Still Think Waterboarding Isn't Torture?

Conservative radio talk show host Eric “Mancow” Muller was convinced that waterboarding wasn't torture. In order to demonstrate this, he had himself waterboarded during a live broadcast. Things didn’t go quite as he planned. Mancow almost immediately gave the emergency signal to be let free and surprised many listeners by concluding that waterboarding is “absolutely torture.”

I never thought I'd be offering praise to man named Mancow, but I give the radio show host credit. He had the guts to subject himself to this awful procedure, and then, even more impressively, he was willing to admit that he was wrong. Perhaps all advocates of waterboarding should follow in Mancow's footsteps (and yes, I'm talking to you, former AGs Alberto Gonzales and Michael Mukasey). If it's not torture, then why not give it a try?

Here is a link to the YouTube video showing the entire experiment.
