"A liar can be scared into telling the truth,
as an honest man can be tortured into telling a lie."

William Faulkner

"In the dog two conditions were found to produce pathological disturbances by functional interference, namely, an unusually acute clashing of the excitatory and inhibitory processes, and the influence of strong and extraordinary stimuli.

In man precisely similar conditions constitute the usual causes of nervous and psychic disturbances.

Conditions productive of extreme excitation, such as intense grief or bitter insults, often lead, when the natural reactions are inhibited by the necessary restraint, to profound and prolonged loss of balance in nervous and psychic activity."

Ivan Pavlov

Prisons were originally built to house people
that are a threat to society, not to be houses of torture

"You can get anyone to confess to anything if the torture is bad enough." - Bob Baer, CIA officer

Many torturers adopted the posture of a doctor or surgeon and imagine that their electroshock and other torments are therapeutic - that they are administering medicine to their prisoners - dirty diseased golem.

Captain Ian Fishback, of the Army's 82nd Airborne Division, witnessed detainees in Fallouja being tortured. A sergeant reported to Human Rights Watch that "we would give them blows to the head, chest, legs and stomach, pull them down and kick dirt on them." Another sergeant witnessed a soldier tell a prisoner "to grab a pole and to bend over" and then he "broke the guy's leg with a mini Louisville Slugger." As well all three witnessed kicks to prisoner's faces, chests and abdomens as well as chemical compounds poured onto eyes and skin.

Captain Ian Fishback stated that torture was being meted out at the behest of military intelligence to soften prisoners up for interrogation while Donald Henry Rumsfeld was telling the Congressional Armed Services Committee that the military was obeying the rules of the Geneva Convention.

"I was immediately concerned that the army was taking part in a lie to the Congress, which would have been a clear violation of the Constitution.

"Enhanced" interrogation technique that violated the Geneva Convention found their way into army systems.

The problem was systemic, and it was widespread." - Captain Ian Fishback

War on terror is a witness protection program for government felons

"One of the Most Severely Traumatized Individuals I Have Ever Seen"

1996 to 2001 Parents Television Council estimates, there are 102 torture scenes on televison.

2002 to 2005 Parents Television Council estimates there are 624 torture scenes on televison, and the torturers are increasingly heroes rather than villains.

The hit Fox action drama "24" featured 67 torture scenes in it's first 5 seasons and most of those depicted torture being used by "heroic" American counter-terrorist agents.

Alberto Gonzales, as attorney general, publicly promotes the use of torture.

"I'm at a complete loss to see how any society that considers itself to be evolved and civilized can entertain the thought of any sort of torture of another human being." - Eleanor Jackson 10/06

2001 George Walker Bush signs a secret unnumbered Executive Order on September 17, 2001, on the advice of Alberto Gonzales, that authorized the use of 'enhanced interrogation techniques'.

Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi, an alleged high-ranking al-Qa`ida official, is captured in Pakistan.

George Tenet director of the CIA took over Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi interrogation.

Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi was 'water-boarded' then forced to remain standing overnight in a cold cell, where he was repeatedly soaked with icy water.

Then interrogators threatened to kill his family.

Under torture, Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi, 29 , finally broke.

Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi claimed to be a "senior terrorist operative" who was offered biological/chemical weapons training for al-Qa`ida associates in Iraq.

Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi was desperate to stop the water-boarding torture so he imagined "information."

A Defense Intelligence Agency memo warned that Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi 's information was "misleading as he may be describing scenarios that he knows will retain interrogators interests."

2004 "We have long since made clear that a state of war is not a blank check for the president when it comes to the rights of American citizens." - Sandra Day O'Connor, Hamdi vs. Rumsfeld

2008 CIA director Michael Hayden, during a Senate intelligence hearing on Feb. 5, 2008, admits waterboarding was used in 2002 and 2003.

"It was used on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. It was used on Abu Zubaydah. And it was used on (Abd al-Rahim al-) Nashiri." - Michael Hayden


"The individual is a creation of natural social forces
and can be 'deforged' by them
." - Simone Weil

The boom and bust of the CIA secret torture sites

Render to Caesar, Extraordinarily

Justice Department releases 2005 legal memos that detailed the use of waterboarding in 2002 and 2003.

Waterboarding was used on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed 183 times and on Zubaydah at least 83 times.

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed claims he gave false information to the CIA even after undergoing punishing bouts of enhanced interrogations.

"I make up stories." - Khalid Sheikh Mohammed

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed "admitted" to US Navy Commander Alphonso Doss' team at Guantanamo that he was one of the masterminds behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

"The self-incrimination of Khalid Sheik Mohammed stands today as the only evidence the US government has that Muslim terrorists pulled off 911.

Khalid Sheik Mohammed outwitted all 16 US intelligence agencies along with those of all US allies or puppets, including Mossad.

Khalid Sheik Mohammed outwitted the National Security Council, Dick Cheney, the Pentagon, the State Department, NORAD, the US Air Force, and Air Traffic Control.

Khalid Sheik Mohammed caused Airport Security to fail four times in one morning.

Khalid Sheik Mohammed caused the state-of-the-art air defenses of the Pentagon to fail, allowing a hijacked airliner, which was off course all morning while the US Air Force, for the first time in history, was unable to get aloft intercepter aircraft, to crash into the Pentagon.

If Khalid Sheik Mohammed has these superhuman capabilities, how did the incompetent Americans catch him?

This guy is a patsy tortured into confession in order to keep the American naifs believing the governments conspiracy theory. What is going on here is that the US government has to bring the 911 mystery to an end." - Paul Craig Roberts, The Road to Armageddon: The Insane Drive for American Hegemony Threatens Life on Earth

Khalid Sheik Mohammed was the man found to be officially responsible by the US governmnet for the planning and execution of 911, not Saddam Hussein or Usamah bin Mohammad bin Laden.

George Walker Bush admits to authorizing torture

Alphonso Doss was found dead by an employee of the Astoria Hotel at 150 Park Avenue, Orange Park who found the body about 8:45 a.m. Feb. 12, 2014.

Media reports of his death, which appeared two weeks later, suggested Alphonso Doss had substance abuse problems.

"I was a big supporter of waterboarding. I was a big supporter of the enhanced interrogation techniques. I signed off on it; others did, as well." - Richard Bruce Cheney

Richard Bruce Cheney personally authorized the torture of 33 suspected terrorist detainees and approved the waterboarding of three.

On March 8, 2008, George Walker Bush vetoed congressional legislation that called for a specific ban on waterboarding and other abusive "enhanced" interrogation technique, including stripping prisoners naked, subjecting them to extreme cold and staging mock executions.

"Yeah, we waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed." - George Walker Bush

Japanese soldiers were prosecuted for the war crime of waterboarding American soldiers during World War II.

"Waterboarding as been referred to as "simulated drowning." Since the technique involves filling a person's lungs with water, it is plainly no simulation but is in fact drowning. This particular form of torture sometimes results in death, and the cause of death is drowning, not simulated drowning. Victims do not simulate death. They die, pure and simple." - James Caufield

"Consistent with previous historical prosecution of torture as a war crime, any member of the George Walker Bush administration who has either participated in or facilitated waterboarding should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law." - Stephen Burns

The Abu Ghraib prison torture scandal sheds light on the common reality of American incarceration. Abu Ghraib mirrors the American prison system - underfunded, inadequately supervised, lacking civilian oversight, unaccountable and tolerant of inmate abuse.

2009 FOIA request reveals at least 92 "enhanced interrogations" had been videotaped.

One of the 'enhanced interrogation techniques' is the 'Palestine hanging' were the victim is hung from the wall or ceiling by his wrists which are hand cuffed behind his back.

The results are nearly the same as crucifixion, Jesus' fate.

Another 'enhanced interrogation technique' is 'water boarding', first used in the Spanish Inquistion, were the victim is repeatedly dunked under water and his/her lungs are filled to the point of drowning.

Lawrence Wilkerson, a top aide to former secretary of state Colin L. Powell, claimed the office of Richard Bruce Cheney, aides of Donald Henry Rumsfeld and others argued "the president of the United States is all powerful and as commander in chief the president of the United States can do anything he damn well pleases."

In July 2008 Sweden agreed to pay a $502,000 in compensation to Muhammed Alzery. Sweden handed over Muhammed Alzery to CIA agents who transported him to Egypt where he was tortured at the CIA's behest.

"There is torture of mind as well as body; the will is as much affected by fear as by force." - Justice John Paul Stevens quoting Justice Felix Frankfurter

Jose Padilla, an American born citizen of Puerto Rican descent, is held in solitary confinement for three years without charges being filed.

Jose Padilla, injected with what he identified as a PCP/LSD cocktail, ends up spending 1,307 days under sensory deprivation conditions.

Jose Padilla had no history of mental illness when ordered detained as a enemy combatant by presidential decree.

Jose Padilla's lawyers claimed that interrogation methods included the use of psychotropic drugs and other forms of torture.

Jose Padilla's 'treatment' has been classified as a state secret.

"I can't talk about what happened because it is classified." - Jose Padilla

Psychological tests suggest Jose Padilla suffered brain damage and he exhibits symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

"Mr. Padilla shows extreme anxiety. He is fearful of his time in the brig. Everything that he talks about is with regard to the time at the brig, no other time point." - Patricia Zapf, psychologist

"People who have known Jose Padilla and loved him before his military detention don't feel they can even bear to see him because he is so clearly mentally ill."- Stuart Grassian, psychiatrist

The legal strategy used was designed to make it possible to suspend the Constitutional Rights of American citizens by presidential decree.

A precedent was set that future presidents can use to suspend the Constitutional Rights of any American citizen.

Three purposeful constitutional violations occurred:

The writ of habeas corpus was suspended even though America was not being invaded nor was a rebellion taking place.

Jose was denied a speedy trial.

Jose suffered cruel and unusual punishment

What was Jose' crime ?

Jose was arrested for 'plotting' to detonate a radioactive 'dirty bomb'.

Then Jose 'plotted' to blow up apartment complexes with natural gas.

Finally Jose was indicted and convicted of conspiracy to 'murder, kidnap and maim' people overseas after a confession.

"The jury did seem to be an oddly cohesive group. On the last day of trial before the Fourth of July holiday, jurors arranged to dress in outfits so that each row in the jury box was its own patriotic color "red, white or blue."- Washington Post

2008 A FOIA request finds the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) cannot locate recording of the final interrogation of Jose Padilla which includes his confession.

*27,000 respondents in 25 countries were asked which position was closer to their own views:
  • Clear rules against torture should be maintained because any use of torture is immoral and will weaken international human rights standards against torture.
  • Terrorists pose such an extreme threat that governments should now be allowed to use some degree of torture if it may gain information that saves innocent lives.
Source: BBC/Globescan/PIPA 2006

A majority of Jewish respondents in Israel, 53%, favor allowing governments to use some degree of torture to obtain information from those in custody, while 39% want clear rules against it. The Islamic and Christian respondents skew the overall Israel number down.

"Various sources report that methods of torture in Israeli prisons include: Prisoners are forced to stand for long periods of time. Prisoners are refused toilet privileges. Prisoners have thick bags put over their heads and their arms are tied behind their backs with handcuffs designed so that any movement increases the pressure on their wrists. Prisoners have their stomachs stomped on and are repeatedly kicked like animals. Prisoners' testicles are squashed and they are beaten upon their genitals. Prisoners' hair are pulled; their heads beaten against the wall; and they are left hanging heads down. A stick is pushed up the anus of a prisoner. Cigarette butts are put out on a prisoner's bare skin. Relatives are brought in, subjected to abuse and even threatened with rape in front of prisoners. Ball point pens are forced into the penis of prisoners. Prisoners are kept in cells 28 inches wide by 6 feet long for weeks at a time." - Jack Berstein


Guantanamo Bay

Guantanamo prosecutors apologize for comparing Indians to al Qaida

"I was the chief prosecutor for the military tribunals at Guantanamo.

I concluded that full, fair and open trials were not possible under the current system.

I resigned because I believe even the most perfect trial in history will be viewed with skepticism, if it is conducted behind closed doors." - Colonel Morris D. Davis

"As an American with more than 25 years of commissioned military service, I am absolutely astounded at the dearth of leadership shown by the military throughout its chain of command.

The inability of these enlisted personnel and officers to follow long established guidelines and the service's own code of conduct is an insult to every person who has ever worn the American uniform.

To the officers especially I say, "Whatever happened to the simple notion of just doing the right thing?"

As citizens we must not allow this type of misconduct." - Carl Schellenberg

January 2002     Isolation is torture !

"I am writing from the darkness of the US detention camp at Guantanamo in the hope that I can make our voices heard.

I was picked up in Pakistan, blindfolded, shackled, drugged and loaded onto a plane flown to Cuba.

When we got off the plane in Guantanamo, we did not know where we were.

They took us to Camp X-Ray and locked us in cages with two buckets - one empty and one filled with water.

We were to urinate in one and wash in the other.

At Guantanamo, soldiers assaulted me, placed me in solitary confinement, threatened to kill me and threatened to kill my daughter.

They told me I will stay in Cuba for the rest of my life.

They have deprived me of sleep, forced me to listen to extremely loud music and shined intense lights in my face.

They placed me in cold rooms for hours without food, drink or the ability to go to the bathroom and wash for prayers.

They wrapped me in the Israel flag and told me there is a holy war between the Cross and the Star of David on one hand and the Crescent on the other; and beaten me unconscious.

Once, in Camp Delta, a soldier apologized to me and offered me hot chocolate and cookies.

What I write here is not what my imagination fancies or my insanity dictates.

These are verifiable facts witnessed by other detainees, representatives of the Red Cross, interrogators and translators." - Jumah al-Dossari

During the course of the continuous war on terror at least 780 prisoners have now been incarcerated at Guantanamo.

2007 David Hicks, an Australian, plead guilty to providing material support to the terrorists in exchange for being released to Australian authorities.

In February 2015 an appeals court threw out his conviction.

The court found that the activity for which Hicks was convicted was not an offense triable by military commission at the time he was caught.

2011 Noor Uthman Mohammed plead guilty to providing material support for terror in exchange for his potential testimony against other captives and certain release from Guantánamo.

He admitted to being a small-arms and artillery weapons instructor at an Afghan training camp in the '90s.

Marine Maj. Gen. Vaughn A. Ary, threw out the case "in the interests of justice and under the rule of law."

Civilian courts have ruled that providing material support for terror was not a legitimate war crime for actions that occurred before the adoption of the Military Commissions Act of 2006.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
