I haven't run across any information about what type of solutions may have been used or even what temperature they might have been, but all those "dehydrated" prisoners sure got a belly full of something, and Marjorie Cohn forgot to include it in this incredibly long list of the sadistic
and inhuman acts that Alberto Gonzales thought we could get away with.
" Mr. Gonzales, you have concurred in, even commissioned, advice that led to the following:
Sodomy with a broomstick, chemical light, metal object
Water boarding (simulated drowning)
Attaching electrodes to private parts
Pulling out fingernails
Pushing lit cigarettes into ears
Chaining hand and foot in fetal position without food or water
Forced standing on one leg in the sun
Gagging with duct tape
Tormenting with loud music and strobe lights
Subjecting to freezing/sweltering temperatures
Repeated, prolonged rectal exams
Hanging by arms from hooks
Permitting serious dog bites
Bending back fingers
Intense isolation for more than 3 months
Stacking of naked prisoners in pyramids
Injecting with drugs
Leaving bullet in body of wounded prisoner
Taping naked prisoner to board
Shooting into containers with men inside
Keeping prisoners in small, outdoor cages
Pepper spraying in face
Forcing heads into toilets and flushing
Threatening live burial, drowning, electrocution, rape and death
Beating prisoners to death
Killing wounded prisoners
Throwing off bridge into river and drowning
Saddam Hussein would be proud of you, Mr. Gonzales."
"You will have the distinction of being the first Latino Attorney General of the United States. You come from humble roots in Humble, Texas. You should understand the struggles of people of color, yet you have turned your back on them. As overseer of the policies that led to the torture of myriad people of color in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantánamo Bay, you have betrayed your roots."
Like I said, she forgot to mention the forced enemas.
I certainly hope that Conrad, Max and Denny have not sunk far enough in the gutter to even consider voting to let this creep be our new Attorney General.
To do so would be like supplying a pedoplile with kiddie porn and then leave him in charge of the daycare.
