    Oh, 9/11 suspect or not. I don't think threatening children is right if this is true.
    Well this must be investigated. But in general I think the CIA has too much power and operates far too freely.

    Can you prove they did? You're making the contention. As opposed to what is happening now can you show any evidence this was a top down decision. There seems to be more and more information coming out showing this was a top down policy

    Any other questions? So again Gill I ask you if it was so effective like you say why the need to use it again and again if they were "singing like canaries" from the technique?
    Each waterboarding session lasted only 10 seconds. Do you actually believe they could tell everything they knew in that amount of time??

    Do you have a source for it only lasting 10 seconds? All the information I've read says it lasted longer. And the session usually is 3 attempts over the course of a day. Have you seen anyone get waterboarded? You're lucky if you can last 10 seconds. Christopher Hitchens has a video up of him getting waterboarded as well as Mancow Mueller. Also there was one of an independent news agency reporter who was waterboarded more intensely. Again if it was effective it wouldn't need to have been used so much

    So you have an idea here is playboy writer Mike Guy getting waterboarded.

    I saw Kieifer Sutherland do it. Seemed cool.

    I already posted it, but I guess this proves you don't even bother reading proof when I put it in a post.

    The report explains that each application of water is counted separately, and most of the 83 applications lasted less than ten seconds.

    Yes, if he could start backing up his posts half as well as I do, then that would be great.

    Thanks for the compliment.
