"There's just no doubt in my mind — under any set of rules —
waterboarding is torture[.]"
"One of America's greatest strengths is the soft power of our value
system and how we treat prisoners of war, and we don't torture," [...] "And
I believe, unlike others in the administration, that waterboarding was, is — and
will always be — torture. That's a simple statement."
Which dirty hippie traitor said that? Tom Ridge, secretary of the Homeland Security Department between 2003 and 2005.
Also from the FauxNews story:
Ridge's comments come a week after a report that Director of National
Intelligence Mike McConnell said he would consider waterboarding torture if it
were used against him.
