Iraq TV: Muntader al Zaidi Being Tortured at American Military Prison
The Roads to Iraq blog is reporting that Egyptian shoe-tossing champion and TV journalist Muntader al-Zaidi is being tortured in an American military prison.
A Roads to Iraq correspondent wrote on the blog this morning, “Iraqi TV al-Sharqiya just reported on the news that AL-Zaidi is transferred to Camp Cropper prison [the Airport prison, managed by the American forces].”
The correspondent continued,”The TV Channel announced that Al-Zaidi is in a difficult condition, with broken ribs and signs of tortures on his thighs. Also he can not move his right arm.”
If it’s true, this is the torch that will leave the region in complete flames. Bush has broken through every frontier of incompetence to arrive at a kind of divine imbecilic state in which everything he does results in catastrophe.
UPDATE #1: It appears that our hero Muntader has been stomped close to death. The BBC is reporting that he has been hospitalized. His brother Dargham told the news network that Muntader is suffering from an injury to one eye, a broken hand, broken ribs and has internal bleeding.
The Americans will kill this guy and most of the Arab world will go stark, raving bonkers for the next two generations. This is Caligutard’s final kiss for Obama: a world in complete and utter chaos.
UPDATE #2: The massive unrest begins with protests by the armed, militant Popular Resistance Committees in Gaza, brandishing Kalashnikovs and going apeshit. Expect more and expect no efforts by the Caligutard to try to defuse the situation. No doubt, the twisted witless fuck is digging it all.
Meanwhile, the fate or custody of al-Zaidi is unclear. His body, wracked by injuries no one can tell if he sustained being taken into custody at yesterday’s press conference or while being held, is apparently in the custody of Iraqi security officials, according to the AFP.
AFP also reports this morning: [Dargham] said he had been told that his brother was initially held by Iraqi forces in the heavily fortifiedcompound in central Baghdad where the US embassy and most government offices are housed.
