Have you ever experienced it? It’s not an afternoon at 6 Flags by any measure.


But it doesn't kill you, hurt you, or permanently damage you in any way. I would rather be waterboarded than ride on a six flags roller coaster. That's torture to me.


So no , you haven’t had the pleasure then. I have ( day 5, week 3 of SERE Level C )and while I respect your right to your opinion, i wholeheartedly disagree and my opinion is that psychological torture is indeed torture whether it be waterboarding, stress positions or blaring music excessive temperature fluctuation and sleep deprivation. None of them lead to actionable intel and will rather quickly drive someone to the brink of madness.

The only thing you’re obtaining from these acts is petty revenge and that wasn’t what I signed up for when I enlisted. You know, the oath where I swore to protect and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC. As the US Constitution has a little bit about cruel and unusual punishment, I feel that stone who engages in those activities has violated the oath I took.

It’s insanely hypocritical for us to pretend to be a bastion of justice and freedom when we violate their civil rights. There’s a reason that there aren’t black sites in US territory. To circumvent the Constitution. We are supposed to be better than those we fight against. Instead we fuel their hatred and do the work of the jihadist recruiters for them.

They are already making bets on how long Gina will last before trump fires her.
They can't stop the leaks and now it looks like Sarah S will be sacrificed.

Don't think of it as Waterboarding.
But more like Tactical Baptism

Terrorist never gave a lick of sympathy when:

:Beheading men,women and children.
:Shoot at men and women whom would not convert.
:place a human in a cage and doused them in gas... then light them on fire.

But this thread is NOT ABOUT interrogation techniques. It's about the first female CIA Director.
Gina Haspel has my support and no need to ask why.
