Stephen King: Waterboard Jenna Bush, Have Her Decide If It's Torture
Posted On November 28, 2007
Somebody needs to award him a Nobel Peace Prize for this….
Horror writer Stephen King has a solution for how to prove once and for all whether waterboarding is torture: Have Jenna Bush try it.
The bestselling author offered his unorthodox investigative method in a Time magazine interview during a discussion about the media’s coverage of celebrity news.
“I said something to the ‘Nightline’ guy about waterboarding, and if the Bush administration didn’t think it was torture, they ought to do some personal investigation,” King recounted to Time. “Someone in the Bush family should actually be waterboarded so they could report on it to George.”
“I said, I didn’t think he would do it, but I suggested Jenna be waterboarded and then she could talk about whether or not she thought it was torture,” King continued.
