Why are we doing it? What good could possibly come from the U.S. government using torture as a method of "enhanced interrogation techniques" on terrorism suspects?
Check out this video to see waterboarding in action:
We tried a Japanese officer, Yukio Asano, in 1947 for using waterboarding on a U.S. citizen. He was sentenced to fifteen years of "hard labor" for waterboarding. Why aren't we sentencing Dick Cheney, Alberto Gonzales, etc. for war crimes then?
