Springsteen torture at Camp X-Ray
A TERROR suspect freed from Guantanamo Bay has told of cruel and unusual punishment.
Hamed Abderrahman Ahmad, a Spaniard who denies any links with terrorism, said he had to wrap his head in a damp towel to try to muffle loud tapes of Born in the USA.
Mr Ahmad said he was confined to a small cell where the lights were always on and he was forced to listen endlessly to Bruce Springsteen.
"First I spent a month in a cell two metres square that had a roof of sheet iron, with unbearable heat," he said.
"All day they blared patriotic American music. It was Born in the USA. We had to put wet towels on our heads to be able to bear the heat and not hear the music . . .
"Later they put us in even smaller cells."
The idiots blasting this music, of course, don't even have a clue what's in the lyrics to "Born in the U.S.A."
