Cheney: No Waterboarding, Just "Dunking"

Here is the face of a new American Century:

News for you Mr. Cheney: Fascism Not Welcome Here.

That said, I am sure that there is an island somewhere, where you can establish a petty fascist state over those who would wish submit to your will. But we humans deserve a choice.

Waterboarding or no. So, waterboarding is an unacceptable practice. Does this mean that those Americans found to have participated or enabled this practice will be prosecuted under applicable statutory codes?

Practices such as waterboarding demean and degrade all of humanity Mr. Cheney. These methods of torture are all illegal according to, both domestic and international, legally binding statutory codes.

Vice President Cheney said yesterday that he was not referring to an interrogation technique known as "waterboarding" when he told an interviewer this week that dunking terrorism suspects in water was a "no-brainer."

Cheney told reporters aboard Air Force Two last night that he did not talk about any specific interrogation technique during his interview Tuesday with a conservative radio host.

Wikipedia on Waterboarding:

"Waterboarding is a coercive interrogation technique characterized by some as a form of torture. The modern form of the practice simulates drowning and produces a severe gag reflex, making the subject believe his or her death is imminent while ideally not causing permanent physical damage.
The physical effects of poorly executed waterboarding can include extreme pain and damage to the lungs, brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation and sometimes broken bones because of the restraints applied to the struggling victim. The psychological effects can be long lasting. Prolonged waterboarding can also result in death.

Congratulations Dick! Do you feel pride? What is it that moves you? Why not change yourself for the better? Return from your hell, the world is waiting.
