Why Not Make it Illegal?

P-Mac notes a McGurn essay on waterboarding.

“Over the past few years, the Democrats have moved to ban waterboarding only when it was clear that such a bill would not pass -- or would be vetoed by George W. Bush. . . . Today the Democrats have an even larger majority -- plus a president who would sign such legislation. So why the call for a truth commission instead? The answer is a nasty one: If Congress made waterboarding illegal now, they would be making clear that it was not illegal before."

That's only one of two good reasons.

The other is that the Democrats WANT waterboarding to be legal.

..........Oh, yes they do.......

Because if it is not, and another few thousand Americans die during Lightworker's watch...

I have to admit: It's an excellent point I had not considered. Congress could make it illegal in a matter of hours.

True. Then again, why take away a good decoy. They have a lot of success using the tool with the help of the media, so why willingly give it up?
