250_bush_pimp.jpgIn an eye-popping essay, author Naomi Wolf accuses George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Condoleezza Rice of running an “organized sex-crime ring” at Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo Bay, “in which the trafficked sex slaves were US-held prisoners.” According to Wolf, the use of sex as a torture device was promoted by the administration, and according to Guantánamo Bay Staff Judge Advocate Diane Beaver, during sex torture brainstorming sessions among officials, “You could almost see their dicks getting hard as they got new ideas.” Sex torture techniques included the smearing of menstrual blood on the faces of prisoners, forcing prisoners to engage in simulated sex acts, and, ultimately, anal sodomy. By denying that the US government oversaw the sexual torture of detainees, Wolf writes, “Americans are behaving like a dysfunctional family by shielding sex criminals in their midst through silence.” In an Op-Ed piece, porn scribe Mark Kernes points out the hypocrisy of a government that indicts pornographers for making adult videos as it perpetrates “sexual assaults committed on helpless captives.”
