This is the Executive Summary of INQUIRY INTO THE TREATMENT
OF DETAINEES IN U.S. CUSTODY | REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON
ARMED SERVICES | UNITED STATES SENATE | llOTH CONGRESS 2nd
Session | NOVEMBER 20, 2008 released 04 22 09.  It begins
with what appears to be an ironic epigrah: but is a lie.
`
"What sets us apart from our enemies in this fight...is how
we behave.  In everything we do, we must observe the stan-
dards and values that dictate that we treat noncombatants
and detainees with dignity and respect.  While we are war-
riors, we are also all human beings."
`
--General David Petraeus, May 10,2007
`
`
Now we get to the meat --the rotten meat.
`
`
"The collection of timely and accurate intelligence is criti-
cal to the safety of U.S. personnel deployed abroad and to
the security of the American people here at home.  The me-
thods by which we elicit intelligence information from de-
tainees in our custody affect not only the reliability of
that information, but our broader efforts to win hearts and
minds and attract allies to our side."
`
`
The rotten meat begins with the lie that there was or is an
AQ; and with the lie that AQ and the Taliban (the troops of
The Emirate of Afghanistan) are equivalents; and with mis-
cellaneous lies that seem to fit in with these main lies.
`
`
"AI Qaeda and Taliban terrorists are taught to expect Amer-
icans [= Superpower troops] to abuse them. They are recruit-
ed based on false propaganda that says the United States [=
The Superpower] is out to destroy Islam.
`
Treating detainees harshly only reinforces that distorted
view, increases resistance to cooperation [= collaboration],
and creates new enemies.  In fact, the April 2006 National
Intelligence Estimate 'Trends in Global Terrorism: Implica-
tions for the United States' cited 'pervasive anti U.S.
sentiment among most Muslims' as an underlying factor fuel-
ing the spread of the global jihadist movement."
`
`
Not just "most Muslims," but most people in the world know
well the nature of The Superpower and the aims of its
`
DECLARATION OF WORLD $LAVERY,
`
which it began to write in blood on August 6, 1945.
`
`
"Former Navy General Counsel Alberto Mora testified to the
Senate Armed Services Committee in June 2008 that 'there are
serving U.S. flag-rank officers who maintain that the first
and second identifiable causes of U. S. combat deaths in
Iraq --as judged by their effectiveness in recruiting insur-
gent fighters into combat-- are, respectively the symbols of
Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.'
`
The abuse of detainees in U.S. custody cannot simply be at-
tributed to the actions of 'a few bad apples' acting on
their own.  The fact is that senior officials in the United
States government [= The Superpower State] solicited in-
formation on how to use aggressive techniques, redefined the
law to create the appearance of their legality, and authoriz-
ed their use against detainees.  Those efforts damaged our
ability to collect accurate intelligence that could save
lives, strengthened the hand of our enemies [= the peoples
of the world], and compromised our [duh] moral authority.
This report is a product ofthe Committee's inquiry into how
those unfortunate results came about."
`
`
Redefined law to create the appearance OF legality?
`
TO LIE TO THEMSELVES
`
TO LIE TO "OUR BOYS"
`
TO LIE TO THE EVIL PEOPLE ANXIOUS FOR COMFORT
`
`
"Presidential Order Opens the Door to Considering Aggressive
Techniques
`
On February 7,2002, President Bush signed a memorandum sta-
ting that the Third Geneva Convention did not apply to the
conflict with [duh] al Qaeda and concluding that Taliban [=
troops of The Emirate of Afghanistan] detainees were not
entitled to prisoner of war status or the legal protections
afforded by the Third Geneva Convention.  The President's
order closed off application of Common Article 3 of the Gene-
va Conventions, which would have afforded minimum standards
for humane treatment, to [duh] al Qaeda or Taliban detain-
ees.  While the President's order stated that, as 'a matter
of [duh] policy, the United States Armed Forces shall con-
tinue to treat detainees humanely and, to the [duh] extent
appropriate and consistent with military necessity, in a
manner consistent with the [duh] principles of the Geneva
Conventions,' the decision to replace well established [?]
military doctrine, i.e., legal compliance with the Geneva
Conventions, with a [duh] policy subject to interpretation,
impacted the treatment of detainees in U.S. custody.
`
In December 2001, more than a month before the President
signed his memorandum, the Department of Defense (DoD)
General Counsel's Office had already solicited information
on detainee 'exploitation' from the Joint Personnel Recov-
ery Agency (JPRA), an agency whose expertise was in train-
ing American personnel [= Superpower troops] to withstand
interrogation techniques considered illegal under the Geneva
Conventions."
`
`
NOTE:  During The Superpower's war of aggression against the
Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea a number of GIs were
captured.  After learning what the war was really about,
some of them issued statements denouncing Superpower imper-
ialism.  This caused great angst among those in charge of
The Superpower's war.  They attempted to lie their way out:
`
1) it's not the lowly Koreans but the big bad Chinese reds
who are applying brainwashing-by-torture
`
2) that torture is so powerful that our boys don't stand a
chance
`
3) therfore don't even think about [= which is the ultimate
brainwashing!] Superpower imperialsm, or about its war of
aggression in Korea.
`
These lies also created a bureaucrat's paradise...
`
`
"JPRA is the DoD agency that oversees military Survival Eva-
sion Resistance and Escape (SERE) training. During the re-
sistance phase of SERE training, U.S. military personnel are
are exposed to physical and psychological pressures (SERE
techniques) designed to simulate conditions to which they
might be subject if taken prisoner by enemies that did not
abide by the Geneva Conventions.  As one JPRA instructor ex-
plained, SERE training is 'based on illegal exploitation
(under the rules listed in the 1949 Geneva Convention Rela-
tive to the Treatment of Prisoners of War) of prisoners over
the last 50 years."  The techniques used in SERE school,
based, in part, on Chinese Communist techniques used during
the [Superpower's] Korean war to elicit false confessions,
include stripping students of their clothing, placing them in
stress positions, putting hoods over their heads, disrupting
their sleep, treating them like animals, subjecting them to
loud music and flashing lights, and exposing them to extreme
temperatures.  [Wow, just like Waco!]  It can also include
face and body slaps and until recently, for some who attend-
ed the Navy's SERE school, it included waterboarding.
`
Typically, those who play the part of interrogators in SERE
school neither are trained interrogators nor are they quali-
fied to be.  These role players are not trained to obtain
reliable intelligence information from detainees.  Their job
is to train our personnel to resist providing reliable in-
formation to our enemies.  As the Deputy Commander for the
Joint Forces Command (JFCOM), JPRA's higher headquarters,
put it: "the expertise ofJPRA lies in training personnel how
to respond and resist interrogations --not in how to conduct
interrogations.'  Given JPRA's role and expertise, the re-
quest from the DoD General Counsel's office was unusual.  In
fact, the Committee is not aware of any similar request pri-
or to December 2001.  But while it may have been the first, 
that was not the last time that a senior government official
contacted JPRA for advice on using SERE methods offensively.
In fact, the call from the DoD General Counsel's office
marked just the beginning of JPRA's support of U.S. govern-
ment interrogation efforts."
`
`
To be continued.
