Bush Lashes Out At Therapy For Terrorist Suspects

June 18, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – Former President George W. Bush spoke publicly against the use of therapy for terrorism suspects as a means of working through interrogations, but said nothing about his own administration’s use of the same tactic.

“I told you I’m not going to criticize my successor. I’ll just tell you that there are people at Gitmo that will kill American people at a drop of a hat and I don’t believe that…persuasion isn’t going to work,” Bush was quoted as saying in the Washington Times.

“Therapy isn’t going to cause terrorists to change their mind.”

However, what Bush failed to mention was his own experience into using reformation techniques.

During his administration’s control of the White House, Bush sent eleven detainees from Guantanamo Bay to a Saudi Arabia institution known as Prince Mohammed bin Nayef Centre for Care and Counseling.

One of those detainees was the notorious rebel leader, Mullah Abdullah Zakir, who has gone on to lead rebel forces for al-Qaida against troops in Afghanistan.
