Was Jesus in a Safety Position?

Spencer Ackerman brings us this etymological note from Joint Task Force Guantánamo:

Interrogator #2 also described other techniques allowed for interrogators at Bagram that appeared abusive. ”We could play music, yes sir. … Loud music, yes.” A report about Khadr contemporaneous with Interrogator #2’s time in Bagram said Khadr was “sedated” during an interrogation. And Interrogator #2 chafed when Jackson asked if Bagram interrogators could use “stress positions,” replying that they were cleared to use something called “safety positions.”

“Well, first it was called stress positions, wasn’t it?” Jackson asked. “Yes, sir,” Interrogator #2 replied.

That raised Parrish’s interest: “Is there a difference?”

Interrogator #2 replied, “No, sir.”

Jesus was tortured to death. As were many at Guantanamo. Will a new religion arise from those tortured at Guantanamo? Will they be turned into martyrs.

If one considers that this is a danger, then there it is. Paul wrote many years after the death of Jesus. We have created at Guantanamo whole groups of martyrs. Can this grow into a movement? I say: Yes "we" or "they" can. HIstory proves it to be so.
