    And to think that the US executed some of the Japanese for waterboarding after WWII...not something many Americans in support of waterboarding seem to be aware of.
    After World War II, an international coalition convened to prosecute Japanese soldiers charged with torture. At the top of the list of techniques was water-based interrogation, known variously then as 'water cure,' 'water torture' and 'waterboarding,' according to the charging documents. It simulates drowning." Politifact went on to report, "A number of the Japanese soldiers convicted by American judges were hanged, while others received lengthy prison sentences or time in labor camps."

    I'm feeling nauseous.

    I can feel myself under those circumstances just by watching.

    But on the other hand, who are the people we are waterboarding? Are they masterminds we need information from? That most anyone WOULD torture for information? Are they total pieces of filth?

    You're kidding, right? You can't possibly be that naive.
