    Default Irag torture watched via video conferencing by Cheney and others

    Wayne Madsen December, 2014. Madsen writes about some details not widely published about live streaming of torture sessions suggestion of "sexual voyeurism."


    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 Salon.com 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.
