"Poppy" Bush Porno?

It is possible that George H. W. Bush ("Poppy") has been captured on camera in flagrante delicto, and that war was waged in order to destroy the video tapes and photographs...

DailyMailScreenwriter mysteriously killed in 1997 after finishing script that revealed the 'real reason' for US invasion of Panama had been working for the CIA... and both his hands were missing

Devore's research for the end product included an article from London's now defunct Sunday Correspondent alleging dictator General Manuel Noriega had compiled a stash of sex tapes featuring top-ranking US officials.  

Noriega, the article explains, ran a well-known 'honey trap': inviting diplomats to his home filled with alcohol, drugs, beautiful women, and beautiful men - and covertly filming their antics.   

After years of research, Dr Alford suggests the film may have implied the invasion was nothing more than a diversion that would allow the US into Panama to steal back incriminating photos of senior US officials that Noriega could have used as blackmail.

We can only speculate as to who the "top-ranking US officials" snatched on Noriega's secret porno-cams might have been. As Vice President, however, George H. W. Bush did meet and was photographed with Noriega in 1983, as reported in the  December 21, 1989 New York Times...

When an embarrassing photo of a 1983 meeting between Mr. Bush and General Noriega in Panama City surfaced last year, Panamanian opposition leaders said that the meeting was to discuss money laundering of drug profits through Panama while Bush aides called it a routine stopover to discuss drug interdiction efforts.

Did the Vice President himself fall for Noriega's honey trap during this visit? This is a game that "Poppy" had mastered however (by 1990 at the latest), according to a profile of Gene "Chip" Tatum by David G. Guyatt in the April/May 1997 issue of Nexus Magazine, reproduced here with the account of a snuff film set up, arranged by then President Bush, for a presumptuous Nicaraguan official dined and surreptitiously dosed with Scopolamine, known as the "voodoo drug" Burundanga...

The Pegasus File

Following the meal, he was ushered into the suite of a "blonde bombshell" supplied by the CIA. Mr X had already ingested a dose of Burundanga during pre-dinner cocktails. X was gallant with the blonde as they both moved into the bedroom where video cameras were already set up in one corner. In short order, the blonde had X standing naked in front of her and began to indulge his desires. All the while, the video cameras whirred. Slowly stripping off, the "blonde" revealed his manhood in all its glory. Mr X was instructed to reciprocate the favour and perform fellatio. He obliged, his intimate activities recorded at 24 frames a second on videotape.

Tatum says the male prostitute was hired from a bar in New York and killed that same evening.

Two weeks later, X - wholly unaware of the events of that evening - was visited in Nicaragua. He was presented with a copy of the video footage, along with instructions. Tatum says that X can never allow that video to be seen: "Not only does it reveal his homosexuality, but it also reveals his bestiality and satanic worship rituals." As frame after frame flicked by, X reportedly wept, forced to watch himself kill his homosexual "lover" and then engage in the most grisly cannabalistic ritual imaginable.

Pedo news...

Wayne Madsen Report: Epstein's helicopter shared FAA tail number with State Department counterinsurgency aircraft

Billionaire pederast Jeffrey Epstein, who has been accused of trafficking in at least and perhaps as many as 103 underage females, according to documents filed in the U.S. Federal Court in West Palm Beach, Florida, shared the tail number of his Bell Long Ranger 206L3 helicopter (tail number N474AW) with a U.S. State Department OV-10D Bronco. According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) registration database, Epstein's Bell helicopter and the Bronco owned by the U.S. State Department and contracted to the private military company Dyncorp for "counter-insurgency" and "counter-narcotics" operations in Larandia, Colombia used the same N474AW tail number...

The congruence of Epstein's Bell N474AW and Dyncorp's Bronco N474AW is noteworthy. In 2002, the year Epstein's aircraft fleet stands accused of flying underage teen girls, some between the ages of 12 and 15, coincides with Dyncorp's trafficking in underage females between the ages of 12 and 15 from Kosovo and Bosnia in the Balkans...

Among the "Jane Does" filing suit against the U.S. government for concluding a sweetheart Non-Prosecution Agreement (NPA) between Epstein, his co-conspirators, and the U.S. Justice Department are a number of females with Slavic-sounding first names like "Tatianna" and "Natalya" and Slavic last names like Metrovitch, Malyshov, and Mulinska. Such names are found in countries like Bosnia and Kosovo, where Dyncorp employees were also trafficking in teenage girls.

Also noted in Hausfrau's basement:

Let's go to [Epstein's] New Mexico compound in Stanley, NM which is on record as being one of his most significant pedo compounds. Dershowitz was allegedly a frequent visitor there and stands accused by former child sex slave Victoria Roberts who is suing him now of having raped her at Zorro Ranch, owned by Jeffrey Epstein in Stanley, NM. Bill Richardson and Bill Clinton are also on record of having been frequent visitors and having partied there.

This is Epstein's Zorro Ranch in Stanley, NM

Stanley, NM is a special place. It is in the middle of nowhere within commute to Albuquerque and the whole town is essentially a handful of ranches which are a private unincorporated county speck in the desert with nobody around.

Nobody except..... special friends of Epstein who sold him the land and lived there with him all those years or at least when he came visiting with his child orgies which he reportedly did heavily for many years.

The entire population of the 'town' of Stanley is listed on last census of 1975 as 70 people with no newer records found. That translates into the 2 families I found, a small contingent of real estate which is empty and chronically on sale on Zillow plus Epstein's compound and staff and security. End of town of Stanley, NM.

Who were the 2 families who invited Epstein to their birthplace compound in Stanley, sold him a piece of family land to build his pedo ranch and lived there with him on the compound while he and the sex slave girlies visited all the time?
Governor Bruce King of New Mexico, 3-term Democratic governor of New Mexico and his son
Attorney General Gary King of New Mexico until Jan 1, 2015. He plans to run for governor again.

An artist named Alan Ebnother is also listed as having lived there.

These Saudi insiders also reported that Salman's governor’s office arranged for cash payments, hotels, and air fares for the Al Qaeda members.

Sovereigns of Porno update

Something we had previously noted is finding new life in the headlines...

Mirror: Prince Andrew may have been secretly filmed with underage girl he is alleged to have abused

Details buried in original court papers filed against pervert Jeffrey Epstein, 61, reveal that he recorded the sordid orgies he threw for VIPs at his luxury homes using cameras hidden in the walls of guest bedrooms.

The woman known as Jane Doe 3 – said to be 30-year-old Virginia Roberts – claims she was held as a sex slave and forced to sleep with the Duke of York in London, New York and the US Virgin Islands.  

She says she was 17 at the time – under the age of consent in Florida...

Lawyers representing Roberts, originally referred to as Jane Doe 102, mentioned the hidden cameras in a 27-page filing at the Palm Beach Federal Courthouse in Florida...

“On the Day of his arrest, police found two hidden cameras and photographs of ­underage girls on a computer in the defendant’s home.  

“[He] may have taken lewd ­photographs of Jane Doe 102 with his hidden cameras and transported [them] to his other residences and elsewhere.”...

In the latest court documents, filed December 30, Roberts and other Jane Does are suing the government for negligence in its prosecution of Epstein, claiming they were not consulted over the plea agreement in which Epstein settled for an 18 month sentence (of which 13 were served), considerably less than the 15 years which would be the sentence under normal circumstances. As to what may have motivated their keeping the Jane Does out of the loop, in a statement pregnant with possibilities for our "Sovereigns of Porno" series...

[Roberts]  further claims she was sex-trafficked to “many other powerful men, including numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well known Prime Minister, and other world leaders”.

Among British Prime Ministers still living, none is more prominent (albeit in infamy) than Tony Blair.

Roberts earlier had named others she has met in the company of Epstein, including Bill Clinton, Al and Tipper Gore, Ehud Barak, George Mitchell, and Donald Trump, though she has no direct knowledge of  sexual trysts involving these figures.

Michael Hayden defends rectal rehydration. That's because Hayden likely attended Dick Cheney's rectal rehydration parties at which female prostitutes squirted on glass top tables. Maybe Hayden got his expertise on this fetish when he was getting it on with "Captain AmErika" in Sarajevo in the 90s.

niqnaq translates: ukraine has the peculiar idea that it has “the right to join nato”

BRUSSELS – In Ukraine are growing doubts as to the policy of the German Federal government. Kiev is particularly frustrated about statements made by foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier (SPD) at the beginning of this week which rejected the idea of NATO membership for Ukraine. The Ambassador of Ukraine to the European Union in Brussels, Konstantin Yeliseev, told Die Welt:  

"I can’t understand why the German foreign Minister Steinmeier wants to exclude NATO membership for Ukraine. This remark Mr Steinmeier made a few days ago is surprising and disappointing. Each partner country, including Germany, should respect the choice of a sovereign state such as Ukraine..."

Sovereign state? In the past year we would liken the Ukraine more to a playground of clandestine agencies' "fun and games". German foreign minister Steinmeier seems to be coming to the realization that this is no game...

Global Post: Germany wants NATO, Russia to restart dialogue

"We now have very few ways of talking about events which come up suddenly, for example military exercises, (aircraft) over-flights or the presence of Russian warships around the world," German Foreign Minister Franz Walter Steinmeier said.  

"We no longer have the possibility to determine what lies behind such moves and whether they are cause for concern or not," he said on the sidelines of a NATO foreign ministers' meeting in Brussels.  

Steinmeier warned that current contacts with Russia were even less than during the Cold War and this should be changed so as to avoid events getting "completely out of control."

We hope not this kind of "out of control"...

Who Wanted Waterpower?

Among the more notorious of practices that have come to light in the recently released Senate torture report is that of "rectal hydration" (covered in our post, The Anal Americans). In the ensuing media spin cycles, we have been treated to the embarrassment of former CIA directors and agents along with other Bush Administration officials, including Dick Cheney, defending rectal hydration and feeding as legitimate medical procedures...

The Hill: Ex-CIA director defends rectal rehydration

Rove defends CIA's use of rectal feeding tubes

Guardian: Cheney insists 'rectal feeding' was for medical reasons, not torture

Daily Beast: CIA Interrogation Chief - ‘Rectal Feeding,’ Broken Limbs Are News to Me

“Rectal hydration thing sounds like a medical procedure, but it was not part of the approved and sanctioned techniques that were given to us by our guys and approved” by the Justice Department, he said.

Since these procedures were conducted outside of the interrogation sessions proper, and as M.D.'s say they  have no medical value, the motivation for them can only be attributed to the sadism and voyeurism of the officials who approved of and conducted them...

Physicians for Human Rights: Medical Professionals Denounce “Rectal Feeding” as “Sexual Assault Masquerading as Medical Treatment”

Amidst the flurry of recriminations and "no apology" defenses, certain allegations revisited in the December 10-11 Wayne Madsen Report, Senate Torture Report exposes bizarre sexual voyeurism of Cheney, others, tend to support this thesis. When Cheney said on FOX, CIA Report 'Is Full of Crap', he was making a Freudian slip. He would have a good idea of what crap looks like - indeed, from a perspective beneath "the dark side". According to an April 11, 2008 Madsen report during the "D.C. Madam" Deborah Jeanne Palfrey trial, Cheney's predilection for water-sports - of the "number two" variety - was first brought to light...

Cheney, according to knowledgeable sources involved in the Palfrey trial, paid at least one escort to straddle a glass top table and defecate on it while Cheney peered at the bowel "evacuation" from underneath.

Suggestive of Cheney's voyeurism, Madsen recounts the curious timing of both the destruction of some of the CIA torture videotapes and a suspicious fire near Cheney's office in the Eisenhower Old Executive Office Building...

After the Senate Intelligence Committee expressed interest in the torture videotapes, the CIA destroyed them on November 9, 2005, according to the report. The number of videotapes held by the CIA and destroyed is not disclosed. The report indicates that other videotapes of torture were destroyed by the CIA beginning in December 2007.

WMR previously reported that live video streaming equipment used by Vice President Cheney and his aides to view torture sessions in his Old Executive Building office was destroyed by a suspicious fire.

The fire occurred on December 19, 2007. Citing May 28, 2009 and December 21, 2008 reports, Madsen continues...

"WMR reported on the high-tech support provided the Bush-Cheney White House by Mike Connell's GovTech Solutions and his close colleague Jeff Averbeck's firm SmarTech. Connell died last December when the plane he was piloting crashed short of landing in Akron, Ohio. We have now learned that Connell and Averbeck may have been behind the installation of live streaming black boxes in the White House and the Eisenhower Old Executive Office Building used to stream live video of torture sessions in Guantanamo, Cuba and Abu Ghraib to the Old Executive Office Building office of Vice President Dick Cheney's Chief Counsel David Addington and into the White House, itself."

Addington is mentioned a number of times in the Senate report as being a key player in the torture program.  WMR's May 28, 2009 report continued: "The fire that broke out in an 'electrical closet' in the Old Executive Office Building on December 19, 2007, near Cheney's ceremonial office likely contained the live streaming boxes used to stream torture sessions from Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib, according to our sources who added that SmartTech and Airnet have been in the live streaming video business since 2002..."

These allegations further raise an admittedly speculative and seemingly improbable but quite plausible possibility. While we do not have a smoking gun, we have evidence of both motive and opportunity to suggest that Dick Cheney may have requested the making of Waterpower, a 1977 hardcore "high colonics" specialty film, a remake of Taxi Driver but loosely based on the true story of the "enema bandit," Michael Kenyon.

With lines in the Senate report quoted from internal emails being practically lifted out of the screenplay of Waterpower...

"[w]hat I infer is that you get a tube up as far as you can, then open the IV wide. No need to squeeze the bag - let gravity do the work."

...and given Cheney's peculiar kink, some have pondered whether he might have had something to do with the film. We have contacted Shaun Costello, the director of Waterpower, about this question; while he has no knowledge of Cheney's involvement, we wondered about a brief encounter in '74 - when Cheney was the Deputy Assistant to President Ford following Nixon's Watergate resignation - that suggests this possibility cannot be ruled out. Costello has an autobiographical blog where he recounts the hey-day of "The Deuce" - the area around Times Square where the adult cinema thrived in the '70s and early '80s before it became an industry and before Times Square was "Disney-fied". The post that peaked our interest on this matter concerns his mother's wedding reception in Washington D.C...

The Third Hand

Both the ceremony and the reception were to be held at the townhouse of Michael Gill, a close friend of my mother’s new victim, and a man who had made a  lifetime career out of being the nephew of Mamie Eisenhower. He was one of those Washington political parasites who lived on the perks when his party was in power. The republicans still held the Whitehouse so Michael Gill was on the dole. It was never made clear to me exactly what Gill did, but from the look of him, I was certain that not all of it was legal. 

Perhaps not, but he had been on the staff of Charles S. Rhyne (NYT obit) during the '68 Nixon-Agnew Presidential Campaign (CQ AlmanacSpecial assistant to Rhyne is Michael Gill, a Washington, D.C., resident and nephew of former President Eisenhower.) Rhyne was a long time Nixon supporter who eventually became council for his Oval Office secretary, Rose Mary Woods, in the inquiry concerning the missing 18 minutes of White House recordings during Watergate.

Back to Costello: 

The ceremony was to be presided over by a Seventh Circuit Appellate Judge, and attended by a collection of Washington’s best and worst characters. My mother’s new husband had owned restaurants in the Washington area for years, and seemed well liked. Bob Dole was there, as was Dick Cheney, Ed Musky, and what seemed like every lobbyist in the capital.

On the other side of the reception was a delegation of boys from the Bonnano family in New York, some of whom looked familiar. What an amazing gathering. Some of them had gone to law school to learn how to defend criminals, and some of them had attended “The University of the Streets” to learn the subtle nuances of the import/export business, but all of them were gangsters. I hadn’t seen this many republicans in one room since the televised coverage of the 1972 Convention.

Costello describes his exploration of Gill's townhouse, particularly of the basement which he describes as "a wood paneled wonderland of adult entertainment," including a home theater...

The shelves in the projection room contained 16MM prints of feature films, all pornographic. As I went through the titles I was horrified to find several little movies that I had made for Sid Levine the previous year, and I was in about half of them. So Michael Gill had seen me in action. But how could he have gotten his hands on theatrical films that I had made for the DeCavalcante crime family? Then I remembered the boys from the Bonnano family who were upstairs for the wedding.

Costello then recounts his meeting Dick Cheney...

Gill, who’s constantly filling my glass, was telling me a series of bizarre stories about the sexual capabilities of his insatiable, nymphomaniac girlfriend. She was a mousy little thing, who I’m sure no one at the reception  suspected of having a third hand located in her vagina, yet Gill maintained that this was the case. Now I knew that he recognized me from the movies. Why else would he be constantly whispering in my ear about his girlfriend’s sexual exploits? If he knew, did his pal who was in the midst of marrying my mother also know? Did Cheney? Dole? Musky? Just how many members of the United States Senate had watched, in the comfy confines of Michael Gill’s underground pleasure chamber, the movies I had made for the Mob? Gill was still relentlessly whispering. “I guarantee you young man, the slippery grasp, the velvety fingers, your zorch will be the happiest little guy on planet Earth.” Zorch? I hadn’t heard that word since I was twelve. At this point Gill decided that I should meet his pal Dick Cheney who, for the past few months, had been running Gerry Ford’s transition team, working just under his buddy Don Rumsfeld. “Dick, I’d like you meet the bride’s son Shaun. He’s a film maker you know.” Cheney turned with an outstretched hand, “A real pleasure Shaun. They make quite a handsome couple. A film maker, huh. Not a member of the press are you?” “No sir, not at all.” Cheney was sizing me up. “What kind of films do you make?” He was peering at me over the top of his glasses. “Golf sir, my last film was about the British Open.” Cheney smiled, “Golf. That’s the ticket. The great American common denominator. Everybody loves golf. Did you know that President Ford is quite an accomplished golfer? Plays with the pros all the time.”

Wink wink? Fast forward a couple of years, to an odd request from Costello's mafia patrons, recounted in his blog entry on the making of Waterpower, of his meeting with Sid Levine in the Fall of '76...

Sid was looking grim when I got to his office, and he didn’t waste any time. “Look, I’m a grandfather and I’m ashamed to have to ask you this, but they need an enema movie.”

We wondered, who is this "they"? Mr. Costello insists that "they" are Robert "DiBi" DiBernardo (see the Mafia Wikia entry for background). He thought money could be made on this film because of the notoriety of the true story of the "enema bandit". Listen however to the words of DiBi that Costello quotes:

“Look, I don’t want to know about this thing. You just do whatever Sid tells you. I don’t want to see it. I don’t want to know about it. I don’t want to talk about it. OK? Understand? I don’t want anybody to know I was involved in this thing. OK? Got it?”

Does this sound like someone who thinks he's going to make a bundle? In fact, as Costello recounts, Waterpower languished in the American theaters, finding no success until years later, when Reuben Sturman's operation distributed it to the European and Japanese markets. DiBi's tone however suggests that perhaps this film was to be made as a favor for someone. But who? The players in the crime syndicates of the time were quite conservative in their sexual tastes. Politicians however were and are another matter. Given the confluence of "connections" that were present together at Michael Gill's townhouse, we are thus presented with the opportunity for the request to eventually be made. Though the Bonannos did not handle porn distribution on the East Coast, they were friendly with the Gambino interests who did. As we read on pg. 175 of The Other Hollywood:

Operation "Amore" Report: Michael Zaffarano: Subject is an old capo in the Bonanno crime family. Information has been received that Zaffarano has been working very closely with Gambino interests in New York City, Los Angeles and Miami. Los Angeles Police Department states that the Bonanno family through Zaffarano is the controlling porno power in California.

From Cheney to Gill to Zaffarano to DiBi to Costello? The question remains: for what in exchange of which would this favor have been done? We can only speculate, but the history of government collusion in the drug trade - particularly in order to fund CIA operations unapproved by Congress - is well documented, from Alfred McCoy's The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia to Daniel Hopsicker's Barry and the Boys to Gary Webb's Dark Alliance series. Could Cheney have offered "most favored status" to the Bonanno and/or Gambino interests in the drug trade? Here we veer into the nether regions of deep politics, one might say, "where the sun doesn't shine"...

The Anal Americans

In as much as the Order of Skull and Bones may be said to be integral to the origins of the CIA, so may it be said that excrement lines the embryo from which the agency has sprung. This much is alleged in the depiction of a Skull and Bones hazing rite in Robert DeNiro's 2006 film The Good Shepherd, wherein nude initiates wrestle in mud (or feces) while being rained down upon with the urine of their seniors. The scene is pruriently discussed here:

Towleroad: In the Mud with Matt Damon

(More sober reviews of the Eric Roth screenplay critique its accuracy, however, ranging from the limited hangout charge leveled by Conspirazzi to the sour assessment of the CIA's own court historians.)

A recent Wayne Madsen Report details the ongoing fascination the CIA has had with "Excrem-INT" throughout its history and up to the present. Some excerpts...

Genetic assassination weapons in CIA's quiver

Ever since Francis Crick and James Watson discovered the double helix of DNA in the 1950s, intelligence agencies immediately began to discover ways to use the discovery of DNA for weapons research. Although it has always been assumed that intelligence services conducted MEDINT, or medical intelligence gathering, to discover what ailments were afflicting world leaders, it is also true that particular genetic traits of potential targets for assassination were being analyzed to develop genetic-specific weapons. A genetic susceptibilty of a targeted individual to develop cancer, heart disease, or other fatal or debilitating diseases would assist intelligence agencies to deliver particular "designer" genetic weapons.

The U.S. Secret Service goes to great lengths to collect all of the President's DNA samples while he travels abroad. Drinking glasses are wiped, napkins are collected, and even stool and urine samples are protected from being obtained by foreign intelligence agencies while the President is visiting foreign locales. This has always been one of the more closely-guarded operations of the Secret Service. However, such countermeasures are not only taken to ensure that medical information on a commander-in-chief's prescription drug usage, medical condition, and other health information is not obtained by a hostile or even friendly intelligence service but also to prevent medical intelligence from enabling a hostile service from developing a designer genetic weapon.

The State Department's program to collect DNA samples from foreign political figures was leaked in a 2010 SECRET/NOFORN cable from the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to U.S. embassies in Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of Congo requesting them to obtain "DNA," in addition to fingerprints, facial images, and iris scans, from government leaders. The collection needs were described as being part of the National HUMINT Collection Directive (NHCD). Other embassies and missions also received requests for DNA samples. The Central Intelligence Agency and Defense Intelligence Agency were copied on the State Department biometric collection tasking cables. In 2005, the CIA director was designated as the National HUMINT Manager for the U.S. Intelligence Community.  The operations are carried out under the National Clandestine Service of the CIA...

The annals of the CIA are replete with operations designed to capture human waste samples from various world leaders. Included in the CIA's sweep for poop and urine were Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev whose solid waste was trapped by the CIA during his 1959 visit to the United States and King Faisal of Saudi Arabia whose urine was captured in the urinal of a Monte Carlo casino. Similar samples taken from Egypt's President Gamal Abdel Nasser and Indonesian leader Sukarno, founders of the non-aligned movement, may have resulted in the CIA creating designer poisons to kill them both within a few months of each other in 1970. Nasser died from a sudden heart attack while Sukarno , under house arrest after a CIA coup, died from kidney failure...

In an WMR article from 2006, Even Bush's crap is classified top secret (mirrored at Rense), we read of other "Copro-ops" on foreign leaders...

The Israeli Mossad conducted one such operation against Syrian President Hafez Assad when he visited Amman, Jordan in Feb. 1999 for the funeral of King Hussein. The Mossad and its Jordanian counterpart installed a special toilet in Assad's hotel room that led not to a pipe but to a specimen canister. Assad suffered from diabetes and cancer and the operation was designed to discover the actual medical condition of the ailing leader. During Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev's visit to Washington in 1987, the CIA reportedly placed a special trap under a sewage tank to collect the Soviet leader's bodily waste for analysis. More recently, the CIA was reported to have collected waste samples from Ugandan President-dictator Yoweri Museveni's toilet when he visited Washington.

While such coprophagous "intelligence gathering" is purposed to specific operative or analytic goals, other practices can be only be characterized as purely gratuitous. For instance, take the case of "The IRF-ing of Omar Deghayes" at Guantanamo Bay. IRF is the acronym for Immediate Reaction Force or alternately ERF, Emergency Reaction Force, described in this Jeremy Scahill article found at WikiLeaks:

Guantanamo's Immediate Reaction Force still terrorizing detainees

ERF-ing Omar -- The Feces Incident

On one of the ERF-ing incidents where Omar was abused, the officer in charge himself came into the cell with the feces of another prisoners [sic] and smeared it onto Omar's face. While some prisoners had thrown feces at the abusive guards, Omar had always emphatically refused to sink to this level. The experience was one of the most disgusting in Omar's life.

The parallel of this treatment to the alleged coprophilic hazing rite of Skull and Bones is evident. It is clear however that these "enhanced interrogation" techniques go far beyond even the most elite of frat-boy antics. Today, with the U.S. Senate's release of the much anticipated CIA torture report, we find officials who are not concerned with what comes out of the anal cavity, but with what they can force in, as is detailed in footnote 584, pg. 100 (129 of the PDF), courtesy of Cryptome...

CIA medical officers discussed rectal rehydration as a means of behavior control. As one officer wrote, "[w]hile IV infusion is safe and effective, we were impressed with the ancillary effectiveness of rectal infusion on ending the water refusal in a similar case."...

The same officer provided a description of the procedure, writing that "[r)egarding the rectal tube, if you place it and open up the IV tubing, the flow will self regulate, sloshing up the large intestines." Referencing the experience of the medical officer who subjected KSM to rectal rehydration, the officer wrote that, "[w]hat I infer is that you get a tube up as far as YOU can, then open the IV wide. No need to squeeze the bag - let gravity do the work."...

The same email exchange included a description of a previous application of the technique, in which "we used the largest Ewal bag we had."...

Majid Khan's "lunch tray," consisting of hummus, pasta with sauce, nuts, and raisins was "pureed" and rectally infused...

CIA leadership, including General Counsel Scott Muller and DDO James Pavitt, was also alerted to allegations that rectal exams were conducted with "excessive force" on two detainees at DETENTION SITE COBALT. CIA attorney [redacted] was asked to follow up, although CIA records do not indicate any resolution of the inquiry. CIA records indicate that one of the detainees, Mustafa al-Hawsawi. was later diagnosed with chronic hemorrhoids, an anal·fissure, and symptomatic rectal prolapse.


Perhaps these secret society initiates and intelligence operatives could apply their anal fixations to more productive endeavors...
