AM – Wolfowitz fronts hostile Senate committee: “JACK REED: Mr Secretary, do you think crouching naked for 45 minutes is humane?

PAUL WOLFOWITZ: Not naked, absolutely not.

JACK REED: So if he’s dressed up, that’s fine?

Let me put it this way. 72 hours without regular sleep, sensory deprivation which would be a bag over your head for 72 hours. Do you think that’s humane? And that’s what this says, a bag over your head for 72 hours. Is that humane?

PAUL WOLFOWITZ: Let me come back to what you said the work?

JACK REED: No, no. Answer the question, Secretary. Is that humane?

PAUL WOLFOWITZ: I don’t know whether it means a bag over your head for 72 hours Senator. I don’t know.

JACK REED: Mr Secretary, you’re dissembling, non-responsive. Anybody would say putting a bag over someone’s head for 72 hours, which is sensory deprivation?

PAUL WOLFOWITZ: I believe it’s not humane. It strikes me as not humane, Senator.

JACK REED: Thank you very much.”
