See a real Torture Manual featuring a Baathist looking torturer, as found at an Al-Qaeda torture and murder house where US soldiers freed five Iraqis who had been held and tortured. It’s at the Smoking Gun. You can stand looking at it, and should. The torture instruction cartoons are gruesome but the photos of the torture victims are not excessively icky. I’ve seen worse in horror movies. It’s important to remember the goals and methods used by the Jihadist assassins, for they are what the global Counterjihad is all about.
Compare it to Abu Ghraib and Guantonomo. Were Abu Ghraib or Guantonomo prisoners showing off any bloody purple wounds? Which one is torture?
