Thanks to torture heroes such as David Addington, Cheney, Bush2, Alberto Gonzales, John Yoo, Jay Bybee and Donald Rumsfeld, their media cheerleaders such as FOX and oh so many pro-terror mouthpieces, some Americans have returned home from the wars still considering torture is a legitimate disciplinary option.
So this soldier was reportedly drunk, tired of his little 4yr old girl having problems saying her ABCs, allegedly waterboards her in the kitchen sink.
Let’s see if Rush, Hannity, or O’Reilly picks this up and tries explaining just how valuable it was to justify torture and bless the administration who legalized its practice in pursuit of accused villains.
Police: Iraq vet abused daughter, held her head in water[quote]The child also told police that Tabor “put me in the water,” the report said, so she “would say my letters.”
“It was hot, the water was hot. I told him I would say my letters then!” the girl told police, according to the police report.
Under questioning, according to the police report, Tabor admitted to holding his daughter in the sink because she was afraid of water, and he wanted her to recite the ABCs.
But Tabor denied putting the child’s face underwater or turning on the faucet. He put her head in the sink “three to four times,” Tabor told police, according to the report.
“She said her letters after that,” the report quoted Tabor as saying.[/quote]
Man charged with mock ‘waterboarding’ 4-year-old for not reciting her ABC’s
As for FOX news being ‘fair and balanced’ - they downgraded their coverage of the story and carefully left out references to simulated drowning or waterboarding, which isn’t so surprising. FOX is still waterboarding’s top sales network.
