Torture Chamber Music
Guantanamo Bay prisoners were tortured severely. The CIA used its “enhanced interrogations.” Among the weaponized pop deployed was Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” played so relentlessly, reported Binyam Mohamed, who was released in 2009 after seven-years detention, that he could hear other inmates “screaming and smashing their heads against walls.”
DAVID YEARSLEY writes, "The track was forced on Mohamed for twenty consecutive days. I barely made it through the four-minute video with the audio squeaking out of my laptop’s speakers." He concludes that torturers must face not only their own conscience, but also the judgment of the highest court.
