Olbermann Raises the Bar for Hannity’s Waterboarding

I don’t really agree with this since nobody should be subjected to waterboarding, but since Hannity has offered to do it, by all means… Now Keith Olbermann has called him out and is offering $1000 for every second that Hannity can last. Of course, this money will go to charity.

Glenn Beck Poll on Waterboarding

It looks like the vast majority (three to one) of those who took Glenn Beck’s poll asking, “Is waterboarding torture?” agree that it is torture. As of this moment, over 9,000 votes have been cast and 75% have voted “Yes.” It’s comforting to know that not all of his viewers are sadistic maniacs or cop killers.

BTW, the poll is still broken when I tried using FireFox.

O’Reilly Comments About Waterboarding Guest

Bill O’Reilly had Newsday columnist Ellis Henican on his show where they debated waterboarding and torture. Bill-O also said he’d waterboard someone 1000 times to save a life… The question is, would Bill-O allow himself to be waterboarded 1000 times to save someone else’s life…

HENICAN: You’re coming out for torture now?
O’REILLY: Torture, my [bleeped].
HENICAN: Torture? Torture?
O’REILLY: Bleep that word. All right, Ellis, calm down. We’ll waterboard Ellis in a moment.

Hannity Waterboarded For Charity?

Sean Hannity had actor Charles Grodin on his show and the debate took an unexpected turn… As you know Hannity is one of the talking heads at Fox News who believes that it’s all well and good to torture. Finally someone has taken him to task. Now, let’s see if Hannity holds true.

GRODIN: You’re for torture.
HANNITY: I am for enhanced interrogation.
GRODIN: You don’t believe it’s torture. Have you ever been waterboarded?
HANNITY: No, but Ollie North has.
GRODIN: Would you consent to be waterboarded? We can waterboard you?
HANNITY: Sure.
GRODIN: Are you busy on Sunday?
HANNITY: I’ll do it for charity. I’ll let you do it. I’ll do it for the troops’ families.

Really, I don’t think anyone should be waterboarded, but as Forest Gump said, “stupid is as stupid does.”

Fox News Makes False Waterboarding Claim

Fox News is insistent that 1) waterboarding either isn’t torture and 2) it has helped thwart a terrorist attack in L.A. They’re wrong on both counts. The fact of the matter regarding Khalid Shaikh Mohammed being waterboarded helped to stop an attack on the Library Tower in Los Angeles in 2002 is not possible considering he wasn’t captured until 2003. These are the same claims offered by former Bush speech writer Marc A. Thiessen.

But the claim conflicts with the chronology of events put forth on multiple occasions by the Bush administration, as Slate.com’s Timothy Noah has noted. Indeed, the Bush administration said that the Library Tower attack was thwarted in February 2002 — more than a year before Mohammed was captured in March 2003.

Fox News Defends Torture Use

Following the release of Bush-era memos by the Obama Administration, Charles Krauthammer, a Fox News contributor, admits that waterboarding is considered torture, but defends its use. Other Fox News personalities think that releasing the documents will “protect us,” “put our national security in jeopardy” and will “hurt our troops.”

Unfortunately, for Fox News, terrorist interrogators disagree with all of those assumptions. In fact, one interrogator claims that a high number of our soldiers injured, or killed, are as a result of the interrogation methods approved by the Bush Administration.
