#1 Torture By Sesame Street At Guantanamo Bay: Al Jazeera01-28-2013, 12:09 PM
Part-time children's educator, part-time torture mechanism.
In 2008, reports surfaced that detainees at Guantanamo Bay had been tortured by songs such as Metallica's "Enter Sandman" and Drowning Pool's "Bodies."
Now, a new documentary from Al Jazeera shows that detainees may also have been subjected to musical torture of a softer variety.
According to the report, prisoners at the U.S. detention camp at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base were forced to wear headphones blasting music from Sesame Street on repeat for hours or days on end.
Christopher Cerf, the award-winning composer of Sesame Street, was stunned to learn how his music was being exploited.
What kind of beasts have we become, first we have non-consensual nasal irrigation and now Sesame Street and Barney loops playing endlessly.
Make it stop make it stop, I'll talk, I'll kill for you!The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
