Waterboarding Cheney

Pioneer Press in Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN, reports on Jesse Ventura's interview on Larry King Live.
Ventura said he was waterboarded as part of his Navy SEAL training. He was (typically) not shy about his views. "It's a good thing I'm not president," Ventura said. "I would prosecute every person involved in that torture. I would prosecute the people that did it. I would prosecute the people that ordered it. Because torture is against the law."

He went on: "I'll put it to you this way: you give me a waterboard, Dick Cheney and one hour, and I'll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders."

The Dick wouldn't last 60 seconds, much less 60 minutes.

[Related: Sean Hannity of FIXED News, about 3 weeks ago in the context of DEFENDING waterboarding, volunteered to be waterboarded "for a service-members charity". Keith Olbermann immediately offered to pay $1000 per second Hannity lasted, to said charity. Natch, Hannity hasn't said a PEEP about it since. >;-/]
