    George W Bush claims UK lives 'saved by waterboarding'

    British lives were saved by the use of information obtained from terrorist suspects by "waterboarding", according to former US President George W Bush.

    In his memoir, he said the simulated drowning technique had helped to break plots to attack Heathrow Airport and Canary Wharf in London.

    Goes to show, its effective to a degree. I'm personally okay with violating the rights of terrorists if it means protecting the right to life of innocent civilians.

    If I knew that water boarding might stop another terrorist attack like 9/11 I would say go for it in New York Minute...........

    If I thought pulling out finger nails would save lives I'd do it in a heart beat.

    "Might Save Lives"

    I'm not naive enough to think that its not possible lives has been saved through torture but...

    What about the innocents who get tortured in this manner?

    What about civilians who get their head chopped off on the net?

    That's not the issue at hand Navy.

    What about the innocent people who have been tortured by the United States?

    The people who beheaded people on the net will be dealt with. Believe me.

    Who?

    When, by whom, and in what manner? If I'm to "believe you," such details would be helpful.

    If it was even possible to assertian just how many people have been water boarded then we might have an answer.

    But are you naive enough to think that not a single innocent person has been tortured by your government?

    It, in fact, is possible -- three.

    I believe you're going to have to do better than that if you want to show wrongdoing.
