Dr.Dre and Eminem Torture Prisoners

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that declassified Army documents approved soldiers to use various forms of popular music as torture devices for known terrorism suspects. The documents approve "yelling, loud music, light control: used to create fear, disorient detainee and prolong capture shock." Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, who served as U.S. military commander in Iraq, authorized the torture technique in September of 2003.

Binyam Mohammed who was held at the "Dark Prison" in Kabul, Afghanistan says U.S. forces bombarded him with repeated listens of Dr. Dre, Eminem, Nine Inch Nails and Metallica, which left inmates screaming and smashing their heads against prison cell walls.

"There was loud music, [Eminem's] 'Slim Shady' and Dr. Dre for 20 days. I heard this nonstop over and over," says Mohammed. "The CIA worked on people, including me, and some people lost thier minds."

---I coulda found 1,000 artists to use in front of these two. Soulja Boy, V.I.C. (Get sillay!), McDonald's "McNuggets Lovin" guy, Lil' Boosie, Weebie, Plies, Hurricane on a so forth.
