Watch Christopher Hitchens Get Waterboarded

Please remember while you watch this video that there are no safety words for the victims of torture.
Last February, Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Graydon Carter asked Iraq warmonger Christopher Hitchens if he would be willing to subject himself to the form of torture known as waterboarding.

Hitchens accepted.

"It doesn't simulate the feeling of drowning. You are being drowned."

Read John Dolan's essay on Hitchens, "Hitchens Gets Waterboarded, Withdraws from Iraq in 11 Seconds."
