So here’s a mindfuck for you:

Cookies, not torture, convinced al Qaeda suspect to talk, FBI interrogator says

http://rawstory.com/blog/2009/…

The practice of torturing suspected terrorists received fresh blows Friday after a magazine reported that a key al Qaeda suspect offered useful intelligence after receiving sugar-free cookies.

Ali Soufan, a former FBI interrogator, revealed in an article being released in June that Osama Bin Laden’s bodyguard opened up about the 9/11 terror attacks only after being offered — sugar free cookies.

Bin Laden lieutenant Abu Jandal is a diabetic, Soufan said, and wouldn’t eat sugar cookies he’d been offered.

“Soufan noticed that he didn’t touch any of the cookies that had been served with tea: ‘He was a diabetic and couldn’t eat anything with sugar in it,’ Time’s Bobby Ghosh wrote. “At their next meeting, the Americans brought him some sugar-free cookies, a gesture that took the edge off Abu Jandal’s angry demeanor.

“We had showed him respect, and we had done this nice thing for him,” Soufan told Ghosh. “So he started talking to us instead of giving us lectures.”

Jesus, all it took was cookies?

So you are telling me that instead of sexually abusing them, we should have just broke out boxes of Girl Scout cookies?

Sadly, that seems to have been the answer. I think America way overshoot on the whole anal raping thing, when tea and cookies was all they wanted.

But someone needs to waterboard this guy, he’s always been in a sleeper cell brainwashing our children for years:

    it really IS just that simple.

    treat people with respect…the same way you would like to be treated.

    the ‘golden rule’……

    Torturing him was more fun, and it made somebody feel like a real man…

    Cookies Shmookies.

  1. We always have been. He is the perfect shining example of the gloriously insatiable American Id.

    America!! Fuck Yeah!!! Cookie cookie cookie cookie cookie cookie cookie!!!!

  2. Ticking time bomb.  Jack Bauer adminsters the Twinkie treatment. Hardened terrorist sings like a canary. Bomb does not go off, city saved.  Show gets cancelled due to poor ratings.

  3. And this sounds exactly like the man I knew all those years ago. The fact that the news is all about cookies is beside the point. These people that we are holding are more willing to talk if they know that the interrogators are human beings and not animals bent on torturing somebody. Wouldn’t you feel the same way?

    It comes down to this. We got good intelligence when the prisoners knew the answers to the questions and were well treated. These damnable CIA contractors, on orders from Cheney and the other chickenhawks, were torturing people to establish a link between 9/11 and Iraq — A LINK THAT NEVER EXISTED.

    And no one offered me a cookie to post this.

  4. government and even former 911 commission members coming out and saying 911 was indeed an inside job the key to the entire shitstorm of galactic insanity that is the War Of Terror rests upon the false flag of 911.  This was America’s Reichstag Fire period end of story.  The continued testimony lies in the most excellent work of WeAreChange for their more proprietary meme of asking the definitive pointed questions of our sociopathic “leaders” and then watching all of them slink away seeking solace behind their paid armed goon bodyguards like the snakes they are.  Such things are the real Mastercard moments of this cesspool society we have to eek out an existence in.
