Lieberman: Waterboarding is OK by Me

Well, we know why Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) voted “nay” Wednesday. “[Waterboarding] is not like putting burning coals on people’s bodies. The person is in no real danger. The impact is psychological,” he says.

And while Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has responded at length to explain why “enhanced interrogation” is OK when done by the CIA (but not the Army), we still haven’t heard from one of the surprising “nay” votes: Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA). Our request for explanation has gone unanswered. But if you’ve seen him address this anywhere, please let us know.
