A precedent for waterboarding...
Thought this was important. In the 1960's, a Russian defector, believed to be a spy, was subjected to some of the same torture techniques (I hope no one objects if I call them what they are) that current terrorist suspects are experiencing... The name Nosenko vaguely rings a bell, but most of this story was new to me. Thought it might be of interest.
