Iran Diplomat: CIA Drilled Holes In Foot

From the terrorists’ mouthpiece Al Jazeera:


Iran offers ‘proof’ of CIA torture

April 11, 2007

Iranian state television has shown officials from the International Committee of the Red Cross examining an Iranian diplomat who has accused the CIA of torturing him while he was detained in Iraq.

Jalal Sharafi was shown in a hospital bed being examined by Peter Stocker from the ICRC and the Iraqi ambassador in footage broadcast on Wednesday.

During the examination, the voice of a doctor could be heard describing how Sharafi – formerly the second-most senior official in Iran’s embassy in Baghdad – had been beaten with a cable during his detention.

After his visit to the diplomat, Stocker told The Associated Press that he saw wounds on Sharafi’s body that “were several weeks old”, but said he did not know how the injuries occurred.

“I cannot say who did it and where it happened,” the ICRC official said. “I can only say that it happened during his detention.”

Stocker was accompanied to the hospital by Majid Sheikh, the Iraqi ambassador to Iran.

Earlier in the week, Sharafi’s Iranian doctors had reported that holes had been drilled into his foot, but the TV images were not clear enough to indicate whether the small, red marks on his foot were indeed holes.

Doctors also reported earlier that he had suffered a broken nose, serious injuries to his back, bleeding in his digestive system, and damage to his ears.

None of these injuries has been independently verified, nor were they discernible from the TV footage

Isn’t it funny how nobody ever heard of using power tools on people until the Iraqi Muslims started doing it to each other.
