New British Reality Show

Chrenkoff found an interesting experiment being conducted by Channel 4 in Britain.

A group of volunteers has been locked up in cages and sexually humiliated in a British reality show that seeks to explore the use of torture by recreating conditions inside the Guantanamo Bay detention center.

The four-part series on Channel 4 asks whether torture methods applied at the notorious U.S. Navy base in Cuba and other prisons in places such as Iraq and the United States can be justified in efforts to combat terrorism, a spokesman for the station said.

"The information gained through torture has been justified as the center of the war against terrorism," said the spokesman, who asked to remain anonymous.

"We want the viewers to watch techniques that we know are used at Guantanamo and to really raise questions about whether torture is justified and if it works and what does it say about our values as a Western society," he told AFP Tuesday.

I have an idea. Why don't we gather up a bunch of European leftists and put them on "Survivor: 9/11"? Let's put them in a towering inferno to see who makes it out alive. To make it more realistic, let's send them to the memorial services (no bodies for funerals) of friends and loved ones who died. Then our special terrorist guest contestant makes it clear that it is his ambition to destroy you, your loved ones and your country through any means possible. At the end of the show, we conduct interviews with the surviving contestants to see if using loud music, sleep deprivation and wearing women's panties on your head is still impermissible in the interrogation of terrorists.

But it probably wouldn't work. Liberal self loathing is so great that the contestants will likely think they deserved what happened to them and beg the terrorist for forgiveness. Aggressive questioning of terrorists in an effort to prevent future attacks would still be out of the question in their minds.
