GUANTANAMO BAY, CUBA
Top presidential advisor Karl Rove arrived at Guantanamo Bay naval base in Cuba, otherwise known as Gitmo, for an intensive, three day detainment starting Monday morning.
Rove, suspected of knowingly outing a covert CIA operative to retaliate for cricitcism against the White House, will be thoroughly beaten and humiliated for several days while he is subsequently starved and made to urinate on himself.
"This is just standard operating procedure," said an unnamed Marine working as an interrogator. "We bring 'em in, break 'em down, and tell them they're worthless human beings."
Some commentators have found it ironic that Bush administration officials would be held under the same inhumane, cruel and un-American conditions that they helped to promote.
Rove is expected to leave Wednesday, hopefully after divulging more information that will be of use to Federal Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. The information he admits to under extreme, torturous conditions may prove useful in indentifying the real source of the CIA leak.
