I am a 15-year-old working on my Eagle Scout Award. One of the requirements is that I write a letter to the editor of a newspaper and express my opinion on a subject of my choice. After reading all of the vents and letters in your newspaper on waterboarding, I chose that as my subject of choice. Now, I agree with all the posts that waterboarding is inhumane. However, it is significantly better than what our “friends” in the Middle East do to all of our brave men and women in arms. So, while it may not be humane, if the information we are getting saves lives then I am all for it!
