I’ve just heard about the practice of waterboarding used by the CIA as an an “interrogation technique”:
Water-boarding involves a prisoner being stretched on his back or hung upside down, having a cloth pushed into his mouth and/or plastic film placed over his face and having water poured onto his face. He gags almost immediately.
Apparently, another attempt to ban it just failed; already in March, President Bush vetoed the ban. This is disgusting! Goddamit, USA, you really need some change! What happened to the home country of the citizens’ movement?
