Neither Efficacious Nor Medically Safe
Word has it the White House will soon release a 2004
CIA inspector general's report disproving claims, most recently by
Dick Cheney, of the effectiveness of waterboarding, and proving its
illegality. But footnotes
from the report have already been released showing that medical
personnel at waterboarding sessions protested there was no
evidence "it was either efficacious or medically safe."
