Chase J. Nielsen, one of the U.S. airmen who flew in the Doolittle raid following the attack on Pearl Harbor, was subjected to waterboarding by his Japanese captors. At their trial for war crimes following the war, he testified "Well, I was put on my back on the floor with my arms and legs stretched out, one guard holding each limb. The towel was wrapped around my face and put across my face and water poured on. They poured water on this towel until I was almost unconscious from strangulation, then they would let up until I'd get my breath, then they'd start over again... I felt more or less like I was drowning, just gasping between life and death." The United States hanged Japanese soldiers for waterboarding American prisoners of war.

flagged for excessively repetitive stupidity
The technique that the Imperial Interrogators used was to pour water into a prisoner, then jump on the prisoners belly. It's a little different than POURING water on a detainee.

Have you any documentation, Jim, that the United States hanged Japanese soldiers for waterboarding Chase J. Nielsen? Have you any documentation showing that Japanese soldiers were hanged by the US solely for waterboarding American prisoners of war, or might there have been a much more detailed list of abuse which led to those executions?

Weeks before the Oscars, Sony Pictures, the studio behind "Zero Dark Thirty," put out this statement: "We are outraged that any responsible member of the Academy would use their voting status in (the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences) as a platform to advance their own political agenda. The film should be judged free of partisanship. To punish an artist's right of expression is abhorrent. This community, more than any other, should know how reprehensible that is."

To what was Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal referring?

"Zero Dark Thirty," directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by Mark...
