Bamboo splints under the fingernails might be more productive than water-boarding. I'm not against electical shock to key body parts if it leads to usable information.
I say, "take the gloves off' when dealing with terrorist!
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

Perry, how about telling us the difference between waterboarding and shooting an unarmed man in the head. Man Crush on Obongolo.
