|An interview with Shalal el Kaissi, who has become a symbol of U.S. torture. YOUR TAX DOLLAR AT WORK...They tortured me, they humiliated me, they have destroyed me inside. I want that what has happened to me never happens again, that everyone knows what those months in Abu Ghraib were like. This is my new life: to denounce that which is happening in the Iraqi prisons, to defend the rights of those who are inside of them. Former prisoner number 151716 of the prison of shame speaks. The man who has been recognised in one of the photo-symbols of the violence of Abu Ghraib: the hooded prisoner, standing balanced on a cardboard box, his shoulders to the wall, with his arms opened and the fingers of his hands connected to electrical wires. READ AND WEEP BECAUSE TO DEFEND THIS TORTURE AT ANY LEVEL DEPICTS A CALLOUS SOUL TOO SKILLFUL IN SELF-DELUSION.|
