In another torture scandal breaking, leaked cables expose that CIA employees stationed at a US installation in Thailand where Muslim prisoners have been tortured have been writing gay erotica about torturing prisoners in homosexual ways:
A declassified cable detailing torture at a CIA blacksite in Thailand operated by now-CIA Director Gina Haspel employed hokey language perhaps better suited for an erotic novel – as opposed to documenting the agency’s actions.
The bizarre literary work, one of 11 cables obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by the National Security Archive, a research institute at George Washington University, describes a “catlike” linguist and “hulking, heavily muscled guards.” Just to be clear: The December 2002 cable details the “enhanced” interrogation of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a suspected al-Qaeda terrorist – not a scene from ‘50 Shades of Grey.’
“HVTI and linguist … strode, catlike, into the well-lit confines of the cell at 0902 hrs… deftly removed the subject’s black hood with a swipe, paused, and in a deep, measured voice said that subject – having ‘calmed down’ after his (staged) run-in with his hulking, heavily muscled guards the previous day – should reveal what subject had done to vex his guards to the point of rage,” the titillating CIA cable, documenting the daily shenanigans at a secret torture dungeon, reads.
“Subject, blinking in the fluorescent light, did a few characteristically flicks of his tongue, reacquired his nervous tick, and in a frail, squeaky voice, replied: ‘Nothing.’”
The report “marked a descent into language right out of spy novels or the ‘Shades of Grey’ series to describe potentially criminal behavior by CIA employees,” the National Security Archive noted in its annotation of the declassified cable.
While it’s not clear who authored this delicious morsel of purple prose, it’s likely that Haspel – believed to have been chief of base at the time – read and signed off on the cable before it was dispatched.
Haspel’s nomination to head the CIA was opposed by human rights groups and lawmakers who argued that her involvement in the CIA’s clandestine torture program disqualified her from leading the agency. Dubbed the “torture queen” and “bloody Gina” by US media outlets, Haspel vowed that the CIA would not engage in torture under her watch – although declined to describe such techniques as “immoral.”
During her contentious nomination hearing, Haspel argued that torture had provided “valuable intelligence,” but the de-classified cables reveal that al-Nashiri had provided “no actionable information.” He is currently being held at the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, nearly 16 years after he was captured in October 2002, in the United Arab Emirates.

For those who may question the cable, one can read it here and see photos of the transmissions:
It has been known for years that the CIA tortured people, but this cable reveals what already had been revealed with the Abu Ghraib scandal in 2004. The torture was sexualized, and specifically was homosexual in its nature:
The photographs tell it all. In one, Private England, a cigarette dangling from her mouth, is giving a jaunty thumbs-up sign and pointing at the genitals of a young Iraqi, who is naked except for a sandbag over his head, as he masturbates. Three other hooded and naked Iraqi prisoners are shown, hands reflexively crossed over their genitals. A fifth prisoner has his hands at his sides. In another, England stands arm in arm with Specialist Graner; both are grinning and giving the thumbs-up behind a cluster of perhaps seven naked Iraqis, knees bent, piled clumsily on top of each other in a pyramid. There is another photograph of a cluster of naked prisoners, again piled in a pyramid. Near them stands Graner, smiling, his arms crossed; a woman soldier stands in front of him, bending over, and she, too, is smiling. Then, there is another cluster of hooded bodies, with a female soldier standing in front, taking photographs. Yet another photograph shows a kneeling, naked, unhooded male prisoner, head momentarily turned away from the camera, posed to make it appear that he is performing oral sex on another male prisoner, who is naked and hooded.
Such dehumanization is unacceptable in any culture, but it is especially so in the Arab world. Homosexual acts are against Islamic law and it is humiliating for men to be naked in front of other men, Bernard Haykel, a professor of Middle Eastern studies at New York University, explained. “Being put on top of each other and forced to masturbate, being naked in front of each other—it’s all a form of torture,” Haykel said.
Two Iraqi faces that do appear in the photographs are those of dead men. There is the battered face of prisoner No. 153399, and the bloodied body of another prisoner, wrapped in cellophane and packed in ice. There is a photograph of an empty room, splattered with blood. (source)
One of the infamous Abu Ghraib photos. The men here were forced to pile on top of each other naked, in one of many different forms of homosexual torture used,
Just look at the language used in the text:
“Deep measured voice”
“Flicks of his tongue”
“Hulking, muscled guards”
It reminds one of the infamous “counter-jihad” novel by Bruce Bawer that was reviewed by Robert Spencer, and was little more than a homosexual erotica novel.
The Bible states that homosexuality is the manifestation of serious sin, and it is one of the reasons why it is only one of fours sin in the Old Testament that “cry out to Heaven for vengeance.” Homosexuality is a manifestation of power through dominance over another by the abuse of sexual actions, for far from being life-giving, it perverts sexuality into a vampiric act where one person takes from another. It is why homosexuality throughout history has been associated with hideous actions, such as torture and cannibalism, because just as an amoeba engulfs its food particle before ingesting it, so does homosexuality involve the consumption of one party by the other.
When one sees cables as these, and given the history of Abu Ghraib, one must wonder not only what programs exist, but more about the people who run these programs. From what limited information has been exposed, it suggests that the heinous torture, interrogations, “enhanced” interrogations, and other forms of sanctioned abuse being done in the name of “democracy” are being perpetrated by homosexuals and those who would support them.
Years ago, the Stanford Prison Experiment showed how power and perceived power can lead average people to perpetrating serious abuses. As man lives in a post-Original Sin world, the potential for good and evil resides in all. If that already is so, and given that the LGBT already has embraced serious sin, it is not a surprise that adding power over men’s lives would only fuel an already dangerous concoction.
