It’s A Start

Get it on record. If we don’t torture, why should he veto?

The administration particularly opposes restricting the CIA to interrogation methods approved by the military in 2006. That document prohibits forcing detainees to be naked, perform sexual acts, or pose in a sexual manner; placing hoods or sacks over detainees’ heads or duct tape over their eyes; beating, shocking, or burning detainees; threatening them with military dogs; exposing them to extreme heat or cold; conducting mock executions; depriving them of food, water, or medical care; and waterboarding.

Waterboarding is a particularly harsh form of interrogation that involves strapping down a prisoner, covering his mouth with plastic or cloth and pouring water over his face. The prisoner quickly begins to inhale water, causing the sensation of drowning.

It’s just awful, how we tie their hands so. I can’t imagine how on earth the world hasn’t just caved in since 2006.

  1. Ah, but Athenae, we can’t tell the world what we do! We can’t say that we won’t do a particular form of “harsh interrogation” because then the terrorists will buttress themselves against it and the technique will “no longer” be effective.
    Either that or we can’t micromanage the Commander in Chief of us all when he’s involved in playing war games.

  2. But Pansy, you’re confusing waterboarding with torture. As stated by the wonderful senator from my state (MO), waterboarding is just like swimming the backstroke.
    So I’d like to suggest waterboarding Bond to ask about any connections with Abramov and/or questionable campaign contributions – preferrably while he’s swimming across the Mississippi.
