Torture Al Qaeda Style

Bruce linked this at No Looking Backwards. I'd say definitely not work friendly.

Not pleasant, but certainly makes water boarding look like a Sunday stroll. I find the smiling faces of the torturers in the drawings somewhat disturbing.
MAY 24--In a recent raid on an al-Qaeda safe house in Iraq, U.S. military officials recovered an assortment of crude drawings depicting torture methods like "blowtorch to the skin" and "eye removal." Along with the images, which you'll find on the following pages, soldiers seized various torture implements, like meat cleavers, whips, and wire cutters. Photos of those items can be seen here.
But of course, Amnesty International seems more concerned with condemning the US than having any perspective on the fight.
