Navy Times reports:  Angry that he was not invited to a group dinner, the commander of a Navy flight squadron hurled insults at subordinates and slapped another sailor several times while they were all drinking at a bar in Bahrain, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

Stars & Stripes reports that:  The U.S. military on Friday issued a peninsula-wide curfew for all U.S. troops in South Korea, one day after South Korean authorities took custody of a U.S. soldier accused of raping an 18-year-old Korean woman.

“Given the incidents that have occurred over the last several months, I’m reinstating the curfew to assess current conditions, mission requirements, and potential force protection concerns.”

Today’s Zaman reports: 

A noncommissioned air force officer who was subjected to hypnosis and torture during his interrogation by military investigators has been acquitted of several charges involving falsification of official documents, in a rare ruling that also emphasizes that the NCO has the right to seek compensation for the abuse he suffered during his interrogation.

No this did not happen in the U.S. But it could have; the idea of the “hypnotism” that is.  I well remember a number of years ago some NCIS agents bragging about how they did that – a fake hypnotism – to get a confession.  These were the same agents who used the copy-machine is a lie detector trick.  You know that one right.

Agent:  Is your name X?

Answer:  Yes.  Agent presses the start button.

Machine prints TRUE.

Agent:  Did you steal X?

Answer:  No.
