From the interrogation log of alleged 20th hijacker Mohammed al-Qahtani, on his 28th day of detention, December 20, 2002: ” ‘1115: Told detainee a dog is held in higher esteem. …Began teaching detainee lessons such as stay, come, and bark, to elevate his status to that of a dog. Detainee became agitated. …1300: Dog tricks continue. …Interrogator showed photos of 9-11 victims and told detainee he should bark happy for these people. Interrogator showed photos of Al Qaeda terrorist and told detainee he should growl at these people. A towel was placed on detainee’s head like a burka, and interrogator proceeded to give detainee dance lessons.’ ”
