"A senior adviser to former US President George W Bush has defended tough interrogation techniques, saying their use helped prevent terrorist attacks. In a BBC interview, Karl Rove, who was known as "Bush's brain", said he "was proud we used techniques that broke the will of these terrorists".... Mr Rove said US soldiers were subjected to waterboarding as a regular part of their training." — BBC NewsI love the way torture enthusiasts leave off the reason why US soldiers are subject to waterboarding. They don't undergo it just for the heck of it; they undergo it to teach them how to resist the torture tactics of evil lawless scumbags. That's the boat they're putting the U.S. aboard. Their opinion of the intelligence of the average American is so dismayingly low they think that if they simply leave off the second half of the sentence, the whole thing will stand up ("heck, we do that to our own soldiers...") How wicked they are.
