Back in 2003 the U.S. Government issued memo's to the CIA that allowed the use of waterboarding to get terrorist leaders to give information. The CIA was concerned that the U.S. Government had given no support for this tactic and requested it in writing, even though in 2002 it had been written off. The details are here: http://www.journalgazette.net/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081015/NEWS03/810150343 and in other articles circulating. I am disappointed that the U.S. government kept this secret from the people for so many years. It seemed that the media had gotten the upper hand in convincing them that waterboarding is "inhumane" or other descriptions like that. Even though it was still going on in prisons. And now I would imagine that the rest of the Americans are, allow me to use this term, flipping out, over what they have just found out. What do you guys think about all of this?
