Where have you been?
I've been to Baghdad,
To see Saddam Hussein.
What did you there?
I frightened a prisoner
Wired, standing in air.
Who next did you treat?
I rendered a prisoner
Like a piece of meat.
Where is your secret prison?
You will find out soon enough.
Doubt about you has arisen.

The ends always justify the means, don't they?
