Waterboarding: read the comments

Recreational Waterboarding? - The Opinionator - (Suellentrop) has a quick reference to a great example of banal evil, a WSJ OpEd by Bret Stephens. Remember that name so you can stay far away from him.

It's a worthwhile quick post, but the comments hold greater value. I didn't know the US had used waterboarding torture during the Vietnam war, for example. I did know, however, than post WW II the US military considered waterboarding to be grounds for execution.

That's ok though, nobody cares.
