In honor of “Zero Dark Thirty”, that bastion of revisionism, that states torture either led to Bin Laden, and / or that it was necessary, let me give you a three hour rebuttal that will be seen many years from now as the time when our darkest moment in modern history as a nation was exposed. Torture, of every type that was used in an “institutionalized setting”, originated from S.E.R.E. (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escap) and the reverse-engineering of techniques used to train our military to resist torture, and turned into techniques taught by S.E.R.E. personel to CIA, Military, FBI and others to torture.
This is very personal to me, as I served 22 years in the Air Force, and after telling my family about where torture originated from, was called a Liar, and the one who said it (My son-in-law) hid from me the fact he was entering SERE as an INSTRUCTOR. His lie was supported by my daughter, and led to my loss of my grandchildren for 4 years now…
I was tortured for almost 3 years by the FBI and their friends only
because 85 years old man, Roland Sibens(chicago) convinced them that I
am a terrorist. I was tortured for working on my prosthetic legs in
the basement. I done absolutely nothing illegal or wrong. They thought
that in theory it is possible to hide bomb in them. They saw an
opportunity to get famous, so they were trying to torture me till I
sign their insane story. They tortured me using more than 100
different torturing methods and trust to me waterboarding is not how
they torture nowadays. I dont know where to find justice.
I think that after 9/11 things got out of control. Freedom fighters
became tyrants. In 1945, most Germans had an opportunity to learn about Nazis death
camps. I hope that one day American citizens will get chance to learn about people
like me, who were tortured with no reason for years.
