The CIA’s “Disappeared”

The room contained a wooden box, about 3 feet by 3 feet in size, which his interrogators called the “dog box.” “They said that KSM [Khalid Sheikh Mohammed] had spent some time in the dog box and then he talked,” said Jabour. “They kept threatening me: ‘We could do this to you.’” As far as Jabour could tell, his interrogators could do whatever they wanted: there were no rules, no laws, and no protections.

  1. I just checked out a movie called “Punishment Park” 1971
    PP is a pseudo-documentary purporting to be a film crews’s news coverage of the team of soldiers escorting a group of hippies, draft dodgers, and anti-establishment types across the desert in a type of capture the flag game. The soldiers vow not to interfere with the rebels’ progress and merely shepherd them along to their destination. At that point, having obtained their goal, they will be released. The film crew’s coverage is meant to insure that the military’s intentions are honorable. As the representatives of the 60′s counter-culture get nearer to passing this arbitrary test, the soldiers become increasingly hostile, attempting to force the hippies out of their pacifist behavior. A lot of this film appears improvised and in several scene real tempers seem to flare as some of the “acting” got overaggressive. This is a interesting exercise in situational ethics. The cinema-veritie style, hand-held camera, and ambiguous demands of the director – would the actors be able to maintain their roles given the hazing they were taking – pushed some to the brink. The cast’s emotions are clearly on the surface. Unfortunately this film has gone completely underground and is next to impossible to find. It would offer a captivating document of the distrust that existed between soldiers willfully serving in the military and those persons who opposed the war peacefully.

    Thanx to the Patroit Act I&II & Military Commision Act this is going on for real in secret but “they” don’t give you a choice of the park.
