Bush torture policies: The latest from Gitmo 

Were any of these items on the list that Rummy approved?

Female interrogators tried to break Muslim detainees at the U.S. prison camp in Guantanamo Bay by sexual touching, wearing a miniskirt and thong underwear and in one case smearing a Saudi man's face with fake menstrual blood, according to an insider's written account.

And did the interrogators enjoy their work?

Were they, um, Christians? It's hard to tell:

The female interrogator wanted to "break him," Saar adds, describing how she removed her uniform top to expose a tight-fitting T-shirt and began taunting the detainee, touching her breasts, rubbing them against the prisoner's back and commenting on his apparent erection.

The detainee looked up and spat in her face, the manuscript recounts.

The interrogator left the room to ask a Muslim linguist how she could break the prisoner's reliance on God.

Well, I know that sounds pretty bad, at least from a PR standpoint. But let's be reasonable. After all, how could a Muslim be relying on God? Not possible. We have the word on that from Rummy's deputy, General William Boykin:

“Well, you know what I knew—that my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God, and his was an idol.”

So, that's cleared up. Phew. My faith was shaken for a moment. But now I'm all right.
