Lieberman says some waterboarding OK

Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman reluctantly acknowledged Thursday that he does not believe waterboarding is torture, but believes the interrogation technique should be available only under the most extreme circumstances.
Lieberman was one of 45 senators who voted Wednesday in opposition to a bill that would limit the CIA to the 19 interrogation techniques outlined in the Army field manual. That manual prohibits waterboarding, a method where detainees typically are strapped to a bench and have water poured into their mouth and nose making them feel as if they will drown.
A sure way to make money for the Nation - sell raffle tickets with the winner being the one to pour the water on Joey's face. I'm in for an arm's length of tickets.

Then again, he likes it!
