Default Now the US Gets Into the UAE Kicking...

ABC News last night (well this morning, it was late nite out!!) screened a report on the video of Sheikh Issa (brother to the Interior Minister) torturing a grain merchant (???) that was 'smuggled' into the US by an ex-business associate Bassam Nabulsi..

Seems like its not just the UK that is taking an interest in the goings-on in the UAE these days...

That video is ****ing disturbing. Is it just me or is ancient Arabic torture handed down through generations a la the Hussein family style?

ABC has every right to air this and criticise those involved. Just as anyone else has the right to criticise the CIA's torture and rendition.
