Olbermann on Waterboarding

Oh, hell. I can't embed it. Just go watch.

Oh, and while we're on the subject of waterboarding, watch this too. A reporter enlisted two professional interrogators to waterboard him and filmed the experience. There's a link there to the uncut video too. It's difficult but required viewing. Remember, if you're an American, this is being done in your name. How do you feel about that?

Which reminds me of what the Dear Leader said about Cuba a couple of weeks ago, with even more than his usual obliviousness to irony.

"... As with all totalitarian systems, [this] regime no doubt has other horrors still unknown to the rest of the world. Once revealed, they will shock the conscience of humanity. And they will shame the regime's defenders and all those democracies that have been silent."
(Thanks, Mike.)

Yikes.

Heather says the test to determine whether something is torture is to do it to the person who says it isn't and then ask again, but in the case of waterboarding, it's a lot simpler. If it weren't torture, we'd hear of college students going "beerboarding."
