...the HOR-ROR...

The BBC is reporting that the Americans are at it again - mercilessly torturing the "innocent detainees" of Guantanamo Bay. Even despite the panty-waist PC strictures placed on interrogations, the evil Americans have found a way to subvert the law and *gasp* horribly scar the gentle souls of the Muslim prisoners!!!

Pakistani officials say they are "deeply dismayed" over reports that the Koran was desecrated at the US detention facility in Guantanamo Bay.

The latest edition of the American Newsweek magazine said such tactics were used to rattle suspects.

"Rattle the suspects"? Wow - I bet crucial information just started POURING out of them once they were "rattled"! Who could possibly withstand such powerful interrogation techniques?!

It says that US personnel on one occasion flushed a copy of Islam's most holy book "down the toilet".

Ohhhhh...the HOR-ROR!

Pakistan was also concerned about "the highly objectionable and regrettable treatment meted out to the detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention centre".

Mr Jilani said the reported act of sacrilege had shocked people of every faith around the world.

Yeah, we sure "meted out" some regrettable treatment. How will those Muslim men ever survive this attack on their delicate sensibilities? And how will people of other faiths from around the world contain their shock?! It's an escalating tragedy!

"The government of Pakistan condemns the incident and demands that an inquiry should be conducted to bring to justice the perpetrators of this shameful act," he said.

Yes, an inquiry is in order - with lots and lots of bureaucratic paperwork for everyone! Let's pretend there's no War on Terror, and let's forget the backlog of prisoners still to be questioned, so we can focus all our resources on investigating this heinous episode of grisly torture!! I agree - paperwork - we need more paperwork!!!

Mr Dost also said inmates' beards were shaved and the prisoners were shouted at during interrogations.

The tragedy abounds...ceaseless horror...
