    Khalid Al-Jhani was, at one time, an explosives trainer for Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan. He was later captured and held in Guantanamo for over four years. He was then returned to Saudi Arabia where he passed through a rehab programme that the Saudis created a few years ago. Today he leads an almost normal life. This is part of a series of films made for the UN looking at how and why people leave terror groups.

      Subversivmesse Linz/Austria, 2009 (Fair for Subversion) Psychotic events and practices happen unnoticed and slowly over time, to fully accept them we need to acclimatize and familiarize ourselves with it. Mixing Supermax brightness with blacksite darkness, a unique mix of physical pain with digital interrogation software. We do not emulate reality – our world is staged, superficial and glamourous, but still the user can experience the ubiquitous perversion and go into a supervised shock. We deny the concept of torture as self defense, but we accept it as part of rock culture. Further performances Cabaret Voltaire Zuerich, Yokohama / Tokyo, Jerusalem, Vienna, Belfast.

        TORTURECLASSICS FROM BRITNEY TO BARNEY ALBUM RELEASE, INFOMERCIAL & PERFORMANCE Sit back and relax, as we make this incredible music come alive! http://TORTURECLASSICS.COM TIME LIFE announces the release of the TORTURE CLASSICS COLLECTION. Torture Music is the kind of music that’s perfect for sitting in the Afghan or Iraqi Desert, sharing a prisoner for a night, or relaxing in a military barack or a CIA black site in some godforsaken country on a lazy afternoon. It's music thats just makes you feel free and drives others crazy. But, the artists included in the TORTURE CLASSICS COLLECTION have taken the Torture Music sound and given it a psychotic and everlasting quality. This Torture Music compilation includes 60 songs, tons of images, uncensored videos, pdfs and extra bonus material. The Ultiimate Collection DOWNLOAD-DVD inlcudes both The White Site Album and The Black Site Album. Anonymous: “The Barney Song has a sound that was designed to make children feel safe and loved. But it was used to torture people and to drive them to their emotional breaking point. Music publisher Jive Records changed Britney Spears song title from “Hit me Baby One More Time” to “... Baby One More Time” to get rid of the ambiguous undercurrent to the catchy pop smash hit”. Sgt. Mark Hadsell: “If you play the same song for 24 hours, your brain and body functions start to slide, your train of thought slows down, and your will is broken. That’s when we come in and talk to them”. Guantanamo Prisoner Ruhal Ahmed: “I can bear being beaten up, it’s not a problem. Once you accept that you’re going to go into the interrogation room and be beaten up, it’s fine. You can prepare yourself mentally. But when you’re being psychologically tortured, you can’t. From the end of 2003 they introduced the music, and it became even worse. Before that, you could try and focus on something else. It makes you feel like you are going mad. You lose the plot. And it’s very scary to think that you might go crazy because of all the music, because of the loud noise, and because after a while you don’t hear the lyrics at all, all you hear is heavy banging.” LINKS: Hans Bernhard: “With TORTURE CLASSICS and the 24h-TORTURE-GALA-PERFORMANCE, we create a spectacular media-event and a s(e)oul-penetrating product. We shine a “single” spot-light on this dark world of sonic military interrogation.” James Powderly: “Now, you too can own the TORTURE CLASSICS COLLECTION, America's Red-Hot and Dark-Blue Torture Hits. The DOWNLOAD-DVD is designed to enhance US security, keep Americans safe and preserve freedom at home and in the rest of this festering, sad and unstable world. I could listen to these magical tunes over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over...” Stevie Benton of Drowning Pool, which has played to U.S. troops in Iraq, told Spin magazine, “I take it as an honor to think that perhaps our song could be used to quell another 9/11 attack or something like that."

            Superenhanced UBERMORGEN.COM, 2007-2010 http://superenhanced.com The mastergraph is the visual interface to design and visually program the Superenhanced Generator. What you see are questions and paths of interrogations. Link to the Mastergraph in 2D: http://www.superenhanced.com/areas/2/graph The Superenhanced Generator is an interrogation software which automizes, dehumanizes, familiarizes and therefore optimizes examination. The willing user is presented a set of questions; it does not matter if ones answers truthfull, lies or avoids being specific, the system looks for answers it needs to satisfy it's database. The digital tool uses google and facebook to back-check on personal user-data thus generating further intelligence. The questioning does not stop after one session, but continues via email and in real-life during performances, bio-mechanic aspect of the project, the machine interrogates, controls, instrumentalizes and decides about interrogated humans thorough human interfaces (interrogators). The engine starts to communicate with the detainee on different layers as soon as email & name are retrieved. The interrogated person is caught in a kafkaesk system of simulated reality. There are exit-points, but the detainee has to answer all the questions correctly to find a point of departure into freedom. All interrogation-results are fed into our global-database. The machine starts to determine questions by itself and grow and change autonomously. We can then watch the system like a lilving organism and see how it adapts to different security situations. The system can be sold to governments or corporations to interrogate people in schools, airports, sportsevents & political ralleys where large numbers of humans have to be processed with security-intelligence to identify potential threats. We can then simply let the software decide everything by itself – that way no human will be responsible for any acts commited any longer during any interrogation in the first place. Project Documentation: http://ipnic.org/superenhanced The Generator was used by UBERMORGEN.COM during several performances in Switzerland (Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich), Northern Ireland (ISEA09 in Belfast), Palestine/Israel (Jerusalem, Ramallah), Linz (Austria, Subversivmesse) and South Africa (Johannesburg) to guide UBERMORGEN.COM personell trough the interrogations, to instruct them on questions and actions and to release them from responsibility. RULES OF ENGAGEMENT DURING THIS TEST, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ANSWER CORRECTLY. IF YOU ARE PRESENTED WITH A QUESTION YOU FEEL YOU CANNOT ANSWER DUE TO IGNORANCE ABOUT AN ISSUE, PLEASE MAKE AN ESTIMATED GUESS. IF AT ANY TIME YOU WANT TO PAUSE YOUR TEST, WAIT UNTIL YOU GET ASKED IF YOU FEEL LIKE PAUSING. This document contains the code-list with description of 29 solo and combined interrogation techniques. It concludes that the methods did not constitute torture under United States law. The combination of interrogation methods are allowed. http://www.ipnic.org/superenhanced/pdf/Superenhanced_techique_Code_list.pdf Thoughts on Torture by Domenico Quaranta: http://ipnic.org/superenhanced/description.html Superenhanced Youtube Playlist: http://ipnic.org/superenhanced/yt_playlist/ Videography by Philipp Teister

              Kirk speaks to two drivers who are upset because he's flipped the Adbusters flag upside down and put it in the snow. That people are more upset about a false symbol being on the ground than the fact that hundreds of men and children have been tortured by the country this flag supposedly represents is continually disheartening. Although I'll bet about 90% of those viewing this will side with the guy in the red shirt, I still think posting it is worthwhile.

                While far from the first racist remarks we've heard in West Des Moines, this is the first we actually got on video. For those who can't quite hear him, the guy's parting words are, "I ought to string you up like a f*cking n*gger."
