It’s about time someone spelled it out. Waterboarding is not torture.
GWEN IFILL: Do you think that waterboarding, as I described it, constitutes torture?
SEN. KIT BOND: There are different ways of doing it. It’s like swimming, freestyle, backstroke. The waterboarding could be used almost to define some of the techniques that our trainees are put through, but that’s beside the point. It’s not being used.
That ought to put an end to this ridiculous discussion. Surf’s up, dude!
