I wouldn't advise either to mortgage the house for a career in comedy. It would be a win-win for us, but a lose-lose for them.

ACK! The Terror Of Second Hand Smoke

The IG's office described this smoke-blowing as one of several "unauthorized or undocumented techniques" it discovered had been used in isolated incidents by CIA employees interrogating high-level al-Qaida terrorists. "
An Agency (redacted phrase) interrogator admitted that, in December 2002, he and another (redacted phrase) smoked cigars and blew cigar smoke in al-Nashiri's face during the interrogation," said the IG report.
The IG, however, was unable to clearly establish that the smoke-blowing was intended to force Nashiri to cough up what he knew about al-Qaida's plans.
"The interrogator claimed they did this to 'cover the stench' in the room and to help keep the interrogators alert late at night," said the IG report. "This interrogator said he would not do this again based on 'perceived criticism.' Another agency interrogator admitted that he also smoked cigars during two sessions with al-Nashiri to mask the stench in the room. He claimed he did not deliberately force smoke into al-Nashiri's face." The interrogators learned their lesson: Don't blow smoke at terrorists.
The report did not mention the unauthorized second hand smoke at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon nor the effects of this technique on people near the crash site of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania.

I Was A Teenage Terrorist!

"Allah Akbar" were the baby's first words. "Jihad" followed within minutes of birth and by the first feeding he had become one with the Mujahid.

'I was 12 when I was arrested and sent to Guantanamo'...
“It was a jail and I wasn’t happy there — I didn’t feel very good,” he said, shrugging his shoulders. “They threatened me a little. I will tell all of this tomorrow.”

Some human rights activists accept the Pentagon’s assertion that Mr Jawad was 16 or 17 when arrested. But they also say that it could take years for him to recover from the trauma of being detained in such a way for so many of his formative years.

His mother, when asked about terror victim's formative years, remained silent as she checked for bumps on the back of his head.

He will be detained on orders of the village elders until they release him to study, possibly, in the US.

"No problem."
