"Waterboarding" is Torture. Or Is It???

So what are we to think? Chief Spy Mike McConnell stated that waterboarding would be torture, if it were done to him.

Okay so far, but McConnell stopped way short of calling it "torture" in the abstract -- i.e., the concrete -- sense. The sense that it is being done on a daily basis to "suspects" in the War on Terratm.

And why not?

The only thing I can think of is that if McConnell, like Mukasey, came right out and called it what it is -- torture -- then they would be turning on their boss.

And we can't have that, can we? I mean the Leader of the Free World condoning acts of torture? It boggles the mind. It really does.

And how many more days of the BFEE do we have to put up with?

Only 367...

I saw it done on UTube, some students tried it on one who volunteered and they video taped it. Sure as hell looks like torture to me. I am sure the Gov doesn't use the kid gloves like they did...
