Reuters reports Mohammed Jaber of Lebanon says he went to Iraq on a pilgrimage to Muslim holy sites, but ended up being “tortured” with loud rap music by U.S. troops suspicious he might be a foreign fighter against their occupation. Jaber said an Iraqi taxi driver handed him and three friends over to U.S. troops for $100 each in April apiece as fighters for ousted Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. “They asked us why we were there and if we came to fight them. But we said we came only to visit the holy sites in Kerbala,” he said. “They didn’t torture us physically but they did psychologically by raising the volume of rap music all day until it became unbearable and by withholding food.”
