Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Says Waterboarding is Illegal

In testimony today, the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency admitted what many of his Bush Administration colleagues will not: waterboarding is illegal. Check it out.

Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) asked, “General, do you believe that waterboarding is consistent with Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions?”

After pausing a moment to think, Maples replied, “No, sir, I don’t.”

“Do you think it’s humane?” Levin asked.

“No, sir, I think it would go beyond that bound.”
