Bob Barr Shouted Down At CPAC For Saying Waterboarding Is Torture

7 years ago by David

Oh what a lovely crowd, huh? Bob Barr is booed and yelled at loudly by the crowd until the moderator, Jay Sekulow, calms them down, for daring to point out that waterboarding is torture. This is from one of the CPAC 2010 panel segments, the topic of which was, "Does Security Trump Freedom?" The panelists included Barr, Jim Gilmore, Dan Lungren and Viet Dinh. Rep. Lungren got a nice little cheer out of them for saying he was for "enhanced interrogation" as well. There's your conservative base, folks: Torture lovers.
