Christina Aguilera Music Used As Torture at Gitmo

Posted on June 14, 2005

It's been confirmed. The music of singer Christina Aguilera was really used as a torture method at Gitmo Camp at Guantanamo Bay. Time magazine obtained the official interrogation logs which lists the torture methods used to extract information from Mohammed al Qahtani, the so-called 20th hijacker.

Dripping Water or Playing Christina Aguilera Music: After the new measures are approved, the mood in al-Qahtani's interrogation booth changes dramatically. The interrogation sessions lengthen. The quizzing now starts at midnight, and when Detainee 063 dozes off, interrogators rouse him by dripping water on his head or playing Christina Aguilera music. According to the log, his handlers at one point perform a puppet show "satirizing the detainee's involvement with al-Qaeda."

Dripping water on the prisoner's head while playing "I'm a Genie in a Bottle"? Puppet shows? Is that really effective? And if the interrogators consider listening to the dulcet tones of Christina Aguilera to be torture, what kind of music do they consider a listening treat?

We consider Christina's music to be a treat. Here's "Genie in a Bottle."
