He Lasts Only 6 Seconds
Dick Cheney swears that waterboarding is not torture. International and American law says it is. After World War II, we executed Japanese soldiers who waterboarded American and British soldiers. We have heard right-wing wimp Shawn Hannity rant on and on about how waterboarding is not torture and that he would agree to be waterboarded for charity. We're still waiting.
Chicago radio host Erich "Mancow" Muller decided he'd get himself waterboarded to prove the technique wasn't torture.
It didn't turn out that way. "Mancow," in fact, lasted just six or seven seconds before crying foul. Apparently, the experience went pretty badly -- "Witnesses said Muller thrashed on the table, and even instantly threw the toy cow he was holding as his emergency tool to signify when he wanted the experiment to stop," according to NBC Chicago.
"The average person can take this for 14 seconds," Marine Sergeant Clay South told his audience before he was waterboarded on air. "He's going to wiggle, he's going to scream, he's going to wish he never did this."
