Hope this isn't too off-topic.
In one of the other threads, someone mentioned that Bob certainly did a great job un-brainwashing the reporter in less than 18 hours. A little unbelievable?
Does anyone on this Board have any knowledge of brainwashing techniques and de-programming? How long would it take, and would a Ranger do the work, or a trained shrink?
I reada little about de-programming people out of cults, and I'm pretty certain it takes many days, and a lot of supervision after the de-programming to prevent recidivism.
Another question--what is the meaning of the term "Stockholmed" and where did this word come from?
One more question--do you all think that people (reporters, soldiers, missionaries, etc.) who are captured by the terrorists are brainwashed, and that we don't see these people until they have been re-programmed?
