Gitmo's Greatest Hits

1. Enter Sandman – Metallica
2. Bodies – Drowning Pool
3. Shoot to Thrill – AC/DC
4. Hell's Bells – AC/DC
5. I Love You, from the Barney And Friends children's TV show
6. Born In The USA– Bruce Springsteen
7. We Are The Champions – Queen
8. Babylon – David Gray
9. White America – Eminem
10. Sesame Street – theme from the children's TV show

These ten songs are being used to torture terrorists at Gitmo and in CIA clandestine prisons.

Binyam Mohammed, who was planning to bomb high-rise apartment buildings in America with dirty bombs, claims he was a victim of such music torture at the CIA "Dark Prison" in Afghanistan, where his fellow terrorists, unable to endure it, banged their heads on the walls to make it stop: "There was loud music, (Eminem's] Slim Shady and Dr Dre for 20 days. I heard this non-stop over and over ... The CIA worked on people, including me, day and night for the months before I left. Plenty lost their minds ... To lose your sight or lose your mind. While having your eyes gouged out would be horrendous, there is little doubt which you would choose."

Sometimes the CIA fiends would play Barney the Purple Dinosaur singing for days his happy song:
"I love you, You love me
We're a happy family
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you
Won't you say you love me, too?

"I love you, You love me
We're best friends like best friends should be
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you
Won't you say you love me, too?"

Over and over and over until the Al Qaeda bastards cracked.

Singer-songwriter David Gray, whose song, Babylon, was used to break terrorists, is outraged: "What we're talking about here is people in a darkened room, physically inhibited by handcuffs, bags over their heads and music blaring. That's torture. It doesn't matter what the music is – it could be Tchaikovsky's finest, or it could be Barney the Dinosaur. It really doesn't matter, it's going to drive you completely nuts."

Likewise, Tom Morello, a guitarist formerly with Rage Against the Machine, was horrified to find his songs were used as an "enhanced interrogation technique" instead of waterboarding.

The success of the rock music torture is undeniable. It is said that the would be 20th skyjacker Mohammed al Qahtani was forced to confess by pop hits by Christina Aguilera. For some patriotic rock stars, use of their songs to fight terrorists is a point of pride. Bassist Stevie Benton of the group Drowning Pool brags that their song, "Bodies," is used as a weapon by interrogators: "I take it as an honor to think that perhaps our song could be used to quell another 9/11 attack or something like that."

Awwwww, poor babies.
Since the other side's method of choice is cutting off your head, I'd take listening to music anyday.

They should make them listen to, "God bless the USA" over and over. That would really kill them! ;)

I would suggest they play Obama's speeches. I don't know. I guess we have to draw the torture line somewhere, even for terrorists...
