ISIS har "lärt av de bästa" - Torterar amerikaner och västerlänningar med CIA:s tortyrteknik

Enligt bl.a. Washington Post, så blev den halshuggne amerikanske journalisten James Foley, även utsatt för CIA:s tortyrteknik med bl.a. waterboarding före sin död. Vittnesuppgifter säger att ISIS numera har börjat använda CIA/USA:s tidigare tortyr-program på tillfångatagna västerlänningar och amerikaner...

Enligt bl.a. den amerikanska senatorn Dianne Feinstein, så är Waterboarding en förhörsteknik som användes flitigt redan under den spanska inkvisitionen.

Islamic State tortured James Foley, other Westerners with harsh CIA tactics

***
RT 2014-08-29
The American photojournalist who was beheaded by Islamic State militants was also tortured using some of the same methods employed by the CIA in its controversial, post-9/11 interrogation program.

James Foley was subjected to waterboarding multiple times while being imprisoned by the Islamic State, as were three other kidnapped Westerners. According to the Washington Post, several unnamed American officials confirmed the news, with one adding that Foley “suffered a lot of physical abuse” before his death.

A French journalist who was held by the Islamic State along with Foley said, in addition to waterboarding, the American was punished even more than others after militants discovered his brother was a member of the US Air Force.

In a video released last week, Foley was beheaded by a masked, English-speaking Islamic State militant. The actions of the hardline Islamist group, which has brutally torn through parts of Iraq and Syria, have triggered a military response from the United States, and they described Foley’s murder as “a message to America” for its use of airstrikes in Iraq.

Waterboarding is a process that simulates drowning, and involves covering an individual’s face with a cloth and pouring cold water over them. The wet cloth makes it extremely difficult to breathe, and the procedure has typically been regarded as torture in the United States.

- Following the September 11th attacks, however, the CIA began using the technique on captured terrorism suspects under the banner of “enhanced interrogation," and Islamic State militants reportedly modeled their behavior after the agency’s own procedures. 

Since taking office, President Barack Obama has criticized the practice as torture and banned it, along with several other techniques.

As the Post noted, opponents of the technique have long argued that performing it on prisoners opens the door to the possibility that America’s enemies would subject US citizens to the same kind of treatment.

“Waterboarding dates to the Spanish Inquisition and has been a favorite of dictators through the ages, including Pol Pot and the regime in Burma,” said Democratic senators Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.) back in 2008. “Condoning torture opens the door for our enemies to do the same to captured American troops in the future.”

Responding to the charge that the Islamic State’s methods mirrored those once employed by the CIA, however, one US official adamantly denied the idea.

“[The Islamic State] is a group that routinely crucifies and beheads people,” the official told the newspaper. “To suggest that there is any correlation between [its] brutality and past US actions is ridiculous and feeds into their twisted propaganda.”

Following President Obama’s election, the Senate initiated a comprehensive investigation into the CIA’s post-9/11 interrogation tactics, the results of which have still not been released to the public. As RT reported previously, the Senate is currently wrangling with the White House and the intelligence community over how much of the report’s conclusions to keep redacted.

“I have concluded the redactions eliminate or obscure key facts that support the report’s findings and conclusions,” Feinstein said earlier this month. “Until these redactions are addressed to the committee’s satisfaction, the report will not be made public.”

As a result of various leaks to the press, it’s believed that the so-called “torture report” is highly critical of the CIA’s behavior, and found that techniques like waterboarding provided no valuable intelligence regarding terrorism.

2014-09-07 The Telegraph - By , Washington
The CIA brought top al-Qaeda suspects close “to the point of death” by drowning them in water-filled baths during interrogation sessions in the years that followed the September 11 attacks, a security source has told The Telegraph.

The description of the torture meted out to at least two leading al-Qaeda suspects, including the alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, far exceeds the conventional understanding of waterboarding, or “simulated drowning” so far admitted by the CIA.

“They weren’t just pouring water over their heads or over a cloth,” said the source who has first-hand knowledge of the period.

“- They (CIA) were holding them under water until the point of death, with a doctor present to make sure they did not go too far. This was real torture.”

The account of extreme CIA interrogation comes as the US Senate prepares to publish a declassified version of its so-called Torture Report – a 3,600-page report document based on a review of several million classified CIA documents.

Publication of the report is currently being held up by a dispute over how much of the 480-page public summary should remain classified, but it is expected to be published within weeks.

  1. -US threatened Foley family over Islamic State ransom, slain journalist’s mother says-

    September 12, 2014

    The family of US journalist James Foley – who was kidnapped and killed by the Islamic State – had been “threatened” by the US government with charges of aiding terrorists if they tried to raise funds to pay ransom for him, Foley’s mother told the media.

    Obama administration officials repeatedly warned the family of murdered journalist James Foley that they might face criminal charges for supporting terrorism if they paid a ransom to the Islamic State jihadists who were holding and, ultimately, beheaded their son, his mother and brother said this week.

    “We were told that several times and we took it as a threat and it was appalling,” Foley's mother Diane said in an interview with ABC News.

    “I think our efforts to get Jim freed were an annoyance,” she elaborated in another interview with CNN. “It didn't seem to be in [US] strategic interest, if you will.” [...]
