Torture Boy Tom Tancredo
Here is what Tom believes: "Yes, I would certainly waterboard," he says. "I don't believe that that is, quote, torture."
He doesn't believe waterboarding is torture. I'd have a lot more respect for guys like Tancredo if they just came out and said they were in favor of torture. Maybe Mr. Tancredo should be required to undergo a course of waterboarding to get a real evidence-based personal opinion on whether waterboarding is torture or not.
In fact, I suggest that we get a panel of neoconservatives, Republicans, and theocrats, that believe various techniques are not torture and require them to undergo the "not torture" treatments. Then when they say a certain technique is not torture it will be more believable.
