    After all the dancing around of 'we won't say if waterboarding is torture', the CIA director Michael Hayden admitted they have used waterboarding on 3 people.

    I particularly love the timing, on Super Tuesday, when no one will notice. Gotta admit, no one is paying attention to it.

    I still don't understand how waterboarding works. I know it's supposed to simulate drowning, but how do they do it?
    EDIT: Never mind, I read the article.

    So they poured water on 3 people's faces?

    Ah, I've heard about that. Although, its kind of hard to relate without experience.

    Without being officially announced I'm pretty sure its been common knowledge that it is a torture technique used by the CIA for a long time now. I remember John Stewart making fun of the CIA at some press conference for denying it months ago.

    Aye its hard to know how it is without experience, but you'd be stupid to think it wasn't harsh if they use it to interrogate someone. It has to be bad if people will spill secrets in order to save themselves from having to endure more.
