Women’s bodies used in Gitmo interrogations

The military is “using” women as part of its interrogation tactics against terrorism suspects. And that doesn’t mean women are simply the ones asking questions.
Female military interrogators and civilian contractors at Guantanamo tried to break male Muslim prisoners by showing off their tight T-shirts and thong underwear, rubbing their breasts on prisoners’ backs and wiping fake menstrual blood on prisoners, according to a new book that is “classified as secret pending a Pentagon review.”
Did the military encourage women to conduct interrogations this way? Or did the women themselves come up with this “creative” method? Either way, it’s disgusting.
Any thoughts?
