[Hip waders now on]; Dan, this entire debate is exactly what I said it is; it is a political attempt to IMPUGN a previous administration for purely hyper partisan political purposes.
Now maybe in your fantasy world this is not a partisan issue, but in the REAL world where most of us do play, this stinks of partisanship.
Why can I say this you may ask; because the very Democrats making such hysterical claims were also BREIFED on these techniques before and after they were used.
Now you can pretend that this is merely an attempt to assert that water boarding is torture, which it is not based on the TRUE definition of what constitutes torture – the requirement of SEVERE physical or mental pain, but people with BRAINS can actually comprehend the desperate denial it would take to suggest that this is a NON-PARTISAN issue.
What makes such asinine assertions even MORE laughable is that they were made on a POLITICAL debate forum called "Debate Politics."
Carry on Dan; your desperate attempts to avoid REALITY are only exceeded by your farcical and hysterical notions about hyperpartisans.
