Waterboarding Is Torture, Not An Interrogation Technique

The RRL has a poll question up on the home page asking whether or not the United States should torture people. Or as they put it, “Should the U.S. use waterboarding as an interrogation technique?” When I saw that I almost spit coffee all over my computer screen.

There’s not doubt that the RRL is still, at this point, a “wing nut” paper. But as much as they’d like to frame - maybe we should say torture the English language - waterboarding is not an “interrogation technique”, it’s torture. There’s in no denying that waterboarding is torture. Waterboarding is torture. Waterboarding is torture. Period! And Illegal.

At some point, soorer is better, we will see sea change.
