Sarah Palin To NRA Crowd: Waterboarding Is How We Baptize Terrorists

The Hill reports:
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) defended the controversial enhanced interrogation technique of waterboarding this weekend, and implied that the practice would still be commonplace “if I were in charge.” “They obviously have information on plots to carry out Jihad,” she said at the National Rifle Association (NRA) annual meeting on Saturday evening, referring to prisoners. "Oh, but you can’t offend them, can’t make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen. Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”
Palin's 2008 running mate, Sen. John McCain, has repeatedly denounced waterboarding as torture. McCain was tortured during his five years in a Vietnamese prison camp.
