LEAKED: 35 Kinds of torture approved by the Trump administration
By Christopher R Rice
CIA director Mike Pompeo was “blindsided” by an executive order that opens the door for American intelligence agencies to resume waterboarding and other “enhanced interrogation techniques” at newly reopened CIA “black site” prisons overseas, according to a source familiar with conversations he has had about the document.
Trump told ABC News anchor David Muir: “We’re not playing on an even field. When they’re chopping off the heads of our people, and other people — when they’re chopping off the heads of people because they happen to be a Christian in the Middle East — when ISIS is doing things that nobody has ever heard of since medieval times, would I feel strongly about waterboarding? As far as I’m concerned, we have to fight fire with fire.”
Before we continue with this article, I'd like to draw your attention to our first commander and chief General George Washington, Commander of the Continental Army, and an incident after the Battle of Trenton, New Jersey on December 26, 1776.
It seems that after the battle, the Continentals were preparing to run some of the British Empire’s German mercenaries through what they called the “gauntlet.” General Washington discovered this and intervened. Washington then issued an order to his troops regarding prisoners of war:
“‘Treat them with humanity, and let them have no reason to complain of our copying the brutal example of the British Army in their treatment of our unfortunate brethren who have fallen into their hands,’ he wrote. In all respects the prisoners were to be treated no worse than American soldiers; and in some respects, better. Through this approach, Washington sought to shame his British adversaries, and to demonstrate the moral superiority of the American cause.”
And it worked. Many of the German Hessians in fact joined the revolutionaries in their fight against the English and stayed here in America to be free when the war was won.
In the worst of times when foreign troops literally occupied American soil, torturing and murdering American patriots and few believed that the cause of the revolution could ultimately win against the might of the British Empire, the first Commander in Chief of the U.S.A. set the precedent that this society is to lead even our enemies by “benignant sympathy of [our] example.”
To be fair that was a long time ago and certainly things have changed. So before I release classified portions of Donald Trumps executive order on torture here's an interrogator on the ineffectiveness of torture:
According to people who were let go by the Trump administration black sites have been reopened and torture has resumed. Here is a list of C.I.A. forms of torture approved by the Trump administration:
23.) Forced to wear women’s clothes, forced participation in pornography
29.) Harm or threats of harm to family, friends, loved ones, pets, and other victims, to force compliance
Ex-Interrogator: Torture Creates Terrorists
By Brave New Films
Former military interrogator Matthew Alexander refutes Dick Cheney's claim that torture saved American lives.
Dick Cheney says that torturing detainees has saved American lives. That claim is patently false. Cheney's torture policy was directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds if not thousands of American servicemen and women.
Matthew Alexander was the senior military interrogator for the task force that tracked down Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq and, at the time, a higher priority target than Osama bin Laden. Mr. Alexander has personally conducted hundreds of interrogations and supervised over a thousand of them.
"Torture does not save lives. Torture costs us lives," Mr. Alexander said in an exclusive interview at Brave New Studios. "And the reason why is that our enemies use it, number one, as a recruiting tool...These same foreign fighters who came to Iraq to fight because of torture and abuse....literally cost us hundreds if not thousands of American lives."
3.) Restraint; with ropes, chains, cuffs, etc.
”We use electricity or hang them upside down, pull out their nails, and beat them on sensitive parts.” said Colonel James Steele

The rest of Donald Trumps torture methods include things like being forced to listen to John McCain tell his POW stories again, watching the new Apprentice show with Arnold hosting, watching back-to-back episodes of the Rosie O'Donnell show, listening to gold-star families talk about their loved ones or having to watch Al Gores 'An Inconvenient Truth' in its entirety.
Most people kidnapped and tortured are people of color, innocent of terrorism. They are used for non-consensual human experimentation according to recent reports. (See AFP, Doctors have central role in CIA abuse: rights group and CIA doctors face human experimentation claims)
According to Reprieve Founding Director, Attorney Clive Stafford Smith. “Everyday, the U.S. picks up 40 – 60 people considered ‘suspects’ from around the world and imprisons them.” This system is now internationally known to be a U.S. sponsored kidnap-torture-experiment program.
