image for Iraq Abuse: Prisoners Forced to Watch Friends Finale
Abuses Reach an All Time High

More photos and video clips have been released to US Senators today along with the most shocking human rights violations reported to date in the controversial Baghdad Abu-Ghraib prison.

After instructions to abandon the previously reported measures of torture and interrogation within the Baghdad compound reports have come forward that CIA operatives have forced Iraqi Prisoners of War to watch the final episode of Friends.

Although reluctant to come forward at first, Soldier F claimed that after interrogators threatened a difficult prisoner with the whole Season 1 DVD he could take no more and broke the story to USA Today.

Speaking from a secret location, Solider F described the abuses; "Prisoners were taken into solitary rooms with a TV and tied to a chair with their eyes held open. They were made to clap in time with the theme tune and forced to state on camera whether they preferred Phoebe or Rachael. It was degrading."

"This is just showing the people of Iraq the worst examples of what democracy can provide."

The leaked guidelines for interrogation have showed that those prisoners who can withstand a forced screening of Friends are to be shown episodes of "Sex and The City" until they crack.

Amnesty International are calling for the interrogators to be prosecuted in the International War Crimes Tribunal.
