Anybody else want to back up this fool ?
Anybody else feel that water boarding, water torture, or water cure are different things ?
Nope, I'm all for waterboarding.......far more humane than taking a knife to a person's neck

I did, you just either ignored it, or forgot it.
I explained the differance right in there.
Testamony given by the Captain in the trial against the Japanese that you tried to point out.Q: Did the questioners threaten you with any other treatment while you were
A: Yes, I was given several types of torture.... I was given what they call the water
cure.* * *
–noun 1. hydropathy; hydrotherapy.
2. a method of torture in which the victim is forced to drink great quantities of water.
As I explained in that thread.
The Department of Justice's findings regarding Torture and Water Boarding.
http://www.lawofwar.org/Water_Torture_Article.htmAn August, 2002, memo, drafted by John Yoo of the Department Of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel,7 and signed by then Assistant Attorney General (now Judge of the 9th Circuit) Jay Bybee, discussed interrogation methods and whether they might violate U.S. or international law.
According to Newsweek, it:
“...learned that Yoo’s...memo was prompted by CIA questions about what to do with a top Qaeda captive, Abu Zubaydah, who had turned uncooperative. And it was drafted after White House meetings convened by George W. Bush’s chief counsel, Alberto Gonzales, along with Defense Department general counsel William Haynes and David Addington, Vice-President Cheney’s counsel, who discussed specific interrogation techniques, says a source familiar with the discussions. Among the methods they found acceptable: “water-boarding,” or dripping water into a suspect’s face, which can feel like drowning...” Michael Hirsh, John Barry and Daniel Klaidman, A Tortured Debate, Newsweek, 21 June, 2004 at p.52 (emphasis added).
The Yoo Memo’s authors concluded that:
We conclude that torture as defined in and proscribed by Sections 2340-2340A, covers only extreme acts. Severe pain is generally of the kind difficult for the victim to endure. Where the pain is physical, it must be of an intensity akin to that which accompanies serious physical injury such as death or organ failure.
Far as I am concerned, there are only three things to remember when questioning terrorists.Impeach for torture.
Red is positive.
Black is negative.
Make sure his balls are wet.
