    A rather disingenuous comic. It explicitly infers that water-boarding continues to this day.

    I am outraged. American water isn’t good enough? They have to add to our trade deficit by using imported water? I suppose the board is imported too. And the torturer looks imported. Kinda looks eastern European. I guess it’s all covered under Obamacare.

    Vichy water would have been even more deliciously appropriate.

    Disingenuous but kind of funny.

    Yep, this is funny…

    @Sirro, save the Vichy water for the vegetables!

    But it’s using imported bottled water!

    How much is Perrier paying Rall for that product placement? Time for Teddy to disclose his French bankrollers!

    egreshko: “It explicitly infers that water-boarding continues to this day.”

    No, it implies that waterboarding is going on to this day. The speaker implies, the listener infers.

    Also, “explicitly implies” is an oxymoron. If it’s explicit, it’s not implicit. If it’s implicit, it’s not explicit.

    Gitmo is America’s Bastille.

    It is so hated it weakens the power than handles it.

    Obama has continued Bush’s torture policy as president. Whether waterboarding is continuing at this time is unknown. Given what happened recently under Bush, coupled with Obama’s refusal to allow reporters and human rights advocates free access to Gitmo and other concentration camps in the US gulag system, it would be naive to assume that waterboarding is not continuing. Certainly, torture is.

    Besides, the new facility at Bagram will be bigger, more brutal and more remote than Gitmo. And that’s Obama’s project.

    It’s been “moved or deleted.” Surprised?
