I graduated from
that training you're referring to - and NO - water boarding WAS NOT in the curriculum
, (nor would I suspect would
ANYONE [non-sadistic degenerate, that is - those guys work for the CIA or contractor's]
been willing to apply it)
I will grant that when I went there it was referred to as POW/Survival training and focused more on being the victim - not the 'interrogator'.
Since those who agree with you have successfully re-branded the technique from 'drowning' to the much more clinical-sounding 'water boarding'
people have had an easier time of thinking it's OK to make someone think they are about to die.'
And no, only idiots think they won't be 'revealing anything' and that they'll 'butch up' and 'be a man'. Those are the ones whey fill with
disinfo and HOPE they get caught.
More could be achieved with judicious use of lighting, ambient heat control and '___'/opium than any physical torture. Problem is they don't get the
instant satisfaction of brutalizing a helpless 'enemy combatant'. All I can say to anyone who adheres to your position is - I will be torn between
sympathy and malicious glee should you ever have the misfortune of experiencing this 'tool' used to protect our 'way of life.'
