Bush to Veto Bill Banning Waterboarding

Dan Eggen, writing for The Washington Post, reports: "President Bush today will veto legislation meant to ban the CIA from using waterboarding and other harsh interrogation tactics and will argue that the agency needs to use tougher methods than the US military to wrest information from terrorism suspects, administration officials said."

The Water Cure

For The New Yorker, Paul Kramer explores the history of "the water cure," or waterboarding, in US foreign affairs and the American psyche during the early 20th century. He writes: "Many Americans were puzzled by the news, in 1902, that United States soldiers were torturing Filipinos with water. The United States, throughout its emergence as a world power, had spoken the language of liberation, rescue, and freedom."
