Secret U.S. Interrogators Break Silence

Filed under: — Gunner @ 10:33 pm

Some former American interrogators have gone on record with stories possible violations of Geneva Conventions, of a secretive detention camp, of actual prisoners of war — not just battlefield detainees, mind you — begin held for months without their captors notifying the Red Cross.

Indeed, so secret was this prison camp that it was called for a while by only a code name: P.O. Box 1142.

For more than 60 years, they kept their military secrets locked deep inside and lived quiet lives as account executives, college professors, business consultants and the like.

The brotherhood of P.O. Box 1142 enjoyed no homecoming parades, no VFW reunions, no embroidered ball caps and no regaling of wartime stories to grandchildren sitting on their knees.

Almost no one, not even their wives, in many cases, knew the place in history held by the men of Fort Hunt, alluded to during World War II only by a mailing address that was its code name.

One by one, some of the surviving 100 or so military intelligence interrogators who questioned Third Reich scientists, submariners and soldiers at one of the United States’s most secretive prisoner camps are, in the twilight of their lives, spilling tales they had dared not whisper before.

Ah, World War II and FDR. One can only wonder if today’s congressional democrats, were they to be thrust back in time, would have been grumbling about investigations and threatening impeachment.

Hat tip to Florida Cracker‘s Donnah, who has a link for more historical information on the camp.
