I really don't like this. On one hand water-boarding is a body hack that tricks the lizard part of the brain into thinking it's drowning when it's actually not in any danger of that. I am fine with that when it's used against evil malevolent people to make them talkative about their evil buddies and plans. I am not fine with it being done to innocent people. I am not fine with actual bodily harm being performed on human beings. And I am REALLY not fine with Americans engaging in these actions who may move into other positions later on. I would GREATLY prefer to isolate such people from ever holding any political office or position, whether it's elected or not.
