, Steven Stephanowicz, is referred to as "Stefanowicz" in a number of articles on the prison abuse. Stefanowicz is the spelling used by Joe Ryan, another CACI employee assigned with Stefanowicz to Abu Ghraib. Ryan is a radio personality on KSTP, a conservative radio station in Minneapolis, who maintained a daily log of his activities in Iraq on the radio’s web site before it was taken down. Ryan indicated that Stefanowicz (or Stephanowicz) continued to hold his interrogation job in Iraq even though General Taguba recommended he lose his security clearance and be terminated for the abuses at Abu Ghraib.

In an even more bizarre twist, the Philadelphia Daily News identified a former expatriate public relations specialist for the government of South Australia in Adelaide named Steve Stefanowicz as possibly being the same person identified in the Taguba report. In 2000, Stefanowicz, who grew up in the Philadelphia and Allentown areas, left for Australia. On September 16, 2001, he was quoted by the Sunday Mail of Adelaide on the 911 attacks. He said of the attacks, "It was one of the most incredible and most devastating things I have ever seen. I have been in constant contact with my family and friends in the US and the mood was very solemn and quiet. But this is progressing into anger." Stefanowicz returned to the United States and volunteered for the Navy in a reserve status. His mother told the Allentown Morning Call in April 2002 that Stefanowicz was stationed somewhere in the Middle East but did not know where because of what Stefanowicz said was "security concerns." His mother told the Philadelphia Daily News that her son was in Iraq but she knew nothing about his current status.

The humiliation operation was part of the COPPER GREEN interrogation and intelligence program. The humiliation tactic used to recruit Muslim agents was also known by its classified cover name MATCHBOX.

U.S. military guards and CIA interrogators officially masked their sexual abuse as "cavity searches" of detainees. The sexual humiliation was part of an "enhanced interrogation" program put together by CIA and Defense Department personnel that also included isolation, extreme temperatures, and sleep deprivation. President Obama officially announced that his administration was abandoning the enhanced interrogation practices and, instead, relying on the procedures set forth in the U.S. Army Field Manual on Interrogation.

WMR has learned that the enhanced interrogation procedures are now marketed by Defense Department contractors to nations with dismal human rights records, including Jordan, Australia, Poland, United Kingdom, France, Greece, Morocco, United Arab Emirates, Italy, India, Singapore, Sweden, Canada, Japan, and Germany.

A large part of the U.S. "enhanced interrogation" program targeting Arabs and Muslims had been adopted from the Israelis who engaged in such procedures at Camp 1391, dubbed the "Israeli Guantanamo," and located between kibbutz Barkai and kibbutz Ma'anit in northern Israel.

The following is a Titan Corporation contract Arabic translator report on abuse of Iraqi detainees in Iraq. He was later fired by Titan. Titan and another interrogation support contractor, CACI, were known to have adopted some of the sexual humiliation procedures carried out by Israeli Shin Bet interrogators on Palestinian detainees. Both companies reportedly used Israeli sub-contractors who were involved in enhanced interrogations of detainees in Iraq.

The following was published by CounterPunch:

The Israeli Torture Template Rape, Feces and Urine-Dipped Cloth Sacks

Rape, Feces and Urine-Dipped Cloth Sacks
With mounting evidence that a shadowy group of former Israeli Defense Force and General Security Service (Shin Bet) Arabic-speaking interrogators were hired by the Pentagon under a classified "carve out" sub-contract to brutally interrogate Iraqi prisoners at Baghdad’s Abu Ghraib prison, one only needs to examine the record of abuse of Palestinian and Lebanese prisoners in Israel to understand what Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld meant, when referring to new, yet to be released photos and videos, he said, "if these images are released to the public, obviously its going to make matters worse."

According to a political appointee within the Bush administration and U.S. intelligence sources, the interrogators at Abu Ghraib included a number of Arabic-speaking Israelis who also helped U.S. interrogators develop the "R2I" (Resistance to Interrogation) techniques. Many of the torture methods were developed by the Israelis over many years of interrogating Arab prisoners on the occupied West Bank and in Israel itself.

December 10-11, 2014 -- Senate Torture Report exposes bizarre sexual voyeurism of Cheney, others

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence's Study of the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program, otherwise known as the "Torture Report," contains a number of references to male sexual abuse also seen in past reports about torture at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and Guantanamo.

The sexual abuse centers around inserting objects into the rectums of detainees. In the recent Senate report this activity also borders on coprophilia, a fetish that WMR exposed in the past on this website as one of Vice President Dick Cheney's more prurient interests. Coprophilia is defined as "paraphilia involving sexual arousal and pleasure from feces." Upon its release by Senate Intelligence Committee chair Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Cheney was quick to defend the interrogation and detention practices revealed in the report.

Not only does the report state that detainees, including Abu Zubaydah, were subject to frequent rectal examinations but they were also subjected to "rectal fluid resuscitation" for "partially refusing liquids." The report states that Majid Khan, a legal resident of the United States from Pakistan, was "very hostile to rectal feeding and removed the rectal tube as soon as he was allowed to." 

In addition, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, charged as the planner of the 9/11 attack, was "subjected to rectal rehydration without a determination of medical need, a procedure that KSM interrogator and chief of interrogations, [redacted] would later characterize as illustrative of the interrogator's 'total control over the detainee.'" Another detainee, Marwan al-Jabbur, a native of Pakistan who was later released after being held at various CIA black sites, was subjected to what was originally called an "enema," but was later acknowledged to be rectal rehydration. The report states that Abdul Rahim al-Nashiri, charged with being the mastermind of the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, and Majid Khan were subjected to rectal feeding. The CIA destroyed tapes of al-Nashiri being waterboarded at the CIA black site, called the "Blue Site," in Poland. Three detainees, Ramzi bin al-Shibh, Khallad bin
Attash, and Adnan al-Libi, were threatened with rectal rehydration.

Medical professionals contacted by WMR said there is no evidence that any nourishment can be achieved by giving someone a colonic enema or rectal infusion of food matter. The Senate report states that Majid Khan was infused rectally with a pureed "lunch tray" of hummus, pasta with sauce, nuts, and raisins. The CIA's June 2013 Response to the Senate committee failed to address the use of rectal feeding with CIA detainees, but defends the use of rectal rehydration as a "well acknowledged medical technique." Doctors WMR consulted rejected the CIA's statement as nonsense. The report also states that the "CIA leadership, including General Counsel Scott Muller and DDO James Pavitt, was also alerted to allegations that rectal exams were conducted with 'excessive force' on two detainees at DETENTION SITE COBALT [located in Afghanistan and known as the "Salt Pit"]. CIA attorney [redacted] was asked to follow up, although CIA records do not indicate any resolution of the inquiry. CIA records indicate that one of the detainees, Mustafa al-Hawsawi, was later diagnosed with chronic hemorrhoids, an anal fissure, and symptomatic prolapse." Al-Hawsawi, charged with being the financier of the 9/11 attack, remains in detention in Guantanamo.

According to the report, it is quite likely that the "rectal infusions" were contained in CIA videotapes of the interrogations of Zubaydah and al-Nashiri. It is also known that live video streaming of interrogations was viewed by senior U.S. government officials. According to the report, "CIA officers were observing the foreign government interrogations of Ammar al-Baluchi via video feed." Al Baluchi, a native of Kuwait accused of being an Al Qaeda financier in Pakistan and Dubai, was held in a CIA black site and is currently in Guantanamo.

After the Senate Intelligence Committee expressed interest in the torture videotapes, the CIA destroyed them on November 9, 2005, according to the report. The number of videotapes held by the CIA and destroyed is not disclosed. The report indicates that other videotapes of torture were destroyed by the CIA beginning in December 2007.

WMR previously reported that live video streaming equipment used by Vice President Cheney and his aides to view torture sessions in his Old Executive Building office was destroyed by a suspicious fire. On May 28, 2009, WMR reported: "On December 22, 2008, WMR reported on the high-tech support provided the Bush-Cheney White House by Mike Connell's GovTech Solutions and his close colleague Jeff Averbeck's firm SmarTech. Connell died last December when the plane he was piloting crashed short of landing in Akron, Ohio. We have now learned that Connell and Averbeck may have been behind the installation of live streaming black boxes in the White House and the Eisenhower Old Executive Office Building used to stream live video of torture sessions in Guantanamo, Cuba and Abu Ghraib to the Old Executive Office Building office of Vice President Dick Cheney's Chief Counsel David Addington and into the White House, itself."

Addington is mentioned a number of times in the Senate report as being a key player in the torture program.  WMR's May 28, 2009 report continued: "The fire that broke out in an 'electrical closet' in the Old Executive Office Building on December 19, 2007, near Cheney's ceremonial office likely contained the live streaming boxes used to stream torture sessions from Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib, according to our sources who added that SmartTech and Airnet have been in the live streaming video business since 2002. With the recent statement of retired U.S. Army General Antonio Taguba that rape and other sexual molestation sessions were prevalent at Abu Ghraib and that they were photographed, the stories of the suspicious death of Connell and the White House fire have taken on new relevancy. As reported by WMR on January 10, 2008: 'Army Major General Antonio Taguba's report on Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse stated that the abuse included 'A male MP guard 'having sex' with a female detainee.' 'Having sex' was an obvious attempt to avoid the use of the word 'rape.' It is obvious that Taguba's report was either altered or some evidence was not shared with him and his investigators . . . Another investigation conducted by Lt. Gen. Anthony Jones and Maj. Gen. George Fay of Abu Ghraib reported male homosexual rape of prisoners but not the rape of female prisoners."

The Taguba report on detainee abuse in Iraq also stated that detainees were sodomized with glow sticks. WMR also reported that U.S. sodomized underage teens at Iraqi detention facilities with broom sticks and flashlights and that videotapes of this abuse were made available to senior White House staff for "entertainment" purposes.The coprophilia angle again came into play when in 2006 photographs from Abu Ghraib prison were released that showed prisoners crawling on the floor naked, being forced to perform sexual acts, and being covered in feces.

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld also personally oversaw sexual abuse of at least one detainee. A December 2005 internal US Army Inspector General report leaked to the on-line publication described how  Rumsfeld personally monitored by telephone the interrogation of Saudi detainee Mohamed el Qahtani, described as the "20th hijacker." Lt. Gen. Randall Schmidt reported to the Inspector General that the abuse  of Qahtani "looked like Abu Ghraib." Qahtani was forced to wear women's underwear, perform sex acts in front of a woman, and perform "dog tricks" while wearing a leash. The nudity and "stress position" acts were personally approved by Rumsfeld in December 2002.

However, it is Cheney who has been quick to defend the sexually perverse interrogation practices from which he appears to have derived personal gratification. On October 26, 2006, WMR reported that people who knew Dick Cheney in Wyoming before he served in the Nixon administration claimed he always had an unusual penchant for hanging around young girls, some as young as seven-years old. Cheney reportedly walked around his Wyoming home in his underwear, sometimes when his two young daughters' friends were visiting. Cheney did not seem to mind that his activities around his home would inevitably expose his penis to the young girls.

Senate Intelligence Committee report on rectal rehydration appears to match Dick Cheney's most prurient sexual interests. Cheney's staff suppressed the above edition of The Globe from DC metro area supermarkets.

WMR also reported: "Cheney served as a Congressman from Wyoming from 1979 to 1989. This was during a time when two major page scandals, both involving Republican members of Congress, rocked Capitol Hill. They were the Koreagate scandal and the page/prostitutes visiting the White House in the late 1980s. In 1981, Lynne Cheney wrote "Sisters," an Old West novel containing lesbian themes. Dick Cheney's close friend and former chief of staff Scooter Libby penned a novel called "The Apprentice." The following is an excerpt from Libby's book, which features its main character, Yukiko, drawing hair on the 'mound' of a little girl: 'At age 10 the madam put the child in a cage with a bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons. They fed her through the bars and aroused the bear with a stick when it seemed to lose interest.'"

In 2002, Cheney held a reception for the publication of the second edition of Libby's book at the vice president's mansion.

On June 5, 2007, WMR reported on bizarre and kinky sexual practices engaged in by top Bush administration and other Republican officials by clients of "DC Madam" Jeane Palfrey's Pamela Martin & Associates escort service and other services: "The Bush administration's increasing nervousness about Deborah Jeane Palfrey's phone list is understandable after more details have emerged about some of the more bizarre prurient appetites of some past clients of Pamela Martin & Associates clients, said to include top officials of the Bush administration, Congressional members and staffers, and at least two well-known Washington, DC journalists.

Some escorts regularly paid visits to clients with whips and handcuffs as part of their regular ensemble.

Prostitutes hired by Louisiana Senator David Vitter in New Orleans are reporting that Vitter had a bizarre sexual fetish -- he liked to wear diapers during his trysts.

While that may be weird, some other prostitution clients due to be outed in Washington would appear much more bizarre. WMR has learned that certain VIPs who engaged the services of 'fantasy' escorts enjoyed what is known as 'water sports' -- firstly, practices that involve urination and, 'number two,' activities that are even worse.

Cheney's coprophilia fetish was the subject of WMR's April 11, 2008 report, "Cheney, according to knowledgeable sources involved in the Palfrey trial, paid at least one escort to straddle a glass top table and defecate on it while Cheney peered at the bowel 'evacuation' from underneath." The act was performed before Cheney became vice president at a town home next door to his own residence at Madison of McLean, an upscale housing development in McLean, Virginia close to the CIA's headquarters. Palfrey, had been found guilty of racketeering, mail fraud, and money laundering on April 15, 2008, just four days after WMR published its report about her escorts being involved in coprophiliac activities with Cheney. On May 1, 2008, Palfrey was found hanging in a utility shed at her mother's home in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Police ruled the death a "suicide." 

After WMR's report on Cheney's use of Palfrey's escorts ran on the front cover of The Globe supermarket tabloid, the editor was informed that Cheney's aides pressured two local retailers, Giant Food and Safeway, not to carry that issue. However, CVS pharmacy did sell the issue.

The bottom line on the rectal abuse at the CIA black sites, Guantanamo Bay, and Abu Ghraib is that it was performed not to extract any meaningful intelligence but for the sexual gratification of coprohiliacs like Dick Cheney and his closest associates. While squirting a puree of hummus, pasta, nuts and raisins into the rectums of U.S. detainees had no nutritional value for prisoners who refused to eat, the prurient nature of the procedure is in keeping with the bizarre sexual appetites of Mr. Cheney and his entourage.


WMR December 13, 2005 -- Cheney's January 2005 trip to Poland to mark the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp may have had a side trip.

December 13, 2005 -- Cheney's January 2005 trip to Poland to mark the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp may have had a side trip.

Informed sources in Washington report that when Dick Cheney flew to Poland for the 60th anniversary ceremonies marking the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp last January, his three day visit also included a clandestine visit to a secret CIA camp in Poland where suspected "Al Qaeda" prisoners were being subjected to torture. Cheney was in Poland from January 26 to 28. The Auschwitz solemn ceremonies were on January 27. On January 26, Cheney held talks in Krakow with Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski and Ukraine's President Viktor Yuschenko and he visited the Galicia Jewish Museum.

Poland and Ukraine have been identified by U.S. intelligence sources as the location for secret CIA prisons and airfields. In the case of Ukraine, an intelligence source personally witnessed the defense and intelligence contractor Raytheon providing the logistics for Soviet-era airfields to handle the prisoner flights.


Cheney trip to Auschwitz allegedly took in a side trip to a secret CIA prison camp

The Cheney detour allegedly took place on  Friday, January 28, after he paid a quick visit to the Auschwitz camp and wrote in the guest book "may the evils committed here never again darken our world." Cheney's personal party included his wife Lynne Cheney; his daughter Elizabeth Cheney, and Lewis "Scooter" Libby. Two weeks after the Polish visit, Elizabeth Cheney, who served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs from 2002 to 2003, was named by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs and Coordinator for Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiatives.

There is particular interest being focused on Lynne Cheney's former colleague at the American Enterprise Institute, Radek Sikorski, Poland's new Defense Minister under its center-right government and a former Deputy Defense Minister who may have served as a liaison between Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld's Pentagon on the establishment of the secret prison network in Poland. It is interesting to note that former CIA director Adm. Stansfield Turner referred to Dick Cheney as the "Vice President for torture." Cheney's and his family's active involvement in overseeing the establishment of secret prisons in Poland may have been what Turner, who obviously still talks to CIA insiders, was referring to.

Although Cheney's Air Force Two Boeing 757 left Krakow ahead of the plane carrying special guests, it arrived at Andrews Air Force Base after the guest plane arrived. It was claimed that Air Force Two had to stop for refueling -- a cover story to hide the fact that it had made another stop so Cheney could visit one of the secret CIA Polish prisons. Poland is now reported to have had the largest number of CIA prisons in eastern Europe. Cheney and Libby's detour may have been to Stare Liejkuty, a secretive and heavily guarded intelligence facility near Szczytno-Szymany in northeastern Poland. There is one recorded CIA flight to Szczynto-Szymany airport  -- a Boeing 737 operated by a CIA front company whose September 2003 route took it from Washington, DC to Prague Ruzyne Airport; Tashkent, Uzbekistan; Kabul, Afghanistan; Szczytno-Szymany; Mihail Kogalniceanu, near Constanta, Romania; Sale, Morocco, and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Szczynto-Szymany airport: capable of handling large planes like Cheney's Boeing 757.

Oddly, Cheney's motorcade in Poland, all flown from the United States, had a special decontamination vehicle accompanying it to the location of the camp that once masked gas chambers as decontamination units for incoming prisoners.

WMR ... Rendition and torture in foreign prisons: invented by Mossad

October 3-4, 2013 -- Rendition and torture in foreign prisons: invented by Mossad

A perusal of files maintained for decades by the CIA show that before the agency became influenced by the Mossad culture it looked warily upon its rendition and torture practices in the Middle East, Western Europe, and Africa.

CIA files show that Langley was closely tracking media reports, particularly West German and Swedish news periodicals, about Mossad being given access to foreign prisons to conduct brutal interrogations of Palestinians and Palestinian sympathizers, particularly in West Germany and Kenya. The CIA was also monitoring reports that the Mossad was responsible for carrying out assassinations of prisoners being held in West Germany.

The West German press reported in 1979 that Mossad intelligence officers were given secret access to prisons in Munich, Amberg, Straubing, and Landsberg to interrogate Palestinians and, in some cases extracting confessions from the Palestinians that would be used against the prisoners in West German courts. The Palestinians were never informed that their interrogators were Mossad officers.

Other West German press reports in 1989 monitored by the CIA indicated that Mossad officers tortured and drugged Palestinian prisoners in West German jails, particularly in Straubing. One such prisoner, Abdel Wali Abdel Hafez Aabed, was arrested by German police and jailed in Straubing for four months for allegedly attempting to smuggle explosive material into West Germany. Aabed was reportedly drugged by Mossad agents and was shown photographs of his family in the West Bank and told that if he did not cooperate with Mossad, his family would be harmed. After Aabed was released he traveled to Beirut where he was later found dead from an apparent suicide. Aabed wrote in an alleged suicide letter that he had no other choice but to take his own life to protect his family from the Mossad. The West Berlin press reported that an Arabic-speaking "translator," believed to be a Mossad agent, accompanied West Berlin police ihn the interrogation of Palestinian prisoners held in the western part of the divided city..

In 1979, the Swedish press reported that there were suspicions that Mossad agents were involved in the prison cell assassinations of three members of the Red Army Faction -- Andreas Baader, Jan Carl Raspe, and Gudrun Ensslin -- at Stammheim prison on the night of October 18, 1977. All three were serving life sentences for murder and terrorism. The deaths of the three, including the gunshot deaths of Baader and Raspe, were reported by prison officials to be the result of a suicide pact. The brains of the three were turned over to the Neurological Research Institute of Tuebingen university for scientific research but all three brains later disappeared without a trace. The three had a "contact ban" imposed on them, meaning they could not have any contact with one another or outside visitors. Ensslin was found hanging in her cell from speaker wire while Baader and Raspe died of gunshot wounds. Baader was found to have powder burns on his right hand, however, he was left-handed. Raspe had no powder burns on his hands. Baader was said to have fired his gun from the base of the back of his neck, which exited through his forehead, a physical impossibility.

One West German intelligence officer told Sweden's Aftonbladet: "I believed they [Baader, Raspe and Ensslin] were assassinated, but I don't believe it was our people who killed them."

After 9/11 and the U.S. invasion of Iraq, there were numerous reports of Israeli agents being seen at U.S. prisons at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay, and other sites interrogating and directing the torture of detainees being held by the United States.

The CIA was also tracking news reports on renditions by Mossad of nationals of other countries. On January 18, 1976, Kenyan security police arrested in the arrivals hall of Nairobi airport two West Germans -- Brigitte Schulz and Thomas Reuter. They and three Palestinians also arrested -- Hussein Hadi al-Attar, Mahmoud Musa Hasan al-Makussi, and Ibrahim Tawfiq Ibrahim Yusuf -- were taken to Kenyan military headquarters in Nairobi, interrogated by Mossad agents, and then transported secretly in a disguised El Al aircraft to Israel where they were imprisoned at a secret detention center. Kenya did not have an extradition treaty with Israel and there was no hearing before a Kenyan court approving the removal of what became known as the "Nairobi Five" to Israel. This template would be adopted by the CIA in the rendition of hundreds of Muslims to "black sites" for torture and interrogation without any formal extradition hearings in the countries where they were apprehended.

The five were held for four months without seeing an attorney and they all reported they were subjected to torture by Shin Bet officers in order to force confessions that they planned to shoot down an El Al plane. During the trial of the two West Germans in April of 1977, only one West German embassy official was permitted to observe the proceedings. The Israeli government permitted no defense witnesses to provide testimony about why the two Germans were in Kenya, their forcible removal from Kenya, or their torture by Israeli interrogators. The Israelis wanted the two Germans to plead guilty on the charge of trying to shoot down an El Al plane. The Germans were promised a five year prison sentence in return for their confession. 

The case against the two Germans was strengthened after the June 27, 1976 hijacking by Palestinians and West Germans of an Air France Airbus, en route from Tel Aviv to Paris, to Entebbe, Uganda. Part of the demands of the hijackers were the release by Israel of the Nairobi Five. Later, a British diplomatic report written by D. H. Colvin, who was assigned to the British embassy in Paris, claimed that the hijacking of the aircraft was an Israeli false flag operation designed to garner sympathy for Israel from the French government and people.

On September 12, 1979, Schulz and Reuter were sentenced to ten years in prison. In reality, the two Germans agreed under duress to plead guilty to unspecific anti-Israeli activities in return for their release in February 1981.  The Israeli kidnapping of the Germans came after a Dutch national, Gerd Dessen, was kidnapped on a ship in international waters between Cyprus and Lebanon. Dessen was a member of the Netherlands Palestine Solidarity Committee, which earned him a week in an Israeli prison. 

The fate of the three Palestinians kidnapped by Mossad from Kenya was never known.

Israel has continued with its rendition program. In 2011, Gaza civil engineer 
Dirar Abu Sisi was bundled off to Israel from Kiev, where he was visiting his brother. Working with Ukrainian police, Mossad agents questioned Sisi in a Mossad safe house in Kiev and then flew him to Israel. Sisi was ultimately jailed in Shikma prison in Ashkelon. With only the flimsiest of evidence, Sisi was charged with being a major cog in the Iranian weapons smuggling network in Gaza.

Shikma Prison in Ashkelon holds renditioned prisoners. The entire concept of kidnapping, rendition, and "enhanced interrogation" is made in Israel.

U.S. military personnel who are aware of the presence of Israeli interrogators and torturers inside current and former U.S. detention centers are under strict gag orders not to speak about the Israelis.

WMR ... July 8, 2009 -- Message from Cynthia McKinney after her prison time in the revolting Zionist hell-hole known as "Israel"

July 8, 2009 -- Message from Cynthia McKinney after her prison time in the revolting Zionist hell-hole known as "Israel"


Well, all I can say is "Thank you!"  Your calls, faxes, protests, and prayers all made a huge difference and helped to secure our protection and our release.  I would also like to thank those at the Tel Aviv Embassy for their work on behalf of the three U.S. citizens held by the Israelis.  For those of you who missed it, here is the statement I put out from the Israeli prison.  Please forgive the undone, but needed edits.  I have tried twice, now, to get into Gaza.  I just got off the phone with George Galloway who extended a personal invitation to me to join him and the US convoy in Viva Palestina!  I'm certainly excited about that.  Maybe I will finally make it to Gaza.

Here's my "Letter from an Israeli Prison:"

Original audio message available here:

A funny thing happened to me on my way to Gaza.  Before I left for Gaza, I was giddy with excitement.  The children needed school supplies.  It was a last-minute, but urgent request.  Please bring crayons for the children.  And so I accepted contributions of crayola crayons, #2 pencils, pencil sharpeners, paint brushes, and crayola watercolors.

When I told people that I was going shopping to buy crayons for the children of Gaza, everyone wanted to donate.  By the time I left, my suitcase could hold no more.  So, full of expectation, I entered the airport in the U.S. headed once again to Larnaca, Cyprus where the Hope Flotilla, consisting of the free Gaza" and the "Spirit of Humanity" were to embark to Gaza.

The "Free Gaza" was to be donated to the people of Gaa so they could replace some of the boats confiscated or bombed by the Israelis during Operation Cast Lead.

It was a beautiful dream.  And dream it had to be because I had tried to get to Gaza before.  At the outbreak of Israel's Operation Cast Lead, I boarded a Free Gaza boat, with one day's notice, and tried, as the U.S. representative in a multinational delegation, to deliver trhee tons of medical supplies to an already-besieged and ravaged Gaza.  But, during Opertion Cast Lead, U.S.-supplied F-16s raised hell fire on a trapped people.  Ethnic cleansing became full-scale, outright genocide.


U.S.-supplied white phosphorus, depleted uranium, robotic technology, DIME weapons, and cluster bombs - new weapons creating injuries never treated before by Jordanian and Norwegian doctors. I was later told by doctors who were there in Gaza during Israel's onslaught that Gaza had become Israel's veritable weapons testing laboratory; and the people used to test and improve the kill ratio of their weapons.

The world saw Israel's despicable violence thanks to al-Jazeera Arabic and Press TV that broadcast in English. I saw those broadcasts live and around the clock, not from the USA but from Lebanon, where my first attempt to get into Gaza had ended because the Israeli military rammed the boat I was on in international waters that carried medical supplies.  That boat, the Dignity, was completely destroyed in its encounter with the Israeli military.

Again, on a humanitarian mission aborted by the Israeli military.  I am now known as Israeli Prisoner #88794.  I am in cell number 5, Ramle Prison.  How could I be in prison for collecting crayons for kids and trying to get the crayons to them?

The Israeli authorities have tried to get us to confess that we committed a crime.  And while in the cellblock, I have access to my clothes and a cell phone, but not the crayons or any clothing that has the word "Gaza" on it.  Zionism has surely run out of its last legitimacy if this is what it does to people who believe so deeply in human rights for all that they put their own lives on the line for someone else's children. Israel is the fullest expression of Zionism, but if Israel fears for its security because Gaza's children have crayons then not only has Israel lost its last shred of legitimacy, but Israel must be declared a failed state.

I am facing deportation from the state that brought me here at gunpoint after commandeering our boat. I was brought to Israel against my will. I am being held in this prison because I had a dream that Gaza's children could color & paint, that Gaza's wounded could be healed, and that Gaza's bombed-out houses could be rebuilt.

But I've learned an interesting thing by being inside this prison. First of all, it's incredibly black: populated mostly by Ethiopians who also had a dream.  My five cellmates have been here for about six months each.  One is pregnant; they are all in their twenties. They thought they were coming to the Holy Land. They had a dream that their lives would be better.  The CIA-installed puppet in Addis Ababa, President Meles, whom I have met, has put the once-proud, never-colonized Ethiopia into the back pocket of the United States, and become a place of torture, rendition, and occupation. Ethiopians must flee their country because superpower politics became more important than human rights and self-determination.

My cellmates came to the Holy Land so they could be free from the exigencies of superpower politics. They committed no crime except to have a dream. They came to Israel because they thought that Israel held promise for them. Their journey to Israel through Sudan and Egypt was arduous. I can only imagine what it must have been like for them. And it wasn't cheap. Many of them represent their family's best collective efforts for self-fulfillment. They made their way to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees. They got their yellow paper of identification. They got their certificate for police protection. They are refugees from tragedy, and they made it to Israel. Only after they arrived, Israel told them "There is no UN in Israel."

The police have license to pick them up and suck them into the black hole of a farce for a justice system. These beautiful, industrious, proud young women represent the hopes of entire families. The idea of Israel tricked them and the rest of us. In a widely propagandized slick marketing campaign, Israel represented itself as a place of refuge and safety for the world's first Jews and Christians. I, too, believed that marketing and failed to look deeper.  The truth is that Israel lied to the world. Israel lied to the families of these young women. Israel lied to the women themselves who are now trapped at Ramle.

And what are we to do? One of my cellmates cried today. She has been here for six months. As an American, crying with them is not enough. The policy of the United States must be better, and while we watch President Obama give 12.8 trillion dollars to the financial elite of the United States it ought now be clear that "hope," "change," and "yes we can" were powerfully presented images of dignity and self-fulfillment, individually and nationally, that besieged people everywhere truly believed in.

It was a slick marketing campaign, as slickly put to the world and to the voters of America as was Israel's marketing to the world. It tricked all of us but, more tragically, these young women.

We must cast an informed vote about better candidates seeking to represent us. I have read and re-read Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Letter from a Birmingham Jail. Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever imagined that I, too, would one day have to do so. It is clear that taxpayers in Europe and the U.S. have a lot to atone for, for what they've done to others around the world.

What an irony! My son begins his law school program without me because I am in prison, in my own way trying to do my best, again, for other people's children. Forgive me, my son. I guess I'm experiencing the harsh reality which is why people need dreams. I'm lucky. I will leave this place. Has Israel become the place where dreams die?

Ask the people of Palestine. Ask the stream of black and Asian men whom I've seen being processed at Ramle. Ask the women on my cellblock. [Ask yourself:] what are you willing to do?

Let's change the world together and reclaim what we all need as human beings: Dignity.

I appeal to the United Nations to get these women of Ramle, who have done nothing wrong other than to believe in Israel as the guardian of the Holy Land, resettled in safe homes.

I appeal to the United States Department of State to include the plight of detained UNHCR-certified refugees in the Israel Country Report in its annual Human Rights Report.

I appeal, once again, to President Obama to go to Gaza: send your special envoy, George Mitchell there, and to engage Hamas as the elected choice of the Palestinian people.

I dedicate this message to those who struggle to achieve a free Palestine, and to the women I've met at Ramle.

Cynthia McKinney, July 2nd 2009, also known as Ramle prisoner number 88794.
