Look, it is Orwellian to use the term "enhanced interrogations" over "torture" as it is Orwellian to use the term "enemy combatant" over "prisoner of war". The "no big deal" comes from their flippant regard for waterboarding as anything more than slightly uncomfortable. Check O'Reilly's reaction at 5:35 of this video
O'Reilly thinks it is horse-poop to say that waterboarding is torture.
Obviously, you must not think it's that bad if you are willing to have it done to people to prove that it's bad.
"Olbermann repeated the offer on Monday's show and said in an interview Tuesday that he's heard no response. He said he'll continue to pursue it. 'I don't think he has the courage to even respond to this _ let alone do it,' Olbermann said."

Ha ha ha! Me too!
Thats the problem with these left wingers - they all know what's best - just ask them - but when was the last time one of actually did anything more than talk?
Talk talk talk. I don't care if Oberman, Maher, Rosie or Obama - just alot of hot air and finger pointing.
They are the ones Nicholson was referring to in A Few Good Men. They can't handle the truth. The truth is waterboarding was done with Pelosi's knowledge, and it was done on Clinton's watch just like on W's.
These people want to act so appalled and so superior, when they feel it is the politically correct thing to do at the time.
Waterboarding was not a hot topic in 2002 - and it was not a secret, so get off that dead horse your flogging.
