    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.

    I wouldn't consider being forced to listen to Enter Sandman torture. I would consider being forced to listen to or watch Barney to be torture. I am so glad my nieces and nephew are too old for that crap now.

    Rumor was that they made detainees watch the View. Just the sight of Joy Behar can bring a hardened jihadi to tears and the sound of her voice can pierce concrete.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Joy Behar could deflate anything, just thinking about her could cause many a dysfunction.

    If torture is the goal play something from someone with no vocal talent, like Spingsteen or 99% of rap.

    Springsteen used to be fun to listen to, but I can see repetitive streaming of anything after Born to Run being used as torture.
