    Bush to veto waterboarding bill
    By JENNIFER LOVEN,
    Associated Press Writer

    WASHINGTON - President Bush is poised to veto legislation that would bar the CIA from using waterboarding — a technique that simulates drowning — and other harsh interrogation methods on terror suspects.

    The president planned to talk about the veto in his Saturday radio address.

    Bush has said the bill would harm the government's ability to prevent future attacks. Supporters of the legislation argue that it preserves the United States' right to collect critical intelligence while boosting the country's moral standing abroad.

    Water boarding should not be baned. Why, its one of my favorite form of family water sports. You get a boat with a high horse power outboard motor, tie a rope to its stern, sit on a board, hold onto the ropes handle and yell go! Now thats what I call fun.

    Before anyone is allowed to state that he/she supports waterboarding he/she should have the technique used on him/her.
