Fiorina wrong on Water-Boarding
I thought that Carly Fiorina was different than most of her Republican contenders for the presidential ticket. I am probably wrong in such expectations of the former CEO of the HP.
I am disappointed to learn that she approves of water-boarding - the interrogation method that has been rightly called torture. Even the 2014 Senate report called waterboarding – in which water is poured over a cloth on a prisoner’s face in order to simulate the feeling of drowning – tantamount to torture and said it produced little useful intelligence. Fiorina called the report “disingenuous” and “a shame” that “undermined the morale of a whole lot of people who dedicated their lives to keeping the country safe”.
Naureen Shah of Amnesty International told Yahoo of Fiorina’s comments: “This is completely rewriting the history of what happened.”
It should be noted that the use of waterboarding was banned in 2006. Obviously, Fiorina sees such tortures as acceptable tactics. She is wrong.
