Keith Olberman on Waterboarding
On Daniel Levin, acting assistant attorney general in 2004, who underwent waterboarding to inform his analysis of different interrogation techniques. Keep in mind that Levin did not declare waterboarding illegal, but he was fired as he was working on a memo on the various torture techniques used by the Bush White House. Still, Olberman is slightly off base here, making Lvin out to be a hero. Levin was part of the machinery of torture that justified the unconscionable. He just wasn't oiled to the White House's satisfaction. Note, by the way, how every major news source reporting this story, like ABC, takes the White House at its word when it claims waterboarding produced confessions from three al-Qaeda suspects.
