Everybody's a Critic

From an very disturbing discussion, in a New York Times blog, of an article by Jane Mayer (The New Yorker) about the adaptation of the military's Survival Evasion Resistance and Escape program to CIA interrogations:

The SERE affiliate told me that trainees often think that the interrogation portion of the program will be the most grueling, but in fact for many trainees the worst moment is when they are made to listen to taped loops of cacophonous sounds. One of the most stress-inducing tapes is a recording of babies crying inconsolably. Another is a Yoko Ono album.
