Waterboarding Video on Vanity Fair Exposes Truths

Waterboarding is torture. That's the word from Christopher Hitchens. He is the writer who was asked if he would be a waterboarding victim for Vanity Fair.

His hands were bound and his face covered as he was led into the room. He was given a code word to say that would immediately stop the demonstration. He was also given to pieces of metal to drop the second that it all became bearable.

In less than a minute, these were flung to the ground.

I found the video hard to watch and cannot comprehend how one person could do this to another human being.

My article, with the link to the disturbing video, are here.
