I am sure by now we have all heard about how the Mastermind of the 9/11 attacks was waterboarded 183 times in March of 2003. Sucks to be him. Really, that March must have been a nightmare.... And 183 times is a along time - I mean, thats several times a day. Actually, according to my calculater it is pretty much 6 times a day.
I wonder if after the 100th time, he realized that they werent really going to kill him, so it just didnt bother him so much. Do you realize how clean his ears and hair must have been and how pruney his fingers were?
And now I hear that a bunch of people are really upset about it and want those that did it prosecuted. I mean, they are really REALLY mad.... So you know what? In all my Solomon Wisdom I have come to a conclusion.....
If those people that are so upset THINK THAT THEY ARE ABOVE THOSE THAT LOST FAMILY on 9/11, then they can have their way. I havent actually talked with anyone that has lost someone that day and havent heard any news reports. I do know that my dad and brother were scuba diving IN THE RED SEA, for the love, that day and it was a really REALLY worrisome several days until they could get off the boat and pretty much rushed/smuggled out of Egypt to the UK and then back home.
I have a feeling that those that lost someone on 9/11 just casually looked at the front page to see how many times this guy "thought" he was going to die drowning and then muttered something along the lines of "I wish my loved one could have ONLY THOUGHT they were dying" and tossed the paper on the recycle heap or better yet, into the fire.
And in regards to torture - if we keep wetting it down, eventually sitting in a cell will constitute that - hell, I think a cardboard paper cut counts as that....
Do not forget what this man did and what he must know as you look at what our Country did to keep you safe. If you do not like what it did, then may I assume you are volunteering your child or husband or wife to die first before mine in the next attack because honestly, deep down, I cheer these men and women who do this and know that the only way they can is to keep THE END GOAL in mind.
