With all the news about the CIA waterboarding people, I have to ask what’s the big deal about waterboarding? To me it sounds like something you do at the beach or lake with all your friends. I know it’s where you pour water on someone’s face, but a lot of the time they’re in the desert so that has to be at least mildly refreshing. It’s very important to stay hydrated in the desert. Why is the CIA getting so much grief for this? I mean if they leave them in a room with no water that would be just as cruel. Instead they give them tons of water and they’re called monsters. They’re screwed no matter what they do! -- Emma from Celebration, Florida
Waterboarding is widely regarded by legal experts and government officials to be one of the worst types of torture possible. When you’re waterboarded it feels like you’re drowning without water actually filling your lungs. After 9/11 the CIA was given the authorization to do basically any torture and they chose waterboarding. That should give you an idea of how bad it is. They could have been hooking people’s balls up to car batteries, but they chose to waterboard because it’s so psychologically damaging. It may sound like a fun summer activity, but trust me, waterboarding is no game. Perhaps they should try tickle torture from now on.
