Torture: Cold Room + Red Hot Chili Peppers Turned Up To 11

The NYT (via Junkyard Blog's digest) has an expose of the "torture" used to break Zubaydah, and it turns out its a cold dank room and loud Red Hot Chili Peppers music.

Sounds like college to me.

I admit that if they used any RHCP album after Blood Sugar Sex Magic, that might just have gone afoul of the Geneva Conventions.

Also on Junkyard Blog:

* The old hoax about Bush's IQ from the "Lovenstein Institute" has actually been redone for "real" and published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Bush may be “much smarter” than the findings imply, says Simonton, but he scores particularly unimpressively for “openness to experience, a cognitive proclivity that encompasses unusual receptiveness to fantasy, aesthetics, actions, ideas and values. In the general population this factor is positively associated with intelligence”.

He scores low for "openness to experience and "receptiveness to fantasy"? And what the hell is is "values" doing there? "Values" are now part of IQ?

Check out this Russian-judge scoring:

Bush’s openness score of zero — compared with 82 for Clinton and John F Kennedy, 95 for Abraham Lincoln and 99.1 for Thomas Jefferson — “placed him at the very bottom of US presidents”.

But even though Bush scores a perfect zero on this part of the test, there is one person who scores worse:

Bush’s score, he says, is comparable to “extremist Islamic fundamentalists in the Taliban and Al-Qaeda leadership — with the notable exception of Osama Bin Laden, who is lower still”.

Hee, hee, hee.

Liberals continue to conflate "intelligence" with "liberal values" because they have so little of the former and so much of the latter. So of course they wish to believe they're interconnected.

And this is shocking: Saddam Hussein had a well-placed spy... at the Associated Press.
