#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!

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.

If torture is the goal play something from someone with no vocal talent, like Spingsteen or 99% of rap.Be Not Afraid.
