Senate To Probe Mohammed’s Treatment

From an outraged Washington Post:

US Senators Lindsay Graham (R), R-SC, and Carl Levin, D-MI, speak to reporters in 2005. Graham and Levin, the two US senators who witnessed the questioning of the suspected mastermind of the September 11 attacks, have urged officials to investigate his allegations of being badly treated.

Senators Urge Inquiry After Mohammed Alleges Abuse

Two senators who observed last week’s closed military proceedings against al-Qaeda leader Khalid Sheik Mohammed called for an investigation into allegations that the accused planner of the Sept. 11 attacks was physically abused while in CIA custody.

Mohammed told the tribunal last Saturday that he had been mistreated during three years in CIA custody before his transfer to Guantanamo Bay, and he submitted a written description of the alleged abuse. The military panel immediately classified the submission and redacted from transcripts any detail of Mohammed’s treatment in the CIA’s secret prison program.

We have officially passed through the looking glass.
