tortured for throwing shoes?

marjorie says...

You know the shoe-throwing Iraqi journalist, Muntader Al Zaida? Proxy for so many the world over? Siun at Firedoglake is speculating that he might be undergoing torture: credible Arabic news reports say he has a broken hand, broken ribs, and signs of torture on his thighs. He's been transferred to Camp Cropper, the U.S.-run detention center.
