Cruel and unusual punishment

According to the Winnipeg Sun, the CIA reportedly used the music of the Red Hot Chili Peppers to torture a confession out of an al-Qaida terrorist.

Surely this warrants an investigation by the criminal court at the Hague - this has got to be worse than waterboarding. I suppose it could have been worse - they didn't use the thermonuclear device of music torture: Celine Dion.
