According to a news story (Click here: FOXNews.com - Music Used During U.S. Military Interrogations - Local News | News Articles | National News | US New), certain musicians are a bit offended that US military and intelligence authorities use their songs (blaring loud and played for hours at a time) to break detainees in Gitmo, and other clandestine locations.
I remember when Manuel Norriega (the erstwhile Panamanian dictator) was holed up in the Vatican's embassy in Panama City, and our soldiers blasted him out with tunes from Billy Idol and the Doors. He looked like human jello by the time he surrendered.
The current group of songs used by the intelligence community include tunes from "Barney and Friends," Sesame Street, Metallica, and AC/DC. I like some stuff from the latter two bands, but certainly not for hours on end. If I had to listen to "Barney and Friends" even once I think I'd want to hang myself. The interrogators also use Don Mclean's song American Pie, which every time I hear it, sticks in my head for days, even though I hate it.
I have a couple of suggestions for our interrogators. How about Carmen's Christmas or Hip Hop albums? How about songs from anyone who "sings" (screams) for the TBN "Praise-a-Thon", or as one well-known Reformed theologian once told described torture--anything by the Gaithers played on the accordion.
If you were a CIA interrogator, what would you play to break a terrorist?
