not surprising, given that President Trump supports torturing those folks and Vice President Pence is friends with Secretary Cotton...

According to the Geneva Conventions, (you know, that agreement we have with a lot of other nations about the proper conduct on the battle field), waterboarding IS torture.

Matter of fact, Pol Pot used it quite effectively to garner false confessions from political dissidents.

Fantastic news. Also an indicator a true lid will be put upon the amount of mid-east refugees. Notice has been served!

Electrical wires, hack saws, flat and branding irons, vice-grips etc. are torture.

A faceful of water is annoying, and part of standard US military training.

You're right..............a face full of water is annoying, but waterboarding isn't quite that. Waterboarding is where you are held down, a rag is stretched across your face, covering your mouth and nose, while someone pours water over your face (which is already smothering because of the rag), for several seconds at a time to simulate drowning. It causes fear because of the feeling of drowning, and in some cases can cause cardiac arrest.

And no.....................being waterboarded IS NOT part of "standard US military training". I came into the Navy back in 1982, and retired in 2002, and not once did I ever hear of anyone being waterboarded in boot camp.

Although, they do waterboard Special Operations types as part of their final training for a VERY short time, and they only do it once or twice as a way to familiarize them with some of the conditions they can expect to endure if they are captured by the enemy. But it is only for those that qualify for things like SEALs, or other elite special operations forces, and only done once or twice for familiarization.

It amazes me how stupid some of you civilians can be about our military. No, Hollywood movies are not documentaries.

ISIS is not part of the Geneva Convention, they behead captives, there are no rules in the war on terror, none.

Still, as signatories of the Geneva Conventions, we have to abide by them.

So they are animals, you can act like animals....

Way to go... Torture isn't a truly effective way of interrogation, it yields bad info as the person only wants you to stop and doesn't care what the truth is...

Why CIA interrogations report matters: Torture doesn't work and Americans need to know

This is your beloved Fox News telling you....
