Rudy Giuliani said in Iowa Wednesday that he didn’t know if water-boarding was torture. â€œIt depends on the circumstances,” he said. â€œIt depends on who does it.”
That brought a sharp rebuke from John McCain, the lone voice of moral clarity in the GOP on torture. â€œIt is not a complicated procedure. It is torture,” he said.
McCain pointed to its use by the Spanish Inquisition, Cambodian leader Pol Pot, and reportedly by the Burmese government against Buddhist monks.
Giuliani and other GOP leaders would put America in this company?
