WATERBOARDING VS WAKEBOARDING
So, after finally running out the last Attorney General who gave the Bush Administration carte blanche to torture "detainees" at will without reference to the Geneva Conventions, Congress is about to approve an appointee who can't for the life of him figure out if waterboarding is torture.
For Judge Michael B. Mukasey's reference: waterboarding is not anything like wakeboarding or snowboarding.
But, Judge Mukasey, you might consider wakeboarding as a preference to waterboarding as a means of interrogation. See, if you introduced "detainees" to wakeboarding or snowboarding, you'd scare the living daylights out of them on their first run and easily get the information you seek. But by the end of the day, they'd be a friend for life: "Dude! When can we do that again?"
