Bill Sienkiewicz 1986-1987: excerpts from Elektra: Assassin #4-8

Kuljit Mithra of manwithoutfear.com asks Sienkiewicz a question many of us had…

Whose idea was it to use the photo of ‘Ken Wind’? Whose photo is that?

Sienkiewicz: Mine, and Ken Wind doesn’t exist except in pieces. It weirded me out, when years later George Bush chose Dan Quayle as his V.P. I thought, “Ken Wind has come to life.” Turns out it was not too far from the truth.

I love Sienkiewicz’s use of the unchanging Xerox face as the mask the Beast uses in his guise of a politician. I see this same mask in almost every politician in front of the news cameras to this day.

Also brilliantly noteworthy is the bitter little Nixon/Reagan amalgam caricature Sienkiewicz created for the unnamed incumbent President. Sienkiewicz would return to political-themed projects in the future with 1989’s Brought to Light and 1990’s Friendly Dictators.

'To the point of death' - details of CIA's secret torture methods revealed

Sep. 8 2014

The Central Intelligence Agency took top al-Qaeda suspects close “to the point of death” by drowning them in water-filled baths during interrogation sessions in the years that followed the September 11 attacks, far beyond the waterboarding details so far revealed, according to an intelligence source.

The description of the torture meted out to at least two leading al-Qaeda suspects, including the alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, far exceeds the conventional understanding of waterboarding, or “simulated drowning” so far admitted by the CIA.

"They weren’t just pouring water over their heads or over a cloth," said the source who has first-hand knowledge of the period. "They were holding them under water until the point of death, with a doctor present to make sure they did not go too far. This was real torture."

The account of extreme CIA interrogation comes as the US Senate prepares to publish a declassified version of its so-called “torture report”, a 3600-page document based on a review of several million classified CIA documents.

Publication of the report is currently being held up by a dispute over how much of the 480-page public summary should remain classified, but it is expected to be published within weeks.

A second source who is familiar with the Senate report said that it contained several unflinching accounts of some CIA interrogations which, the source predicted, would “deeply shock” the general public.

Dianne Feinstein, the Democrat chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee that wrote the report has promised that it will expose “brutality that stands in stark contrast to our values as a nation”. The Senate report is understood to accuse the CIA of lying and of grossly exaggerating the usefulness of torture.
