183

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (still in U.S. custody) was waterboarded 183 times in  March 2003 and Abu Zubaydah (the man who allegedly fears insects) was waterboarded 83 times in August 2002.

Apologists say torture works, they must mean the 183rd time it is used, exceptcoercive methods torture failed to generate significant and actionable intelligence. [1]

Oh erm…

No seriously apologists, any other gems to explain your crimes, maybe- She was asking for it? Children like sex with adults? C’mon, time to start borrowing the classics from your moral peers.

    That’s 183 and 83 times in one month! Serious dedication.

    No wonder they didn’t have time to go out and collect ‘caterpillars’

    ‘We also understand that a medical expert with SERE experience will be present throughout this phase and that the procedures will be stopped if deemed medically necessary to
    prevent severe mental or physical harm to Zubaydah.’

    So 84 times would have been too much but 83 waterboardings didn’t cause any severe mental or physical harm!!!! Can’t read any more, I am too angry.

    That bit is important as it further shows the torture was reversed engineered from the SERE school and that medics were part of the torture team (as in Nazi Germany for example). It’s good to be angry at this, it’s right.
