From Salon.com (emphasis mine):
According to [Physicians for Human Rights]’s investigation, the CIA conducted experiments monitoring sleep deprivation for up to 180 hours and experimented with waterboarding by adding saline to water to avoid killing detainees or rendering them comatose.
So, the CIA monitored the health of detainees subject to interrogation to ensure that they weren’t killed. Subject’s blood oxygen levels were monitored by doctors in order to ensure that the interrogation didn’t result in permanent physical harm or death. According to PHR, that’s… bad?
Apparently so. In fact, because the data was recorded, PHR (and every knee-jerk leftist covering the report) are calling it “medical experimentation” and went instantly Godwin.
I now have a greater understanding of the Democrat controlled Congress’ desire to do-away with the word “retarded”; it makes it too easy to categorize the lunacy that comes from the left side of the ideological aisle.
