Apparently Violation of Law is Condoned by this Administration

i) Waterboarding is torture.

"(2) "severe mental pain or suffering" means the prolonged mental harm caused by or resulting from—

(C) the threat of imminent death; or"

ii) I'm not a lawyer but some important lawyers agree.

iii) It is a crime for any US citizen to commit torture on anyone anywhere.

"(a) Offense.— Whoever outside the United States commits or attempts to commit torture shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both, and if death results to any person from conduct prohibited by this subsection, shall be punished by death or imprisoned for any term of years or for life."

iv) It is a crime for any US citizen to conspire with anyone to commit torture.

"(c) Conspiracy.— A person who conspires to commit an offense under this section shall be subject to the same penalties (other than the penalty of death) as the penalties prescribed for the offense, the commission of which was the object of the conspiracy."

v) We now have supposed interviews with government officials said to be aware of three incidents of such torture.

"For all the debate over waterboarding, it has been used on only three al Qaeda figures, according to current and former U.S. intelligence officials."

Therefore I believe it quite apparent that a very serious crime, as defined by our own laws, has been committed by members of our government. I have no idea how high this goes but it is far worse that some burglary at a hotel named Watergate. I think heads need to roll and some serious jail time served.
