Brett Hume thinks he knows what torture is and it is clear from this that his opinion has been well instructed by Abugraiberto Gonzales. Note the conceit that torture has a definition, one that came straight from Gonzales' White House Counsel office:
Torture has an actual definition, and it means extreme physical pain, it also means the kind of thing associated with the failure of your organs. Now waterboarding is hair-raising and frightening, terrifying as it obviously is, would not appear to fit that category.
It would be an interesting excercise to see how these pudgy milquetoasts' views of torture would change if they were strapped down and had their finger nails pulled out. No organ failure, right, Brett? Can't be all that bad.

And does anyone have any idea why those who seem to like the idea of torturing people speak out of the sides of their mouths? What is up with that?

Hume has always been a lousy journalist and broadcaster. Fox hired a bunch of losers and created a niche market for right-wing nut jobs.
