    U.S. soldier 'waterboarded his own daughter, 4, because she couldn't recite alphabet'

    By Mail Foreign Service

    A soldier waterboarded his four-year-old daughter because she was unable to recite her alphabet.

    Joshua Tabor admitted to police he had used the CIA torture technique because he was so angry.

    As his daughter 'squirmed' to get away, Tabor said he submerged her face three or four times until the water was lapping around her forehead and jawline.

    Tabor, 27, who had won custody of his daughter only four weeks earlier, admitted choosing the punishment because the girl was terrified of water.
    ...
    Tabor, a soldier at the Lewis-McChord base in Tacoma, Washington, was arrested after being seen walking around his neighbourhood wearing a Kevlar military helmet and threatening to break windows.

    Police discovered the alleged waterboarding when they went to his home in the Tacoma suburb of Yelm and spoke to his girlfriend.

    She told them about the alleged torture and the terrified girl was found hiding in a closet, with bruising on her back and scratch marks on her neck and throat.

    Asked how she got the bruises, the girl is said to have replied: 'Daddy did it.'

    During a police interview Tabor allegedly admitted grabbing his daughter, placing her on the kitchen counter and submerging her face into a bowl of water.

    Sergeant Rob Carlson said the punishment was carried out because the girl would not recite the alphabet.

    Well, now we see a documented answer to the question about the "rightness" of lowering the bar relating to torturing those who just "will not comply."

    It is not so long ago that I remember those who were in Korea talking about what a horrid thing it was to have endured the "Chinese Water Torture," and all agreed, here in the US, that that was brutalising the POWs.

    (Actually the torture was invented by the priests, during the Christian Inquisition."

    Jeze. I read the story.

    This guy didn't waterboard his daughter. He shoved her face in a bowl of water. It was the reporter who wrote the story who called in Waterboarding.

    I guess anything goes when you telling a lie. LOL

    Do you bother to read the articles before you post them? I suppose bobbing for apples would be considered waterboarding! :cuckoo:

    It's so sad to see folks use terms for which they clearly are clueless as to the meaning. Then, we get to see someone post the original stupidity without any question!

    Amazing. Such gullibility. Useful idiots.
