Imagine you are convicted of a crime and given 20 years with no parole, but also the option to submit yourself to the same CIA waterboarding proceedure used on terrorists at club gitmo to reduce your sentence.

For each session of waterboarding ( not sure what or if there was a time limit to the boarding ) you recieve 4 months off your sentence.  You get to pick the number of sessions only you will do and have to pick the day you are convicted.  Maximum of selecting 59 sessions because they need a 4 month period to waterboard your ass if you pick 59 sessions.

Do you?  How many sessions?

Nah, I'd rather work out all day and be taken under the wing of one of the kind, older felons in exchange for handjobs. I would slowly rise through the prison hierarchy to one day become top crim and get to be the one getting handjobs.

it aint a big deal.  if you ever had an older sibling hold your head under water in the pool to fuck with you, then you have done it.  or you can go to sere school.

If it is so easy why every time a journalist tries it they only last a few seconds? Also anyone ever enjoyed it?

^This, also a journalist being water boarded to the edge of sanity(or pretending to be) gets more ratings then if they sat up after the boarding, shrugged their shoulders and said "Meh"

shocker the pussy journalist wouldn't last long... would kind of put a crimp on their anti waterboarding crusade...

It would be great to see a journalist get waterboarded and say... that was really unpleasant...but my head is still attached...

You've hit the other nail on the head: agenda. They have to show how "horrible" it is and share it with the world to increase the outrage. Then their name gets associated with its banning and they get a Pulitzer. Then on to the next agenda-driven "story" as opposed to reporting the facts.

From the way marine made it sound anyone could do it easy. From everyone I have seen it happen to they gave up in seconds. As for agenda IIRC Chris Hitchens (sic) was pro water boarding before he had it done to him and he gave up in seconds. It is on youtube if want to see it.

How about life in prison or have one of your nuts chopped off? Awake. Open the sack, lay out the nut, swing with hatchet. Home free.

Well if you know it's just going to be a waterboarding it defeats the purpose. The purpose is to try and make the guy think he's actually going to drown if he doesn't talk.

Thank you guys for clearing up what waterboarding is. I admit I was one of the sheep that would only hear how bad it was without really knowing exactly what they were doing. (Didn't stop me from supporting it though... nasty terrorists)

I'd do it until I was tired of it. Just stay away from me with the blowtorch and pliers.

For the people who would submit to waterboarding to get out of 4 months of prison but feel it is still torture,

Why are you not calling for the end of keeping people in prison since you feel 4 months in jail is worse than waterboarding?

because some people could put up with short pain/ discomfort if they knew in return they would get 4 months of their life back.

please don't try to construe this into some sort of argument about how waterboarding is not some sort of cruel/unusual punishment.
