Bin Laden driver liked fries with that interrogation
Hot McDonald's french fries and a call home encouraged Salim Hamdan to cooperate under interrogation but Osama bin Laden's driver did not like cold fries and isolation upset him, witnesses said at his Guantanamo war crimes trial on Friday.
"Mr. Hamdan commented that he liked McDonald's fries and we brought fries in," FBI special agent George Crouch told Hamdan's terrorism war crimes trial before a U.S. military commission. "Mr. Hamdan even appreciated that McDonald's fries are not good cold."
Hamdan grew upset and uncooperative when he put in solitary confinement amid a series of interrogations, prompting a heated complaint by Crouch to military guards.
Another time, Hamdan's mood lifted when he was allowed to call and tell his wife that he was alive seven months after his capture in November 2001.
"Mr. Hamdan cried quite a bit," Crouch said. "He was very grateful for the opportunity to speak to his wife. A burden had been lifted from him. At least his wife knew he was alive.
Hamdan, described by his lawyers as a low-level worker, has said he was subjected to sleep deprivation and sexual improprieties while confined.
Hamdan was never read the rights against self-incrimination that suspects in U.S. criminal and military cases get and military commission judge Capt. Keith Allred has ruled what Hamdan told interrogators can be used against him in court.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
