Sesame Street Used to "Break" Prisoners at Guantanamo Bay?

by at . Comments

Detainees at Guantanamo Bay subjected to Sesame Street music for days on end in efforts to break their will, according to an Al Jazeera documentary.

In the film, called "Songs of War," detainees at the U.S. Naval base have been forced to wear headphones blaring Sesame Street music on repeat.

All in the name of messing with them so badly that they'll talk.

The award-winning Sesame Street composer Christopher Cerf (2:00 mark above) tells Al Jazeera, "My first reaction was 'this just can't possibly be true.'"

"I didn't care for the idea that I was helping break down prisoners, but it was much worse when I heard later that they were actually using the music in Guantanamo for long-term interrogations and obviously to inflict pain on prisoners so they would talk."

Wow. Elmo can get a little annoying after awhile, but really?

Note to CIA operatives: LFO's "Summer Girls" would work a lot better, or anything by that rumored hermaphrodite Lady Gaga. The extremists HATE her.

Sesame Street? Are you kidding me? Those people at Guantanamo Bay are acting like 7-year-olds. Truly weird.
