Donald Duck

So, the Guardian has posted 3 Britons' account of life in Guantanamo (incidentally, do Bush officials still say Cuba is a place with state-sponsored torture?). It's a really gruesome picture, from the physical torture with blunt force to making them squat, shackled, to being exposed to constant strobe lights and a dance remix of Eminem on loop. They say that many of the prisoners have lost mental faculties and are no longer capable of rational conversation, but they are still interrogated. The most bizarre allegation, repeated twice, is that they were shown "photographs of Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Tom and Jerry, Rugrats, Abraham Lincoln, Michael Jackson, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Osama bin Laden and famous people from different countries." WTF? Why?
