Conservative loud-mouth admits torture

Conservative talk-show host, Erich "Mancow Muller has long defended the practice of waterboarding claiming that it is not torture. He finally subjected himself to the practice. See the results below:

Christopher Hitchens tried the same thing. I personally like Hitchens. When we met last year he was personable and I appreciate the inscribe copy of his book, God is Not Great. But Hitchens bought into the war and as such felt obliged to defend the Bush administration from charges of torture. Hitchens changed his mind after he endured it. After experiencing it himself Hitchens wrote, "if waterboarding does not constitute torture, then there is no such thing as torture."

Below is a video of Hitchens discussing the experience along with footage of him experiencing the waterboarding. The Bush leadership truly does deserve to be put on trial for war crimes.

David Beito, at Liberty & Power, wrote:
Apparently, this is the only way to convince pro-war conservatives, or their fellow travelers, that waterboarding is torture. Another strategy is to recommend that advocates of torture devote an hour this week to reading what Lord Acton said about power instead of watching the next episode of "24."
