Prisoners exposed to radiation, amazing, my husband as a member of one of the intelligence forces was exposed to radiation for one solid year, and I have not even been able to prove his presence at this area.. And this was when John F. Kennedy was president. We have been using, what another country would call inconvenience for years to keep our country safe. End up in a mexican jail, turkey jail, or any other country and find out what torture really is.

re: "100 Days" presser


Mr. President:

The Senate Armed Services Committee report on "enhanced interrogation techniques" used at Guantanamo stated at least twice that detainees were subject to "induced physical weakness and exhaustion."

The report also stated that detainees were subject to "physiological and psychological pressures" and "environmental manipulation."

Has your administration inquired as to what "induced" these effects...

...and whether detainees were exposed to microwave radiation devices such as so-called "directed energy weapon" discharges... or any other type of radiation, including X-rays, gamma rays, sonic waves, or laser "dazzlers"?

If detainees were exposed to radiation, does that not constitute "torture" and "cruel and unusual punishment" in and of itself?

OR (if links are corrupted):
