Former Vice President Dick Cheney has stated in an interview promoting his new book that he stands by his promotion of waterboarding and would order its use again in the future if the occasion arose.

Waterboarding involves pouring water over the mouth and nose of an immobile person to simulate the feeling of drowning. Waterboarding can case brain damage, death, dry drowning, lung damage, and psychological damage. President Bush’s administration argued that waterboarding is not a form of torture so the CIA could use the procedure during “enhanced interrogations.”

Former VP Cheney also admits in his book that he urged President Bush to bomb a nuclear plant in Syria.
