This one is just too good not to mention. Ann Coulter properly addresses the ridiculous claims that dumping water over someones head is somehow torture.
The media wail about “torture,” but are noticeably short on facts.
Liberals try to disguise the utter wussification of our interrogation techniques by constantly prattling on about “the banality of evil.”
Um, no. In this case, it’s actually the banality of the banal.
Start with the fact that the average Gitmo detainee has gained 20 pounds in captivity. There’s even a medical term for it now: “the Gitmo gut.” Some prisoners have been heard whispering, “If you think Allah is great, you should try these dinner rolls.”
In terms of “torture,” there was “the attention grasp,” which you have seen in every department store you have ever been where a mother was trying to get her misbehaving child’s attention. If “the attention grasp” doesn’t work, the interrogators issue a stern warning: “Don’t make me pull this car over.”
Farther up the parade of horribles was “walling,” which I will not describe except to say Elliot Spitzer paid extra for it.
And for the most hardened terrorists, CIA interrogators had “the caterpillar.” Evidently, the terrorists have gotten so fat on the food at Guantanamo, now they can’t even outrun a caterpillar.
