    It was revealed yesterday, that one al Qaida suspect was waterboarded 168 times. I think he was just about ready to tell us where Bib Laden is hiding when Obama stepped in and ended the torture.

    The technique should be moved from Gitmo to Washington D. C.

    Waterboarding is fun, but torture to others.

    No waterboarding or torture for illegals and terrorist suspects, but it is just fine and dandy for the cops to Taze us, kill us with the taze, and nobody seems to bat an eye.....WTF????

    Yup, I work for the local police dept. & we have a tazing quota. Every officer MUST taze at least 30 people a month. Heck, some people love it so much they come in every 1st of the month just to get theirs. LOL
    Those that get tazed obviously did something to deserve it. Colonel

    There must be a reason Wayne LaPiere (NRA) called most leo's jack booted thugs a few years ago.

    Waterboarding real terrorist would be fun. However how many of those jack booted thugs think the government is right about calling conservatives terrorist. Just food for thought.

    I guess we could cut their heads off slowly like they do our people, guess that is more humane.

    Trevor - Lay on your back, put a tee shirt over your face and have someone pour water over the tee shirt. You will then know what waterboarding is. Any U.S. service member who went through SERE training knows how it works. Jimmy Borum

    white rattler, It is simulated drowning. Stated simply, they cover the face with a rag and pour water over it.

    ADDED:jbbor and I answered at the same time. What I don't understand is if it doesn't work after a couple of trys how can it be expected to work on the 183rd attempt.

    I doubt 168 times, by us anyway, come on that is not practical. I don't think the question is what kind of torture, the real question is, do you get results. At some point during torture you will say what ever it is they want you to say just to make it stop. That means anything true or not, so at that point torture is pointless. You would think we have better ways of getting information that is way more reliable wouldn't you???
