Salon on Waterboarding

Reading about how the CIA has fine-tuned the art of waterboarding makes me sick to my stomach.  Can we, at long last, agree that this is an offense against human dignity?  Mark my words: the US will end up paying reparations to aggrieved parties for allowing this to happen.  I doubt Bush, Cheney, Yoo, or any of the others responsible will ever face an international trial for their crimes, but this is pretty clearly a conscious violation of international law.  They should be punished, but this is a stain on every U.S. citizen's conscience.

Here's Salon's report.  Read it if you dare.
