Cruel and Inhuman

A letter writer to the Calgary Herald questions the wisdom of President Obama's executive order to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay and offers a modest proposal for an alternative method to the controversial interrogation techniques practiced there.

He writes:

I'm so pleased that one of President Barack Obama's first executive orders is to give all the terrorists a great big hug and shut down the detention centre at Guantanamo Bay within the year.

This will also include that any future interrogations of these little darlings, who would like nothing more than to murder every man, woman and child here in the West, is conducted within the Army Field Manual.

If getting these killers' hair wet with waterboarding is now forbidden, I have a suggestion how vital intelligence information can be extracted from them without even ruffling their hair.

Throw them in a padded cell and play Kenny G with his saxophone non-stop. They will be screaming for mercy and spilling the beans in no time.

Ooh! Is that even allowed under the Geneva Convention?
