Re: NPR: right-wing shock jock gets waterboarded, lasts six seconds
Waterboarding is torture. This torture, approved by the Bush Administration, did not result in actionabale intelligence. Fascist wannabes torture. Torture has wrecked the image of the U.S. around the world. The fact that we used torture has been used as a recruitment tool by terrorist groups. This is fact. Nothing good came out of this torture.
