If You Think Waterboarding Isn’t Torture, Watch Christopher Hitchens Get Waterboarded

This is undeniably torture

I’m seeing conservatives all over the blogs and social media sites today laughing about Donald Trump’s statement that he’d bring back waterboarding, and denying that it qualifies as “torture.” Yes, this horrible ugly debate is starting up again in the United States, where our right wing apparently never learns anything. Donald Trump is making the return of torture a part of his campaign.

So here’s the 2008 video of Christopher Hitchens voluntarily undergoing this torture, just to convince himself that it really is, without any doubt, a form of very serious torture. This is a powerful record that can’t be denied by any decent person. But sadly, I don’t expect to change the minds of any right wingers by posting this video.

It’s been a day. I haven’t been outside once.

Went thru stacks of paper —sorted it and put most of it in a box to shred.

I have this system. I stack everything that isn’t a bill or trash when it comes in. A couple of times a year (mostly before tax time) I go thru it and decide what to keep.

Most of it goes to the shred pile.

Really saves a lot of time and effort I used to spend filing.

Was it Hannity or Glenn Beck who volunteered to be waterboarded to show how “meh” it is, but never followed through?

And keep in mind that Hitchens (and service members who go through thus as training) went in knowing that the person waterboarding him wasn’t going to kill him. A prisoner has no such knowledge or comfort.

I rarely cross-post, but since I put this in downstairs just before that thread died off, I feel ok doing it. (and I’ve added a reference)

I have one simple question for RW supporters of waterboarding, who maintain it’s not a torture. If it’s not a torture, why did we convict several Japanese after WW2 for it. In at least one case, one was sentenced to 15 years hard labor. We also court-martialed and convicted an American soldier of torturing a prisoner during Vietnam by waterboarding.

Not only did he go in knowing that, but he also went in knowing he could signal for them to stop at any time. The prisoners at Gitmo and elsewhere don’t get that luxury, they’re stuck enduring that torture until either their torturers are satisfied they’ve been told everything or decides that they’ve pushed that prisoner as far as they dare for the session.

Reminds me of the Maltese Falcon.

Sam Spade: If you kill me, how are you going get the bird? And if I know you can’t afford to kill me, how are you going to scare me into giving it to you?
Kasper Gutman: Well, sir, there are other means of persuasion besides killing and threatening to kill.
Sam Spade: Yes, that’s… That’s true. But, there’re none of them any good unless the threat of death is behind them. You see what I mean? If you start something, I’ll make it a matter of your having to kill me or call it off.
Kasper Gutman: That’s an attitude, sir, that calls for the most delicate judgment on both sides. Because, as you know, sir, in the heat of action men are likely to forget where their best interests lie and let their emotions carry them away.
Sam Spade: Then the trick from my angle is to make my play strong enough to tie you up, but not make you mad enough to bump me off against your better judgment.
Kasper Gutman: By gad, sir, you are a character.

I may have to watch that again in the next day or so.

The common “answer” from wingnuts is to remark that what the Japanese did was torture, what we do is “enhanced interrogation.” That these guys are trained to stand up to torture, so we gotta use methods that are not “politically correct” to extract information vital to our national defense. And that we can’t be held back by “political correctness” or tell our enemies that we don’t do certain forms of interrogation, because that will show our “weakness.”

re: #250 Reality Based Steve

I’m too tired to actually read all 240+ posts, so I’m just going to post this here.

I have one simple question for RW supporters of waterboarding, who maintain it’s not a torture. If it’s not a torture, why did we convict several Japanese after WW2 for it. In at least one case, one one sentenced to 15 years hard labor. We also court-martialed and convicted of torturing a prisoner an American soldier during Vietnam.

RBS

Maybe just my opinion, but I have always felt that the various spins and rationales generated by apologists for the US’ use of waterboarding (“not technically ‘torture’”, “enhanced interrogation”, etc.) are just “respectable” facades for their true feelings: i.e., that the subjects of said “enhancements” are all mere “terrorists”, and thus subhuman scum not worthy of any legal or moral protection against anything. And the pro-torture “arguments” (at least those commonly found on the Internet since 9/11/01) virtually always contain the caveat that “THEY do worse”: or, occasionally, acknowledgement that abusive interrogation procedures are commonplace in the (usually Middle-Eastern) nations/societies “THEY” come from, so the occasional torture session is nothing out-of-the-ordinary.
IOW, the usual American rationale (not unique to us by any means, though) - We’re (always) the Good Guys, THEY are the Bad Guys, ergo, all the rules are different.
And good luck trying to alter that attitude….

It’s not going to happen. Trump will not do a third party run. He’s not going to have to because the cowardly GOP, knowing that Trump would run 3rd party and sink any chance at the presidency, is going to choose to support him and run with him as their standard bearer. They’d rather carry the shame of supporting this bigoted, know-nothing blowhard than stand up to him and face the chance of losing an election cycle.

Saudi court sentences poet to death for renouncing Islam

A Palestinian poet and leading member of Saudi Arabia’s nascent contemporary art scene has been sentenced to death for renouncing Islam.

A Saudi court on Tuesday ordered the execution of Ashraf Fayadh, who has curated art shows in Jeddah and at the Venice Biennale. The poet, who said he did not have legal representation, was given 30 days to appeal against the ruling.

Fayadh, 35, a key member of the British-Saudi art organisation Edge of Arabia, was originally sentenced to four years in prison and 800 lashes by the general court in Abha, a city in the south-west of the ultraconservative kingdom, in May 2014.

But after his appeal was dismissed he was retried last month and a new panel of judges ruled that his repentance did not prevent his execution.

“I was really shocked but it was expected, though I didn’t do anything that deserves death,” Fayadh told the Guardian. […]

Part of the problem is that quite a few states have sore loser laws, so if you lose a nominating primary, you are barred from the general election ballot. Maybe he can scrap together small parties with ballot access and buywin their nominations, or successfully pull off a write in campaign. But both of those require discipline and a good ground game, neither of which Trump has demonstrated as yet

BTW, I just got off the phone with my son about an hour ago. The end of the semester is fast approaching and he’s been busy completing work for his classes so he hadn’t hear about Trump’s Jersey City lie. He was more than a little flabbergasted.

He was working in the Journal Square area on 9/11, which is pretty much the heart of Jersey City and the area where many of the Arab & Indian/Pakistani people live (it’s also a main hub for buses & trains).

He recalled coming downstairs twice to see the towers: Once after the first one was hit and still smoking, and the second time just after both had collapsed- (the elevator operator having told him and his coworkers that the towers were gone). He said it wasn’t even registering—how could they be gone?—they couldn’t believe it when they got outside and there was nothing but smoke and a big gaping hole in the familiar skyline. He said it was quite frightening to see the military planes flying overhead, and it wasn’t until then that he was able to digest the reality & enormity of what had happened.

He also said that part of Jersey City was unnaturally silent & deserted when he got off work as by then all trains and other traffic to/from NYC had been shut down. So yeah, no Arabs/Muslims celebrating.

Once upon a time, I didn’t really care whether it was torture or not. I was just so pissed off at the hate and violence that I perceived directed at me from Middle Eastern terrorists. Somewhere along the way, I eventually recognized waterboarding, and all forms of torture, as the counter-productive response of desperate, ignorant, and sadistic people. I hope the majority of Americans have also, and I hope they vote.
