the story is here. i feel that if waterboarding was really torture, you wouldn't have leftists volunteering to have it done to them all the time:
but i guess logic and reason have never applied to liberal political thought.
and, of course, if conservatism is behind it, sen. john mccain is (at least somewhat) against it:
however, i think that if it came down waterboarding a known terrorist or having a large explosion in downtown los angeles, a president mccain would choose the former over the latter.
