They put a plastic bag over his head so he could not breathe. After his near asphyxiation, they pulled on his genitals and burned him with cigarettes. After they broke his sternum, his torturers put a hood over Abdullah's head and applied his thumbprints to 80 pages of documents, reports AI.

thanks Angie, Petition signed. I hope it prevents his execution. Any confession obtained by torture should not be sanctioned - Not in the USA, not anywhere.

No one should be executed after making confessions under such torture. Is no different when they use to gain the confessions of people that they had on the rack, or those other Medieval little the human being has actually progressed.

Torturing a person into a confession, sound remarkably like our own past American history.

Of course, this results in confessions, as it did with the Church burning 'witches' at the stake, or the beheading of those who disagreed with their so-called beliefs.
I'm certain Christ would have agreed with these practices. Just read your bible.

thx Roxy, no, you're not insane, rather kind and helpful. I will look up take part and yes, I have also noted there is more coverage now about gitmo in the news-is it any wonder? These guys are innocent by a large number and being force fed- that cannot go unnoticed for a long time. Very glad so many HR orgs jumped in here!
