"Mitch" on Glen Beck's radio show

Today Glen Beck will field a call from a listener named "Mitch". "Mitch" will claim to be a former intelligence officer. During his call, he will claim to have personally tortured foreign detainees by burning their retinas with high-powered Halogen lamps and bursting their eardrums using high-pressure water and air.

In response to "Mitch's" confession, Beck will respond "I've got to tell you I appreciate your service". Beck will then ask the caller if he has problems sleeping at night. When "Mitch" responds "No", Beck will respond "Good for you. I have to tell you when all's said and done I'm glad people like you are on our side."
