    Waterboarding

    Is waterboarding torture?

    We convicted a Japanese officer to 15 years in prison for doing it.
    I can see no way to describe it as anything elsel.

    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck...

    I would call it torture.

    According to a poll I read on CNN today, 2/3 or Americans believe that waterboarding is torture.

    Re: Waterboarding

    I'd like to know why only 2/3 think it is....What thought process do the other 1/3 use.
