CLOWNS ON THE NEWS HOUR,
AND THE FAILURE OF THE HOST TO ADDRESS IT.
YOUNG SNOT NOSE RICH LOWRY,EDITOR NATIONAL REVIEW, CONSIDERS HIMSELF AN EXPERT ON TORTURE.
"I think waterboarding -- look, reasonable people can conclude it's torture, but I sort of apply a commonsense standard here. Journalists are volunteering to be waterboarded to see what it's like. You would not do that with any infamous, obvious torture techniques. Journalists wouldn't volunteer, "Please, pull out my fingernail. I'm really curious how that feels."
And they're only volunteering because it's two minutes of panic. It's a horrifying procedure, but then you walk away. And we use it in our own training for the Army and the Navy, the training of survival and resistance. If it's torture, that training itself is illegal and wrong and shouldn't be happening."
lISTEN CLOWN THE DIFFERENCE IS IF YOU VOLUNTEER YOU KNOW YOU ARE NOT GOING TO DROWN.
WHEN APPLIED TO SUSPECTS ,THEY ARE NOT VOLUNTEERING AND IT'S MORE THAN JUST A DUNK.
BUT THEN AGAIN WHO SAID HE IS A REASONABLE GUY?
GET A LIFE SO WE CAN HAVE SOME RATIONAL AND HONEST NEWS COVERAGE
