Mark: Of course, waterboarding wasn't the only technique we borrowed from the Inquisition... just the only one TV news correspondents cared to try. And Tedd Roosevelt, perhaps mindful that both Washington and Lincoln forbade torture, ordered the courtmartial of a U.S. general accused of waterboarding. Later, after World War II, the U.S. prosecuted interrogators for waterboarding. There was no debate about it being a war crime. Why, then, do half of all Americans now believe torture can be justified in certain circumstances? How could any circumstances be more dire than World War II, when 60 million people perished? This is the legacy of eight years of fear and lawlessness! This is the damage a small band of amoral leaders has done in stripping a nation of its own traditions of decency! Oops... sorry. That was kind of a long introduction. You still there, Secretary Rice? Hello? Madam Secretary? Voice: Hey, Mark? Just FYI, it took two years to book her.
