You know I've been saying we weren't torturing this guys since GITMO opened, but now knowing their forced to listen to the Barney I'm convinced. No wonder these guys are committing suicide. On the other hand, I say we send the purple dinosaur to GITMO and have him do some interrogations. We'd have Osama, his deputy, and the rest of Al-Qaeda rolled up in a week. God bless America!
