Green Beret and MMA fighter Tim Kennedy isnt messing around when it comes to enhanced interrogation methods.

The legendary sniper taught uninformed whiners a lesson today when he tweeted that waterboarding is not too tough for the terrorists. (RELATED: GREEN BERET HAS AN AWESOME MESSAGE FOR PEOPLE WHO COMPLAIN TOO MUCH)

“Waterboarding is not torture,” he said simply.

Waterboarding is not torture.

Immediately, Kennedy received dozens of replies. But he wasnt done yet.

“In exchange for cooking my best friend elk tacos he is going to Waterboard me for an hour while we live stream,” he said. “Put it on your calendars Friday 5 PM central time.”

Its no secret that Tim Kennedy has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to terrorists. So I wouldnt expect him to show much sympathy when it comes to interrogation tactics. But Kennedy makes a valid point here. Many people criticize waterboarding for being inhumane and ineffective but I bet very few of them have actually experienced it. And their opinion would probably change immediately if they ever had.

I know several people who have been waterboarded over the course of their military career. None of them say its enjoyable. But none of them believe its a legitimate form of torture, either.

This isnt to say that waterboarding isnt 100% effective. Nothing is. But the moment that this country starts treating terrorists and Gitmo prisoners like precious kids at pre-K is the moment we start to lose our legitmacy as the greatest, toughest nation on earth. Terrorists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who masterminded 9/11 and has the blood of thousands of Americans on his hands, doesnt deserve to see the outside of a jail cell for as long as he lives. A little water isnt going to kill him.
