Waterboarding, Torture and Pelosi

Is waterboarding torture? One shock jock says yes, after he had himself waterboarded.

Then again, as I have said before, to me, withholding my caffiene in the morning would be considered cruel torture in my eyes, so should that really be the question, in and of itself?

Shouldn't the narrative and debate focus more on if waterboarding and other harsh interrogation tactics should be used when lives are at stake?

You can ask whether torture works, all day long, you can debate the issue, but considering that the use of waterboarding and other tactics resulted in stopping a second wave attack against Los Angeles after 9/11...... debating that is useless.

So, we come down to the question of whether saving lives is worth it?

Recent polls show that Americans see waterboarding as torture, but 50 percent agreed with Bush's use of such techniques when American lives were at stake.

Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Next: The Nancy Pelosi to do about what she knew and when she knew it, is still raging publicly.
