Jon Stewart nails it on the head again. Best quote is: “Apparently everyone’s not upset about the fact that we torture. They’re upset about the fact that we know about it.”
I do want to point out one little thing. When joking about how one prisoner was waterboarded 183 times in one month, Stewart thinks maybe it would lose its effectiveness — like the prisoner might get used to it and not be afraid of drowning. Waterboarding triggers a primal panic response. Here’s a video of a journalist who bet he could endure 15 seconds of waterboarding. Of course, he knew he would not actually be drowned, and he had a signal so he could stop it at any time. But it still totally freaked him out (and no, he did not last anywhere near 15 seconds).
