Best comment on the Hitchens waterboarding stunt (UPDATE for comparison)

You maybe saw where Christopher Hitchens submitted himself to waterboarding and got a videotape made and wrote an article about in Vanity Fair. He says, yep, it’s torture.

He seems to have recovered pretty well. Occasionally has trouble sleeping.

Gee, I sure do hope Khaled Sheikh Mohammed isn’t having any of those lingering after-effects. I’d be pretty sad to learn he wasn’t sleeping soundly.

I hope the people in the Library Tower in LA are sleeping OK, too.

Me, I’m gonna go with the Weasel on this one:

Weasel's torture caveat

I can see agreeing to waterboarding for an article like the one Hitchens was writing.

On the other hand, crippling electric shocks, probably not.

Nobody wants this to become commonplace. It’s not, and it won’t, and I don’t think the American public outside of law schools and Berkeley are losing even as much sleep over this as Hitchens is.


UPDATE: COMPARE AND CONTRAST: I remembered something from a while back on Hot Air. Here’s Fox’s Steve Harrigan getting a more intensive demonstration of waterboarding in November of 2006. He’s handling it a bit better than Hitchens did. “GHAACK! OH CRAP THAT WAS HORRIBLE! Okay, let’s try phase three.”

He seems fine now. No word on how he’s sleeping.
