    Default VP admits knowledge of Waterboarding

    http://www.latimes.com/news/nationwo...,5456856.story

    This is not surprising at all but I think it explains Attorney General Michael Mukasey reluctance to admit Waterboarding is illegal during his confirmation hearings.

    ..and why should it be. These are terrorists. They have no affilaition with any soveriegn nation. They are disposable and should be. Waterboard them, glean what information you can, then dispose of them.

    I know this will bring a lot of fury from any liberasl that read this but these folks are animlas with no remorse and only a seething hatred for Americans and would gladly do it again and again and if they die they think they get to go to Allah and a bunch of virgins.

    Dunk and dispose!

    Sometimes, like in the case of extreme hazard to the nation and or its military extreme means of interrogation are needed. Would anyone have raised a fit if we had been able to waterboard a member of the Imperial Japanese Navy and gotten advance warning on Pearl Harbor that would have some or all of the 2500 US lives that were lost that day?

    I think water boarding and other forms of torture should be legal give the right circumstances. In cases were American life’s are at risk the authorization I think the President should sign a torture warrant. Publically most military brass will tell you that torture never works but privately they will tell you it is a very practical tool. The question each one of us has to ask ourselves is “what would I be willing to do to save a life or protect a nation” had decision but then again we are dealing with some pretty hard people.

    Why are we even calling water boarding extreme. I don't see anything extreme about it. Hell I probably got spankings as a kid worse then that. Just something else for the touchy feely crowd to bitch about.

    Did he ever deny it?
    I think the question is and was is it torture. I personally think some of the opinions expressed by those on the left are a much more torturous than waterboarding.

    It is most certainly torture by any standard you apply. Except of course to the right wing extremists who would have you believe that there is a Waterboard Lite and that somehow that is not torture.

    I am thinking that if info was needed from someone to protect the security of our country or the return of a loved one. I think my preference would be for Dirty Harry over June Cleaver.
