Mancow Waterboarding Video, The Director’s Cut

by Chris Borgen

Following on my previous post, this is a much longer and more complete clip of the waterboarding of talk-radio host Mancow Muller. (Thanks to Roger, who found it on YouTube.) This clip includes an explanation of how waterboarding is done and includes Muller’s reactions. I thought the way he explained that it was much worse than he ever would have expected gives a sense as to how horrific it must be to have this done under more hostile conditions and having it done again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and…

  1. The pitiful thing is that this has to be done what with all the caselaw on the point and the history.  What a state we are in in America.  And waterboarding is only one of many techniques used over extended periods.
    I published an oped today in the Toledo Blade entitled “If Americans Insist, Our Leaders Will Prosecute” available at http://www.toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20090526/OPINION04/905260326

  2. Aren’t you kind of preaching to the choir at this point?

    I thought we settled this issue back when Christopher Hitchens tried it.

  3. Well, clearly Muller didn’t think waterboarding was torture, until he had it done to him. I doubt Dick Cheney thinks it is. For all I know, Mukasey is still trying to figure it out.  As, I think, are more people than we realize. 

    Among our readership, yes, I think it probably is a settled issue for most of them. But, I think this video isn’t just about settling the issue one way or the other, but also just the fact of seeing how a waterboarding is done. I do think it clarifies things, somewhat.

  4. Mancow wasn’t waterboarded (i.e. “simulated drowning”).  He was ACTUALLY DROWNING.  What a tool.  http://ace.mu.nu/archives/287917.php
