CIA Under Fire For Fire Ant Interrogation Claims

July 16, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – A memo released from the CIA states that a high ranking official within the organization bragged about he and his team using fire ants during an interrogation. Ouch!

The man, who is anonymous due to his continued presence within a high security level of the CIA, told fellow coworkers that he and others had placed fire ants along the head of a terror suspect they were interrogating.

When asked for comment, the CIA’s official spokesman, Paul Gimigliano, said:

“The CIA did not use insects as part of its terrorist interrogation program. That didn’t happen, period.”

However, the use of insects, including ones that can cause pain without being fatal or harmful, has been officially allowed in the past for use in extreme interrogation.

Between that and the fact that the man in question was reported to have been on several CIA tapes that were mysteriously destroyed in an accident being investigated by officials, many people are questioning the truth of this statement.  Whether it happened or not, there seems to be an endless supply of CIA creativity when it comes to extracting information from unwilling suspects.
