Blowing Smoke About Detainee Interrogation

The techniques we used to extract information from al Qaeda prisoners has been a source of continuing controversy. One recent development is the disclosure that we apparently blew cigar smoke into the face of some of them. Well . . . .

Our doing enhanced interrogation
Is, we’re told, beyond explanation.
Among our crimes, and this is no joke,
In terrorists’ faces, they blew cigar smoke.

This is a thing we surely should rue then,
Unless, of course, the cigars were Cuban.
If that was the case, and they did it for free,
Please ask them to come and do it to me.
