We do not condone torture. I have never ordered torture. I will never order torture. The values of this country are such that torture is not a part of our soul and our being.
Ethiopian Binyam Mohamed, kidnapped in Pakistan and turned over to the CIA:
One of them took my penis in his hand and began to make a cut…. There was blood all over. ‘If I told you I was going to teach you – I told you I was going to teach you who is the man,’ ‘Marwan’ eventually said. They cut all over my private parts. One of them said it would be better just to cut it off, as it would only breed terrorists. I suffered the razor treatment about once a month for the remaining time I was in Morocco.
