Would it be torture if they did it to your son or daughter?
That's the question that needs to be asked every time someone wonders whether a certain technique, like waterboarding, is acceptable, and is in fact, torture.
Joe Scarborough thinks 90% of Americans would accept our use of waterboarding. I hope, no I'm sure, he's wrong. If we are that kind of country, I want to live somewhere else. What happened to the idea (wrongheaded though it is) of a Christian nation?
