Janeane Garofalo used to torture Iraqis

Janeane Garofalo's voice was used to torture Iraqis, and they "hated" it.

Tony Lagouranis is a former military interrogator, who's now telling his story. And, believe it or not, the formerly cute comedienne and former Air America hostess played a role:

Not long ago in Iraq, [Lagouranis] felt "absolute power," he said, over men kept in cages. Lagouranis had forced a grandfather to kneel all night in the cold and bombarded others in metal shipping containers with the tape of the self-help parody "Feel This Book: An Essential Guide to Self-Empowerment, Spiritual Supremacy, and Sexual Satisfaction," by comedians Ben Stiller and Janeane Garofalo. ("They hated it," Lagouranis recalled. "Like, 'Please! Just stop that voice!' ")

In lighter news, Garoffalo appears with Payton Oswald at the Somerville Theatre on June 23. Tickets are $35.

UPDATE: I wonder whether their choice of torture implements was motivated by this?
