I looked at these memos and these things are not torture. I went through worse during basic training in the Army.
I remember doing drills in pouring rain for about 15-20 minutes. We were running in place and doing push ups. We also went on a field exercise in a
storm and had to sleep on the side of the road in wet leaves and grass, It was so wet me and my battle buddy had to sleep back to back to avoid the
Putting someones head under water for 20-40 seconds is nothing. This only happened to 3 or 4 terrorist and it led to some helpful information that

Another important part of basic conditioning is drown-proofing. In this evolution, trainees must learn to swim with both their hands and their feet
bound. To pass drown-proofing, trainees enter a 9-foot-deep pool and complete the following steps with their hands and feet tied:
bob for 5 minutes
float for 5 minutes
swim 100 meters
bob for 2 minutes
do some forward and backward flips
swim to the bottom of the pool and retrieve an object with their teeth
return to the surface and bob five more times
Another evolution is surf torture, also called "cold water conditioning."
To call the things in this memo torture is a danger to our country. This is not torture in any way, shape or form.
If liberals don't want waterboarding, loud music, bugs in room or any discomfort for terrorist that have information about future plans that could
save lives, how will they get any information?
Say pretty please, can you give us some info? This is silly and dangerous.
