Prisoner Waterboarded 183 Times

Incredible that he "confessed", isn't it? And waterboarding was just one of over 100 different "harsh interrogation methods" used against just this single prisoner during the Bush Administration. And all of this is just what the CIA's admitting to now, after denying most or all of it. Makes you proud to be an American, doesn't it?

No worse than what the Texans went through; Muhammad is still alive, isn't he ?

After the February raid by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) of David Koresh's dissident religious community at Waco, Texas, the FBI and the U.S. Army took over, mounting a 51-day siege. This included such psy-war tactics as sleep deprivation of the inhabitants of the community by means of all-night broadcasts of recordings of the screams of rabbits being slaughtered.

Leaving aside your bizarre equation, I wonder how on earth our fearless authorities found themselves in possession of recordings of rabbits being slaughtered? What a bunch of psychos.

Doesn't have to be a real rabbit. You just have to tell someone it is. BTW, rabbits don't say much when their heads are lopped off.

I could touch the back of your neck and tell you it's a scorpion and you will freak. Effecive torture such as waterboarding is psychological. There is no physical damage, just a lot of mental terror. Ever been on a roller coaster? The primary objective of all this is to get info. People who administer controlled torture must have a screw loose to do the job. The chances on them going a little too far are probably 50/50. They have the means and the mindset, but do they have the self control? Abu Ghraib showed that some of them do not. They are playing into the insecurities of the prisoner. Some people get freaked by clowns. Would it be torture if I showed you clowns and you were scared of them?

If you caught OBL and a dozen of his runarounds. Let's say they all have been visiting SF and have AIDs and will die anyway in 1 year. What level of torture would you think would be appropriate to extract useful info? Let's say whatever level you choose would would dismantle the basic infrastructure of Al Q.

Are you so righteous that you would let innocent people die because you wouldn't use him for gain? He used you. He used me. What makes him special?

Yes. Revolting, and one must ask "why?" Who was making the hourly determination if it was time to drag the fuckwad out give him another dose? What was the criteria? Unfucking believable, and then to see people try to make light of it is just as fucking unreal.

America has a lot more than an economic collapse to recover from. Jim
