Bin Laden Driver ‘Abused’ By Close Female

From a highly incensed Washington Post:

Detainee Describes Treatment

GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba, July 15 — Salim Ahmed Hamdan, an alleged al-Qaeda driver who faces a historic military trial next week, testified Tuesday that a female interrogator elicited information from him using sexually suggestive behavior that he called “improper.”

Hamdan, a former driver for Osama bin Laden who is accused in a terrorism conspiracy, told a military court that during questioning in 2002, a female interrogator “came close to me, she came very close, with her whole body towards me. I couldn’t do anything. I was afraid of the soldiers.”

“Did she touch your thigh?” asked Hamdan’s attorney Charles Swift.

“Yes. . . . I said to her, ‘What do you want?’ ” Hamdan said at a pretrial hearing. “She said, ‘I want you to answer all of my questions.’ ”

“Did you answer all of her questions after that?” Swift asked. Hamdan said he did.

Hamdan’s attorneys are seeking to persuade a judge to throw out incriminating statements he allegedly made to interrogators at the U.S. military prison here, arguing that they were obtained through coercive tactics

Hamdan has previously alleged in court filings that he was subjected to sexual humiliation, but had not testified publicly about it until Tuesday. His depiction of the interrogations provided another glimpse of the treatment of some of the approximately 265 detainees here, who include al-Qaeda leaders accused of planning the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Hamdan seemed a bit dazed when he arrived in court amid heavy security. Wearing a beige sport coat, white pants, sandals and a white headdress, he walked slowly to the stand, escorted by military guards, and refused to raise his hand when he was sworn in…

These terrorists are such delicate flowers. It really is to laugh.

Of course the real joke is the way our media takes these claims seriously.

But we know why that is.
