    No its not a sport.

    Do you feel torture is acceptable?
    Why or why not?

    I had to look that one up. I don't think any torture is acceptable. Can you imagine feeling like you are drowning, over and over again? It's sad that our government thinks its acceptable

    I do not think that is acceptable. Torture in just about any case will make the victim say whatever he thinks will make the torture stop. So it is not even in any way an effective means of getting the truth from someone.
    An unconditional right to say what one pleases about public affairs is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment.

    ITA! I don't care what intelligence they manage to get by using this method (or others like it) - the ends do NOT justify the means.

    When I looked up waterboarding, I was horrified. I do think waterboarding is torture, and I DON'T think torture is acceptable under any circumstances.

    It is torture and I don't agree with the use of torture for any reason.
