Christopher Hitchens Get Waterboarded

Article here, video here (not to spoil the suspense, but the clip’s not a long one).  His take on the tactic?

I apply the Abraham Lincoln test for moral casuistry: “If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.” Well, then, if waterboarding does not constitute torture, then there is no such thing as torture.
