http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nat...guantanamo-detainees-report-article-1.1088762 To sum up the article, an Al Jazeera documentary about Guantanamo Bay reveals that music like AC/DC, Metallica, Enimem, and children's music like Barney and Sesame Street were used to break detainees down to reveal information about terrorist activities. Which leads me to the question. What music could be used to torture you? Me, personally, I'm going with J-Pop. I totally hate that shit. Here's the article: [h=1]â€˜Sesame Streetâ€™ songs and heavy metal blasted to torture Guantanamo detainees: report [/h] A new documentary released by Al Jazeera exposes the use of childrenâ€™s songs and heavy metal music to torture prisoners at Guantanamo Bay â€” a tactic that came about not long after President George W. Bush created the camp to detain prisoners in the â€œwar on terrorâ€ against Al Qaeda. â€œSesame Streetâ€ songwriter Christopher Cerf spearheaded the film after discovering songs he wrote to teach kids how to read and write were being used as weapons of war. The report has launched the controversial interrogation method back into the spotlight. According to the documentary, prisoners were strapped to chairs and played music â€” Metallica, AC/DC, Eminem, Barney and others â€” at loud volumes for hours or days on end. Pentagon spokesman Capt. John Kirby told reporters Thursday that the military uses music â€œas a disincentive,â€ but said itâ€™s not torture. â€œItâ€™s done in a measured way, in keeping with our obligation and commitment to treating detainees humanely,â€ Kirby told the press, declining to comment on what specific music was played or if the method is still used today. A 2008 Associated Press report detailed how loud and repetitive music was used to â€œto create fear, disorient . . . and prolong capture shockâ€ at Guantanamo Bay and other prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan. The music drove some prisoners literally mad, screaming and banging their heads against the wall, according to the report. Others said they would have tried to commit suicide if there was a way to do so. Songs like Eminemâ€™s â€œWhite Americaâ€ and Bruce Springsteenâ€™s â€œBorn in the USAâ€ were chosen, AP reported. A U.S. Psy Ops spokesperson told the BBC in 2003 that â€œculturally offensiveâ€ music was used to break a prisoner. According to â€œSongs of War,â€ CIA medical experts drew up guidelines setting the permitted volume for interrogations using sound. Music as loud as a jackhammer could be played for two hours, for example. The guidelines were made public after a human rights group fought and won in court, but the majority of the document was blacked out. When the issue first surfaced in 2008, music groups banded together to demand the government stop using their songs as weapons. But Thomas Keenan, director of the Human Rights Project at Bard College, tells Al Jazeera that the same reason people love music is why itâ€™s an effective tool. â€œIt is musicâ€™s capacity to take over your mind and invade your inner experience that makes itso terrifying,â€ he said.
