    CIA thugs used a sledgehammer handle to beat Iraqi captives

    According to this article, from the Denver Post, a closed session of a military hearing in the US has heard that CIA thugs beat their Iraqi captives with sledgehammer handles, and one of their lot would often brag about mistreating captives. How very "civilised":

    "I have no doubts that other government agencies used methods of interrogation that were much worse than what Chief Welshofer used," Cassara said. Later, Pratt testified that the official was mocking the prisoners he was beating. "Well, particularly after the general was killed. I don't remember the exact words, but he was mocking the fact that the general died," Pratt testified. Williams and Welshofer, through their attorneys, had previously denied any wrongdoing.
