    so you think this man was taught to do so by the military?


    ...or do you think it is more likely he saw it on TV?

    I would only be speculating....but most likely the military. However...neither us can really say.

    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    waterboarding isn't taught in the military. he was in the military, not the CIA.

    And yet thousands of men and women served in the military where they saw the horrors of war, and yet didn't come home to abuse an innocent child.

    There is no justification, no excuse, for this man's actions. He is a sub human waste.

    Really now? I guess they forgot to tell that to all the recruits that get to experience it first hand.

    Another fun one is to be purposely gassed so you make sure your gas mask is put on properly.

    The very few who do so in the military did so in SERE lvl C, prior to all the contraversy. And yes, I have been to SERE training, if that's what you're asking. They do things there to benefit soldiers in training, they don't teach it-- and all the instructors are trained medical personnel, who wouldn't have to be taught in special technique (such knowledge follows any basic knowledge of human anatomy).

    Point being: this scumbag, obviously unstable, probably saw it on TV. Otherwise, he'd be one of the very few medical specialists who was an instructor at SERE, who all undergo psychological evaluations regularly--not likely.

    So you're saying gas mask training = waterboarding?

    No, I don't think so. not at all.
