We now know of more celebrities than terrorists who have been waterboarded -- TheDC’s Taylor Bigler reports that actor Denzel Washington has been waterboarded:Maybe this will become popular among celebrities, kind of like a colon cleanse. Waterboarding will be the new "it" spa treatment that celebrities will pay thousands of dollars to experience ("It Makes You Feel Barely Alive!!").
“There is no denying that Denzel Washington is a badass. But for his latest flick, ‘Safe House,’ he took his badassery to a whole new level. For his role as a rogue CIA agent, Washington was subjected to waterboarding, a torturous interrogation tactic used on enemy combatants.”
If you insist that waterboarding is torture, you must accept that we know of more American celebrities who have been voluntarily waterboarded than terrorists captured by America. And that’s not a joke!
Celebrities who have been waterboarded include the late writer Christopher Hitchens, actor Denzel Washington, radio show host Mancow and Playboy journalist Mike Guy. Al-Qaida terrorists who have been waterboarded by the U.S. include Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Abu Zabayeda and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri.
