"Honest, I confessed because I was tortured" said the 24 stones prisoner. The diet of lettuce leaves was too much to bear. On the promise of chips, he says, he confessed.   His case was tried and he was sentenced to a lengthy term for his crimes.

The American Appeal Court dismissed the grounds of appeal.

I think that may be a bad day for America. If Taliban heard about this case, they may torture the captured American soldiers by feeding them vegetables. I think USA is doomed! All the secrets will leak. The war will be lost ;)

Ah. You forgot the prime problem, it wasn't the vegetables that got to the heavy guy, it was the lettuce leaves. They are a lot less substantial than, say, a chunk of broccoli or a carrot!
