Water boarding is dunking, just like at the carnival?

Still waiting on video of Sean Hannity being water boarded. Darn those busy schedules. He called water boarding “dunking,” which must mean it’s like the carnival event with softballs and a water tank. Such fun? Only, upside down, tied up and not in control of when you get out to breath.

Hannity is cunning. Language like “enhanced interrogation techniques” and now “dunking” attempt to redefine the action that our legal and military history defines as “torture.” Fox listeners start to believe it’s not torture because they don’t hear that word applied forthrightly.

Perverting the language to these means is propaganda.
