Believe Me, It’s Torture

Christopher Hitchens tested his belief that waterboarding is not torture and wrote about it here: http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2008/08/hitchens200808. The Air Force this week declassified its training course on enhanced interrogation techniques, including the information that the course was a Communist Chinese torture manual used on American servicemen during the Korean War. The story here: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/02/us/02detain.html?adxnnl=1&adxnnlx=1215026775-I7jDEV6ekDU87c85n7fwpw. Check these things out and then let us know if you still think waterboarding and other “enhanced interrogation techniques” aren’t torture.
