Bush Refuses to Ban Waterboarding

Kudos to President Bush for not backing down on the issue of permitting terrorists to enjoy watersports:

President Bush said Saturday he vetoed legislation that would ban the CIA from using harsh interrogation methods such as waterboarding to break suspected terrorists because it would end practices that have prevented attacks.

“The bill Congress sent me would take away one of the most valuable tools in the war on terror,” Bush said in his weekly radio address taped for broadcast Saturday. “So today I vetoed it,” Bush said. The bill provides guidelines for intelligence activities for the year and includes the interrogation requirement. It passed the House in December and the Senate last month.

“This is no time for Congress to abandon practices that have a proven track record of keeping America safe,” the president said.

Look, no one here enjoys waterboarding. It’s an immoral, sinful pastime. But the terrorists enjoy the practice, and President Bush is making a perfectly valid point: in a nation where the deviant activity known as “snowboarding” is 100% legal, how can he be expected to ban its cousin? Why should worthless snow-Hippies get to damn themselves to Hell, but the CIA not be permitted to use similar sporting pleasures as leverage to extract information from terrorists?

You can’t have it both ways, America. Either you can ban all sinful demon-loving sports, or keep your awful mountain hobby and let the CIA keep their interrogation “carrot.”

  1. Sigh… I would tell you what waterboarding is, but I don’t want to waste my time arguing with a parodist.

  2. You hear that ticking?

    Tick Tack Tick Tack…..

    That´s Georgie´s and the Republican´s time in office running out. Running out fast.

    Look, no one here enjoys waterboarding. It’s an immoral, sinful pastime. But the terrorists enjoy the practice, and

    No, they don´t. And if you try to dispute that, get yourself waterboarded first.

    Waterboarding and Snowboarding have less in common than Republicans and Democrats. By far. If you think waterboarding is a nice pasttime activity that can actually be enjoyed, try it yourself before blathering.

    Why should worthless snow-Hippies get to damn themselves to Hell, but the CIA not be permitted to use similar sporting pleasures as leverage to extract information from terrorists?

    1. Bcause it are 2 completely differrent things.
    2. Because I´m yet to see anyone getting waterboarded voluntarily and for fun.

    You can’t have it both ways, America.

    Given that both topics are about as far apart as both ends of the universe, well, yes america CAN!

    Either you can ban all sinful demon-loving sports, or keep your awful mountain hobby and let the CIA keep their interrogation “carrot.”

    Interrogation practises ain´t sport, moron.

    I think we should waterboard the entire B4B staff!

    That´s the whole point. IT IS NO SPORT! It´s fuckin torture and nothing else. And anyone saying otherwise is in very real and clear need of a frikkin therapist.

  6. It figures a German would want to waterboard something. Germans are into all kinds of kinky nonsense while dressed up in rubber in those night clubs of theirs. Maybe Sisyphus you should expand your statement to “But the terrorists and freaky, rubber clad Germans enjoy the practice”.

  7. Okay, I’m bored, so here it goes:

    Waterboarding is essentially a procedure which is designed to induce a sensation of drowning, which is fairly simple, taking into account that that’s what it is. To be brief, waterboarding involves the filing of the upper respiratory tract with water, which would drown you if it wasn’t removed before you die. It’s not a sport.

    Really Linus, you ever heard of erotic asphyxiation? Some people get off on being drowned. Ask PG about it, it’s all the rage over there in Germany I hear. The terrorist are a bunch of perverts so that’s why they are lining up at GITMO.

  9. From what I hear all the Liberals are into watersports. Being the brilliant Commander in Chief that he is, Bush is keeping them happy and off guard so he and President McCain can institute the draft and send all of them into Iraq without a big fuss. They will all be too busy smoking drugs and waterboarding each other to notice that they were sent unarmed! It’s quite brilliant really.

    Praise the Lord for John McCain and 4 more years of the same!

    Nope, I´m just suggesting to give you a taste of your own medicine. If you are too dense to see the *glaring* sarcasm, it´s not my problem.

    Germans are into all kinds of kinky nonsense while dressed up in rubber in those night clubs of theirs.

    I never was in any night club. But you for sure must know…

    Maybe Sisyphus you should expand your statement to “But the terrorists and freaky, rubber clad Germans enjoy the practice”.

    MAybe Sisyphus is at least no dishonest little fucktard that has to lay words into other people´s mouth´s like you…

    Jesus gave us PVC for handling toxic chemicals PG, not for looking like human condoms.

    You sure must know.

    And for the slow block-heads: Waterboarding is torture and sincerely doubt that there is any person on planet Earth that would like the experience.

    Really Linus, you ever heard of erotic asphyxiation? Some people get off on being drowned. Ask PG about it, it’s all the rage over there in Germany I hear.

    Never heard of it. But you for sure must know…

    You actually know almost suspiciously much about such topics…

    The terrorist are a bunch of perverts so that’s why they are lining up at GITMO.

    I doubt you´d find *any* gitmo inmate that is there voluntarily. Prove me wrong or concede that you were talking bullshit. Proof as in “hard evidence”.

    From what I hear all the Liberals are into watersports.

    From what I hear all Republicans are into gang rape.

    People hear a lot of stuff…

    Being the brilliant Commander in Chief that he is, Bush is keeping them happy and off guard so he and President McCain can institute the draft and send all of them into Iraq without a big fuss.

    Won´t work, especially as there won´t be a president McCain.

    They will all be too busy smoking drugs and waterboarding each other to notice that they were sent unarmed!

    Yeah, yeah. Fact is, they´d simply resist the draft together with the majority of the rest of the nation and impeach a few government members to get things sorted out.

    What was that one song? “Let´s impeach the president….”

    It’s for perverts, in other words. I’m not sure I like the CIA encouraging this sort of behavior, but if that’s what it takes to get the terrorists to confess, it’ll have to do.

    Yes, because everybody who nearly drowns in the rip tide or something is a pervert.

    “Really Linus, you ever heard of erotic asphyxiation?”
    That involves physical asphyziation. Never heard of water being used in such a fetish.

    “but the CIA not be permitted to use similar sporting pleasures as leverage to extract information from terrorists?”
    Think about that for a second (more than you did last time). If it’s such a fun activity for terrorists, why would they use it for interrogation?

  21. Yes Brother PG, come Novemeber when American elects John McCain by a landslide things will end. Praise the Lord for the end of Liberalism in America. His win is going to ensure at least 12 years of continuous Republican rule and that is going to be wonderful!

    There will be no turning back once this happens. The goal is to get America back like it was in the 1950’s when we were a wholesome nation and that is something to look forward to.

    Blessed be, Jesus come quick!

    Won´t happen, Lady.

    Praise the Lord for the end of Liberalism in America.

    Now THAT´S wishful thinking. Liberalism, especially american one, has survived faaaaaaaaaaaar worse things.

    There will be no turning back once this happens. The goal is to get America back like it was in the 1950’s when we were a wholesome nation and that is something to look forward to.

    Yeah, back to the 50´s. Seggregation, rascism, lynchings, political inquisitionism, covert colonialism and blatant ignoring of human rights abroad included. Wow, should THAT ever come true, I´d be really glad I´m not living in the USA and for my country having friends with nukes to back it up against you loonies.

    Maybe not by a landslide but there are a lot of weak, fearful, non-thinking Americans who will vote for McCain just like they did Bush in ’04. The only “news” they get is from a corporate media and they vote with emotion and not common sense. Unless the Democrats get their act together ASAP and work together, we will be saying thank you president McCain for at least 4 more years of war to the tune of 12 billion a month and the end of the Constitution as you know it.

  32. Waterboarding isn’t fun.

    “Waterboarding is a form of torture that consists of immobilizing a person on their back with the head inclined downward (the Trendelenburg position), and pouring water over the face and into the breathing passages. Through forced suffocation and inhalation of water, the subject experiences the process of drowning and is made to believe that death is imminent. In contrast to merely submerging the head face-forward, waterboarding almost immediately elicits the gag reflex. Although waterboarding does not always cause lasting physical damage, it carries the risks of extreme pain, damage to the lungs, brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation, injuries (including broken bones) due to struggling against restraints, and even death. The psychological effects on victims of waterboarding can last for years after the procedure.

    Waterboarding was used for interrogation at least as early as the Spanish Inquisition to obtain information, coerce confessions, punish, and intimidate. It is considered to be torture by a wide range of authorities, including legal experts, politicians, war veterans, intelligence officials, military judges, and human rights organizations.”
