Waterboarding is “teh suck”:
You can add Eric “Mancow” Muller to the list of conservatives who have admitted Waterboarding is torture after experiencing it first hand:
“I wanted to prove it wasn’t torture,” he said. “They cut off our heads, we put water on their face.” But that’s not how it came out. ” I don’t want to say this,” said Mancow. “Absolutely torture.”
And as several liberal bloggers have pointed out, this is coming from someone briefly experiencing waterboarding in a strictly controlled situation, where he knew he wouldn’t be harmed. What’s even more amazing is that this seemed like waterboarding-lite compared to the experience Christopher Hitchens went through. (Video)
But what really fascinates me the most is the simplicity of waterboarding. Its quick, non evasive, effective and disturbingly simple. Its the kind of torture anyone could do at home using only a black shirt and a gallon of water.
