HT to BoingBoing for this article on how the most effective interrogation technique isn’t waterboarding, it’s cookies.
Ali Soufan, a former FBI interrogator, revealed in an article being released in June that Osama Bin Laden’s bodyguard opened up about the 9/11 terror attacks only after being offered — sugar free cookies.
Bin Laden lieutenant Abu Jandal is a diabetic, Soufan said, and wouldn’t eat sugar cookies he’d been offered.
Now, for my erudite politcal discourse:
SERIOUSLY?! FUCKING COOKIES?!?! YOU MEAN THIS COULD HAVE ALL BEEN SOLVED BY EITHER AN EDDIE IZZARD SKETCH OR THE HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE OF ALMOST ANY MAINSTREAM CHURCH IN THE US?!??!?!?!?!?!?
Jesus Christ, have mercy.
And for those of you who don’t know the Eddie Izzard sketch in question, feast your eyes on this very succinct description of my church’s prostelytzing and theology– I give you CAKE OR DEATH.
