List of 20 Songs The CIA Used To Torture Prisoners Of War

According to numerous witnesses and declassified reports, video evidence, and testimony from prisoners, guards and soldiers, the CIA used music to torture detainees in a number of different ways.

In some cases, songs would be played in repetition for hours or days on end, as to drive the prisoner to insanity. Music was also used to prevent detainees from sleeping, which is another way of creating delirium and vulnerability in the detainees.

Some songs were chosen because they were annoying, while others were chosen because they may have been offensive to the prisoner’s culture or religion. Some of the songs are annoying and could understandably be considered torture, specifically the Barney & Friends theme song, and the Meow Mix commercial.

Some of the artists who have had their songs used for torture have been very opposed to US foreign policy, especially Rage Against The Machine. In some cases, bands have even sued the US government for using their music in Guantánamo torture. For example, the Canadian electro-industrial band Skinny Puppy famously sued the US government after learning that their music was being used to torture people at Guantanamo Bay.

Below are some of the songs that have been identified most often as being used by the US military in their torture programs.

1. Deicide: **** Your God

2. Dope: Die MF Die, Take Your Best Shot

Bruno Godinho · Dope- Die MotherF*cker Die

3. Eminem: White America, Kim, The Real Slim Shady

4. Barney & Friends: theme song

5. Drowning Pool: Bodies

6. Metallica: Enter Sandman

7. Meow Mix: commercial jingle

8. Sesame Street: theme song

9. David Gray: Babylon

10. AC/DC: Shoot to Thrill, Hell’s Bells

11. Bee Gees: Stayin’ Alive

12. Tupac: All Eyez On Me

13. Christina Aguilera: Dirrty

14. Neil Diamond: America

15. Rage Against the Machine: unspecified songs

16. Don McLean: American Pie

17. Saliva: Click Click Boom

18. Matchbox Twenty: Cold

19. (hed)pe: Swan Dive

20. Prince: Raspberry Beret

This torture technique is nothing new and has also been used during protests and stand-off situations. In some cases, they don’t even use music but instead will just play loud noises on repeat for hours. This is often part of a sleep deprivation strategy, which includes keeping lights on subjects for hours or even days at a time.

When the United States invaded Panama in December 1989, General Noriega took refuge in an embassy on December 24th, which was immediately surrounded by U.S. troops. For about a week, the military blasted rock music, including Van Halen’s song “Panama.” They also played episodes of The Howard Stern Show for extended periods of time.

Musicians are becoming increasingly frustrated with their music being used by politicians and government agencies. Last year, a large group of musicians signed a letter asking politicians to stop using their music for campaign rallies and other government purposes, unless they have direct consent from the artist. Torture is technically banned by the Geneva convention, but many governments get around this international law by simply not classifying their actions as torture. This is much the same way that police agencies use weapons on protesters that are capable of killing people, but still refer to them as “less than lethal” weapons.

Which Dictator Killed The Most People?

blank

Published

on

A popular infographic on the site memolition compares many different ruthless dictators through history, and shows their death counts illustrated by drops of blood to represent one million people killed.

Mao Zedong is at the top of the list, having directly or indirectly led to the deaths of 78 million people, followed by Joseph Stalin with an estimated 23 million, and Adolf Hitler with 17 million.

However, there are many scholars who suggest that these numbers are not so cut and dry, and may not offer an entirely accurate representation of what took place. To start, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong were both ruling over much larger populations, for a much longer time than Adolf Hitler, and many of the deaths that were caused under their regime were caused indirectly through poverty and famine.

Of course, Russia and China during these eras had brutal police states, where citizens were routinely killed or thrown into prison for defying the state. The primary goal of those regimes was maintaining power, which is fairly common of authoritarian regimes. However, with Hitler and the Nazis, the genocide was targeted at specific ethnic and social groups, and eugenics was at the forefront of the regime’s philosophy. Many scholars have argued that even though the Nazi regime killed fewer people than its communist counterparts of the time, they represented a unique danger because they were seeking to use military force to reshape the genetics of the world.

Leopold II of Belgium, who has been mostly forgotten by mainstream history, was also listed in the graphic. Leopold is said to be responsible for an estimated 15 million deaths. The vast majority of the killings took place during Belgium’s colonization of the Congo in Africa, where the country controlled a large number of mining operations. To encourage higher production at the mines, Leopold’s regime is said to have cut off the hands of men, women, and children when quotas were not met.

Each of these people were ruthless murderers, regardless of the circumstances, and many of the people who are in leadership positions in government today are not much different.

Police Sketch Of Woman Implicated In Madeleine McCann Disappearance Looks Like Ghislaine Maxwell

Disclaimer: This is just a theory based on loose connections, and a police sketch that resembles Maxwell, but there is not yet any definitive proof to confirm this theory. It is time to dig deeper!

Following the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell, there has been endless speculation about what type of information she can reveal to the public. One interesting speculation that is swirling around conspiracy theory circles is that Maxwell could have been involved in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

In 2009, CNN published a sketch of a woman who was being sought in connection with McCann’s disappearance, and the woman in the sketch had a striking resemblance to Maxwell. The woman was also described to police as having an accent that sounded Australian, an accent that could easily be mistaken for British.

The woman was described as having a similar appearance to Victoria Beckham, the former Spice Girl singer. She was described as in her 30s and about 5 feet 2 inches tall. The sketch can be seen in the photo below:

A suspect in the McCann case has been arrested, but it is not clear if he acted alone, and he is reportedly a wealthy individual. There is no evidence that the suspect was linked to Maxwell in any way, but she did keep many wealthy pedophiles in her circle of friends.

The primary suspect in the case has been named as Christian Brueckner, and authorities say that they have been discovering more evidence showing that he is responsible for the girl’s death.

Just two years ago, Brueckner was arrested in Italy on charges related to a different case, where he was accused of raping an American in 2007. DNA matching his was also found at the scene. He was also charged in numerous other sexual assaults of American tourists.

In December of 2019, he was convicted and sentenced to seven years in prison based on the evidence against him, but the case is pending appeal, so the sentence has not yet been imposed.

It is not immediately clear how he became a suspect in this case as well, but the evidence must be significant for him to be named by authorities.

3-year-old McCann, went missing while the family was on vacation in 2007, and the case has been shrouded in mystery ever since.

The suspect is also believed to have rented a farmhouse that is less than a half-hour away from where the young girl disappeared. It is believed that while he was in the neighborhood, he would lurk through the area robbing and stealing from different houses, and occasionally even committing sexual assaults when he had the opportunity.

Brueckner is currently being held in solitary confinement because there have been so many threats from other inmates in the prison. As for Maxwell, she is currently on suicide watch, just like Epstein was before he died.

A source at the prison told The Sun that the staff is being extremely careful to keep a close eye on Maxwell, considering what has happened in the case already. However, considering that her case is being processed through the same courts as Epstein’s, there is a good chance that Maxwell could soon be transferred to the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan, the same prison where Epstein mysteriously died.

Maria Farmer Epstein Victim: Rothschilds, Trump, Clintons, Wexner All Involved

Maria Farmer one of the earliest victims of Epstein claims, Ghislaine Maxwell told her the Rothschilds were the greatest protector of her family and that Donald Trump, the Clintons, and Alan Dershowitz were all involved.

Maria Farmer shared new details about her time spent with serial pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, as well as who she believes is protecting Epstein’s longtime confidante, Ghislaine Maxwell, the Rothschilds family with journalist Whitney Webb during The The Last American Vagabond podcast on April 21st, 2020. Farmer is alleged to be the first victim of Jeffrey Epstein after she first reported her story to the New York police and FBI as early as 1996.

Since 2019 after Epstein’s arrest and subsequent untimely death, Maria Farmer has begun speaking more openly about her abuse at the hands of Epstein and his network. As well as the abuse of her then-15-year-old sister, Annie. Farmer. Maria stated in the interview with journalist Whitney Webb that the abuse took place at the million-dollar estate owned by Epstein’s financier and former friend, Lex Wexner, CEO of the Limited Brands and Victoria’s Secret. Farmer alleged that she was abused by both Epstein and Maxwell during this time period.

Farmer provided new details of her time with Epstein and claimed that the FBI and corporate media were failing to tell her tale. In the recent interview with Webb, Farmer details how she often saw a number of important people specifically naming — Donald Trump, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Epstein attorney Alan Dershowitz associating with Epstein. Webb played the shocking audio from her interview with Farmer on The Last American Vagabond podcast.

“The worst part was I named everyone. I named everyone who I thought was a co-conspirator at the time. So I named Alan Dershowitz, Donald Trump, absolutely the Clinton’s,” Farmer stated in the audio clip. “These were people that I saw coming and going, that I knew were a part of it. I made it really clear that this was a very scary thing for children and I see between 5-10 girls a day going upstairs.”

Farmer further stated that Maxwell grew up with the British Royal family, providing photo evidence of the apparent lifelong relationship. “She says to me, my dad was a very powerful man. She had a french passport, English passport, Israeli passport, and an American passport,” Farmer stated about Maxwell and her deceased father Robert Maxwell, himself a suspected agent of British or Israeli intelligence agencies.

In the momentous monstrous revelations, Farmer fingered the Rothschilds stating they protect Maxwell.

“Later when she was talking to me she says, the Rothschilds were the greatest protector of her family,” Farmer told Webb in the recording. Farmer added that she has even received death threats from the Rothschild family. She also claimed that she believed Maxwell was being hidden in the UK, something we now know to be false.

Farmer also claimed during the interview that Vicky Ward, a former writer for Vanity Fair who now works for CNN, harassed her family after Farmer shared her story. According to Maria Farmer, Vicky Ward told Epstein’s associate and co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell about her attempts to expose the sexual abuse carried out by the pedophile ring.

Farmer expresses that Epstein’s maids were almost all Filipino and further claimed the women had been trafficked in from the Philippines. In the interview, Farmer tells Webb that she witnessed 5 to 10 girls a day come through Epstein’s house questioning what happened to them, “Where are those girls?” 

Farmer also discussed Les Wexner, Epstein’s wealthy financier and owner of the mansion in New Albany, Ohio where Farmer alleges she was abused and prevented from leaving the premise. Wexner has denied any involvement with Epstein’s activities and even claimed that he was a victim of Epstein’s misappropriating his finances. Farmer stated to Webb that when she spoke with the FBI she explained to them that Wexner was “the head of the snake”, but her warnings resulted in no action from authorities.

Webb noted to Farmer that “every time she went on mainstream interviews and mentioned Wexner they cut it out.” Even further, Farmer told Webb that Wexner was the head of the “Israeli Intelligence Central blackmail op” and that Ghislaine Maxwell answered to Wexner. Farmer also accused Wexner of collaborating with the CIA and Israeli Mossad. Farmer echoes a claim similarly made by Ari Ben-Menashe a former Israel Military Intelligence official that both Maxwell and Epstein were Mossad.

Webb previously exposed Epstein’s connections to the CIA and Mossad in a series of articles on the disgraced pedophile. In one article Webb interviews Bob Fitrakis writing, “Epstein and his only known billionaire “client,” Leslie Wexner, would later forge a business relationship with the CIA front company Southern Air Transport and play a major role in the airline’s relocation to Columbus, Ohio in the mid-1990s. During that period, two prominent Ohio officials believed that both Epstein and Wexner were working with the CIA, according to Ohio-based journalist Bob Fitrakis.”

Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested earlier this month, but many fear for her life due to the connections she has to rich and powerful people who were involved with the pedophile ring. Even the prison officials are worried she could be assasinated that’s why they are moving her from cell to cell.
