The Red Cross, Jeremy Scahill, Marc Ambinder, the BBC, the New York Times, the story’s out; secret authorization for Appendix M.
It appears that the primary method of interrogation is dramatic sleep deprivation, 4 hours per day for up to 30 days if I understand it correctly. My question is this; by what means does an interrogator prevent someone from sleeping who has had such little amount of sleep for days? What methods are used to keep this person from sleeping? They must be fairly dramatic, what are they? I feel we have a right to know and as an American I am deeply concerned that a secret authorization was given, for human rights was one of the conditions of change which progressives voted for.
Americans who value human rights must forge ahead in continually asserting human rights for there is ever a force which opposes the necessity to value human rights under all conditions.
I stand with Dr. King, Caesar Chavez, Dorothy Day, Fathers John Dear, Steven Kelly, Louie Vitale and other peace-loving Americans on the side of human rights and of nonviolence. None of these great Americans would approve of what is happening at the black jail in Bagram, none. All would say; pray, and that’s what I intend to do.
