    I'm sure both gender hostages are subject to torture. I don't see rape as being particularly worse than any other torture.

    I do...
    I think rape is a lot worse than a lot of physical pain torture... it's psychological, demeaning, and has an incredible amount of shame.

    rape is like torture of the soul... turning something that's supposed to special, intimate and good into a forced intake of evil men's pleasure and seed.
    I can't think of anything more demeaning... I'd rather be burned to death.

    The Islamic State militant group said on Friday that an American woman hostage it was holding in Syria had been killed when Jordanian fighter jets bombed a building where she was being held, the SITE monitoring group said.

    In Washington, U.S. officials said they could not confirm that the woman, who has been identified as 26-year-old aid worker Kayla Mueller of Prescott, Arizona, had been killed.

    Mueller was the last-known American hostage held by Islamic State, which controls wide areas of Syria and Iraq and has executed five British and American aid workers and journalists in recent months.

    snip...


    Anyone see this coming?

    BO was suppose to be working on her release. Which was after they killed the Japanese prisoner. They don't have to many Foreign Hostages left either. Now what are they going to do for that big money?


    The statement identified the woman as Kayla Jean Mueller and said she was killed during Muslim prayers - which usually take place around midday on Fridays - in airstrikes that targeted "the same location for more than an hour."



    Jordanian government spokesman Mohammed al-Momani said Jordan was looking into the claim. "But as a first reaction, we think it's illogical and we are highly skeptical about it," he said. "How could they identify a Jordanian warplane ... in the sky? What was the American lady doing in a weapons warehouse?" "It's part of their criminal propaganda. They have lied that our pilot is alive and tried to negotiate, claiming he is alive while they had killed him weeks before," al-Momani added......snip~

    We should execute two Gitmo prisoners.

    Torture, despite the fun sounding name, apparently can be both physically and psychologically unpleasant.

    I'm not saying rape isn't, I'm just saying having one extra orifice violated doesn't seem that significant in the grand scheme of ugly things.

    A punch in the face alone is generally not considered torture.

    They usually mean it when they say someone is dead.

    Indeed, they have every motive to tweak the reporting of events that Assad, Netanyahu, Putin or Obama has. Why should anybody be believed without verification. Unfortunately that human us verses them weakness precludes the ability of such critical thought. Therefore, Netanyahu and Obama are always telling us the truth and Putin and the Islamic State are of course, ALWAYS the liars.

    Oh, I can believe she's dead.

    I do have a problem with the contention that she was killed as a result of the attack by Jordan, however.
