"These things included rape, gang rape, rape using eels, snakes or hard objects, and rape followed by murder; "the Bell Telephone Hour" rendered by attaching wires to the genitals or other sensitive parts of the body; waterboarding; "the airplane," in which a prisoner's arms are tied behind the back and the rope looped over a hook on the ceiling suspending the prisoner in midair while he or she was beaten; beatings with a rubber hose or whip; and the use of police dogs to maul prisoners. All this and more occurred in PIC's, one of which was run by former Congressman Rob Simmons (R-CT) while he was a CIA officer running the PIC in Phu Yen Province in 1972."Mauling by dogs? Rape? Murdering prisoners?
Sounds familiar, wouldn't you say?
Now where would the CIA get such psychotic ideas from?
But don't feel left out! As Valentine so thoroughly describes in his book, the Phoenix Program framework has been installed in the USA, just waiting for that moment when the homicidal maniacs running the USA decide it's needed here at home.
