It's a humane torture...they put a cloth sack on the terrorist head and lay him on his back and pour water on his face so he can't breathe correctly..it's an interrogation method

Because it's counterproductive in gaining reliable information.

trsjr, actually you are wrong. This is how the information to kill the scum bag bin laden was obtained.

You should read more often and you would have known

dross1958 you should read more. The info that led to OBL's death was not from waterboarding.

If you got your news from somewhere besides fox, you'd know that waterboarding did NOT get the intelligence. In fact, there are indications that it delayed getting useful info that led to OBL.

It simulates drowning. It's torture. If you don't think so, here is a link showing what it entails.

It's better than what they do to their captives. It's not done to every captive. They have a choice, talk or else.

The Obama Administration says that's how we found osama.

Their are individuals from the former administration and republicans who say that the information to find OBL was obtained by torture. That is not immediately clear at this point. It may prove to be a point of contention forever. We as a people must decide if torture is acceptable or not.
