    I would think that it would lose its effectiveness after a few times.... The person being waterboarded would realize they didn't intend to kill him. Its not lke electricution, thumbscrews or white hot pokers or other forms of torture tht causes extreme pain....Maybe i'm wrong. Or every new interogater wanted they're shot at these guys.

    Sept. 11 planner waterboarded 183 times: report

    used the waterboarding technique on Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the admitted planner of the September 11 attacks, 183 times and 83 times on another al Qaeda suspect, The New York Times said on Sunday.

    The Times said a 2005 Justice Department memorandum showed that Abu Zubaydah, the first prisoner questioned in the CIA's overseas detention program in August 2002, was waterboarded 83 times, although a former CIA officer had told news media he had been subjected to only 35 seconds underwater before talking.....

    I suspect after a few times it was more about retribution than trying to obtain intelligence...

    its a crude form of brainwashing..........different people have different breaking points.....they will do it until they get information they deem reliable........something about lying and inconsistency under constant pressure.........once the answers they want are consistent, they believe they are getting the truth.......beyond that its just breaking the person......he'll probably tie your shoe without being told to do so

    but then again, there's the simple joy of torturing the guy who came up with the plot for 9/11..........I'd say he got what he deserved

    I bet the relatives of those people who were roasted alive on 9/11 would loved to have been there and got in on a little of that "waterboarding"......

    I wonder how many times that taxi driver Dilawar also got waterboarded and suffered other forms of torture that led to his death... He must have "deserved it" too, huh torture advocate?

    We all knew some people who died on that day, does that make this level of torture justifiable??? Does it bring the dead back??? No quite sure why you would waterboard someone this many times..

    What math is that exactly? That your friends life is worth more than a cab driver's in another country? I disagree, sorry.

    Have you ever seen a terrorist waterboarded? It is pretty freaking cool, as they struggle for what they think is their last breath you can't help but laugh at them. Good times.

    Just gave you my opinion.

    I think they got what they deserved and what needed to be done.

    The problem is that when you legitimize torture and rely on tribal warlords and military personal to round up "suspects" you will torture innocents, and that makes us no different from them.
