White house says Bush may authorize waterbaording again!


news.bbc.co.uk

US President George Bush might consider authorising the controversial interrogation method of waterboarding in future, the White House has said.
Belief that an attack was imminent and legal advice would be major factors in the decision, his spokesman said.

On Tuesday the CIA admitted for the first time that it had used the method, which simulates drowning and has been condemned as torture by rights groups.

Key Democrats are demanding a criminal inquiry into whether its use was legal.

You know, if I get captured and the worse I have to face is waterboarding, I'll be thankful.

And yes, I've been waterboarded before.

If the good guys...whoever the good guys are...have an enemy prisoner and who without any doubt had info on an impending attack etc I feel they should be able to extract the info whatever it takes. I am sure that if the world realises that if the "no holds barred" philosophy is taken they might speak up sooner and save every one time.
Lets get Jack Bauer on the case. That'll sort 'em out
