Paramilitary Secret Police Kidnap, Detain, Torture Bilderberg

Interrogators threatened to "cut off arms" during 6 hour marathon of

Paul Joseph Watson, Prison, June 29, 2006

Three Canadian citizens who visited the Brookestreet Hotel in Ottawa
to observe members of the Bilderberg Group earlier this month were
kidnapped, detained without charge and suffered the ordeal of a
marathon interrogation session and psychological torture--including
threats to "cut off the arms" of one of the victims.

The nightmare began on June 9th, the second day of the Bilderberg
conference. After being warned to leave the previous day, Joe Burd's
party of three left the site of the Brookestreet Hotel at 2pm where he
and Crystal Slack headed for a local bar, while Burd's friend,
electrician Don McCormick, rested in their rented vehicle which was
parked on a downtown street.

What happened next should chill the core of anyone who thinks that
westerners still live in a free society.

Joe Burd picks up the story.

"A military-grade task force involving local police, RCMP and members
of the 'Integrated National Security Enforcement Team' descended
around the rental vehicle with weapons pointed at Mr. McCormick. He
was abruptly and forcibly taken into custody from his vehicle, thrown
to the ground and kicked in head."[1]

After approaching the vehicle, Burd and his friend Crystal Slack were
also grabbed and kidnapped, taken to a RCMP holding facility, detained
without charges, harassed and interrogated for hours about their
connections to the "insurgent" and "threat to national security" Alex
Jones, who himself had been detained and interrogated for 15 hours at
the hands of Canadian immigration the previous day.[2]

They were the lucky ones.

McCormick was taken to a secret high security facility where he was
brutally interrogated without charge and mentally tortured for six
hours. He was accused of wanting to blow up the Brookestreet Hotel, as
the interrogators threatened to "cut off his arms" warning him that
they also "had his friends" in custody. This is the very definition of
psychological torture, the threat of physical harm and dismemberment.

One of the dictionary definitions of torture is, "dismemberment,
taking apart--the removal of limbs; being cut to pieces."[3] The
threat of extreme physical pain is a method used on suspected
terrorists and was also inflicted upon innocent prisoners at Abu

McCormick's anguish at the hands of the Canadian Gestapo didn't end

Interrogators told McCormick that he "would never be alone again" and
to "watch his back"--as he began to fear he would become the latest
victim of the worldwide rendition policy, and be taken to an Eastern
European gulag for further torture.[4]

McCormick was so stricken by the horror of his nightmare that many of
the details of what happened remained bottled up, partly from
threatened fear of reprisals if he told anyone what had occurred.

Finally being released and returning home the next day, McCormick
became delirious and had to be rushed to hospital after he collapsed.
He was diagnosed with severe dehydration and mental fatigue due to his
experiences in Ottawa. McCormick had to be sedated to help him sleep
as he babbled about having his arms cut off and interrogators
threatening to harm his friends.

From the experiences of Alex Jones during his 15 hour ordeal with
Canadian immigration officials, it was learned that the order to
impede Jones' party came directly from the Bilderberg Group itself.
With this knowledge in hand, it is by no means a stretch to assume
that the hellish treatment of Burd, McCormick and Slack was also a
mandate of the Bilderberg elitists.

These are the pleasures of the global elite and their security thug
enforcers--repression of free speech, intimidation, kidnapping,
grabbing people off the streets and treating them as terrorists, and
psychological torture--all carried out under the wilful arrogance that
they are protecting the nation from harm.

The real terrorists are the perverted bullies that kidnapped three
peaceful citizens and subjected them to a marathon of hell--and they
represent a threat to the freedom and way of life of all Canadians.

Crushing Children's Testicles

John Choon Yoo ( ,
) is a professor of law at the University of California at Berkeley
School of Law (Boalt Hall), one of the authors of the Patriot Act, and
is one of the main White House legal advisers on the use of torture to
President George Bush, Jr. Prof. John Yoo emigrated from South Korea
with his parents when he was an infant, and is now married to Elsa
Arnett, the daughter of reporter Peter Arnett.

Douglass Cassel ( ) is the
Lilly Endowment Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Civil
and Human Rights at Notre Dame Law School.

The below excerpt is from a debate between Prof. John Yoo and Prof.
Doug Cassel on December 1, 2005 in Chicago:

Prof. Doug Cassel: If the President deems that he's got to torture
somebody, including by crushing the testicles of the person's child,
there is no law that can stop him?

Prof. John Yoo: No treaty.

Cassel: And also no law by Congress. That's what you wrote in the
August 2002 memo.

Yoo: I think it depends on why the President thinks he needs to do

Children," Philip Watts, Revolution Newspaper (


Since H.R. 3162, i.e., the "USA Patriot Act," was passed into law on
October 26, 2001 without the Congress or Senate even being allowed to
read it before voting on it, the police can now secretly search your
house and take whatever they want from it without having to tell you
about it until they issue you a warrant up to six months later (see
SEC. 213). Also, the legal definition of "domestic terrorism" was
changed to include any "acts dangerous to human life that are a
violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State"
(see SEC. 802)--which could quite literally be jaywalking.

Indeed, smoking a joint could quite literally be domestic terrorism as
defined under this law, since the U.S. government considers such drug
use to be dangerous to human life, and since it is illegal after all.
But such an act is supposed to only qualify if it "appear[s] to be
intended to influence the policy of a Government by intimidation or
coercion." So smoking a joint would only be an act of "domestic
terrorism" if the U.S. Government thinks a person is doing it as a
protest against their drug laws--the clause for "intimidation" already
applies, otherwise the U.S. government would have no law against it.

And since P.L. 107-40 (September 18, 2001) was enacted and Bush, Jr.
signed the November 13, 2001 Presidential Military Order, *habeas
corpus* has been done away with as U.S. citizens can now be held
indefinitely and in secret on the mere suspicion that they are in some
way involved in "terrorism" (which can now be virtually anything--see
the above redefined definition of "domestic terrorism") without even
being charged; they can be tried by a secret military tribunal where
they will not have the right to cross-examine their accusers; and they
can be executed in secret. Indeed, U.S. citizens have already been
held for years without any charges even having been filed against them
(such as José Padilla and Yaser Esam Hamdi), and the U.S. government
says that it can keep U.S. citizens that way indefinitely.

So it's not surprising to find that the U.S. government has been
torturing innocent people, including U.S. citizens. This includes U.S.
soldiers torturing people in U.S. custody to death.

physical violence towards prisoners, acts that can only be described
as blatantly sadistic, cruel and inhuman ... There are a lot more

fact. I mean, I looked at them last night and they're hard to

The U.S. government has been training its troops and foreign NATO and
U.N. military for a long time (i.e., well before the U.S.
government-staged 9/11 attacks) in putting U.S. citizens in
concentration camps and for total gun confiscation.

Watch Alex Jones's first two Police State video documentaries (both
published well before the U.S. government-staged 9/11 attacks) where
you can see U.S. troops training with U.N. troops in disarming
American citizens and putting them into concentration camps, and
anouncing over their loudspeakers: "Be calm, there is food, there is
water in the camp ... violation of camp rules will not be tolerated

They had American role-players screaming back at the U.S. and foreign
U.N. troops, "I'm an American! I'm an American! You can't do this to
me! I have rights!"

On Alex Jones's first two Police State video documentaries you can see
many more of these training exercizes conducted in other cities and
towns. Below you can watch Alex Jones's first two Police State videos
in full and for free:

Police State 2000 (published 1999):

Police State II: The Takeover (published 2000):

There have literally been hundreds of these type of training exercizes
going on in the U.S. since the early 1990s. For example, see:

Operation Urban Warrior, Oakland, California 1999:

Australian, British and other foreign troops training with U.S. troops
for total gun confiscation of U.S. citizens and in rounding up U.S.
citizens into concentration camps at Operation Urban Warrior, Oakland,
California 1999
