    Just as "Listen, we have never been stay the course, George" was widely misinterpreted to mean that the President was disavowing all his previous, multiple "we must stay the course" admonitions over the past several years, Cheney is now being misinterpreted:

    Just because Cheney immediately associates Khalid Sheik Mohammed with "a dunk in the water", it is ridiculous to make the jump that the "dunk in the water" refers to waterboarding.

    Tony Snow explains the misunderstanding:
    So there you have it, folks - Cheney didn't mean what he appeared to mean because he would not "slip up".

    Color me convinced.

    [/sarcasm]There is a wonderful Nixon-era word for that: stonewalling.

    Kinda sounds like ole' KSM got baptized.:laugh:

    As far as the stonewaling, and while I don't hate Cheney as much as a lot of folks, he's the one who tried to float the "falling shot" theory, after he blasted his hunting buddy in the face. Could very well be he's trying to get around something.

    I wonder if he would tell you what he told Senator Leahy for writing that.

    Hope all is well with you, Bro. Curtis,

    Actually, the entire exchange sounds to me as though Q's point is "I will not accept any answer from you unless it is the one I want hear -- and what I want to hear is my own interpretation. And, if I keep this up long enough I'll hear what I want to print."

    If Cheney was not talking about Waterboarding, what was he referring to then?

    As a graduate of Navy SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) training during the late 60's, where as part of our training..... several of the class actually got to experience waterboarding..... first hand.... as the boardee, (gratefully I myself was not one) I find no sympathy for the Terrorist who finds himself on the down side of the spout.......

    You have no sympathy for the Terrorist, but what about the person caught up in the dragnet who is NOT the Terrorist?

    He'll most likely live, and suffer no long-term effects.
