Torture by puppet show at Abu Ghraib

From New Scientist article "Ways of Making Them Talk: Can There Be Effective Interrogation Without Harmful Coercion?":

"Take, for example, the treatment log of Mohamed al-Kahtani, made public in March 2006. This revealed that for weeks on end he faced a daily routine of just 4 hours of interrupted sleep, prolonged stress positions, blaring music, extremes of temperature, and various humiliations--including being treated like a dog, and a mock birthday party which he was shown puppet shows of himself engaging in sexual acts with Osama bin Laden."
