An enema in your ass so you can be shoved onto a CIA plane in a box for 30 hours without crapping yourself. All this done without a shred of what any court in the world would accept as proof. Detained for years. Tortured, molested, threatened, left to die.

You know what I would do if the American government did that to me? I would go home and spend the rest of my days trying to kill any fucking American I could. The return in the “inmates return to terrorism” should simply be turn. Plus, it’s total fucking bullshit anyway–
