Gitmo ‘truth serum’ revealed

IRIB – Recently declassified US documents point to the forcible administration of a ‘truth serum’ of severe side effects to all the detainees at the US notorious prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

 

The Sydney Morning Herald reported on Sunday the documents detailed operating procedures for nursing staff at the facility, including the use of the drug, named scopolamine.
According to the paper, information released by the CIA has shown that scopolamine had been disqualified as a truth drug because of its many undesirable side effects, including hallucinations, disturbed perception, headaches, rapid heartbeat, and blurred vision.
The Guantanamo facility is widely regarded as one of the American torture chambers reserved for Muslims with “suspected” ties to anti-US terrorism.

Together with the US Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan and the Baghdad Central Prison, formerly known as the Abu Ghraib prison, the center has reportedly hosted the most controversial cases of systematic abuse and torture.
