Aaron Schock: Pro-Torture


"I don't believe that we should limit waterboarding - or, quite frankly, any other alternative torture technique - if it means saving Americans' lives." My emphasis. [the exchange starts at 2:15 into the clip, and the actual quote happens at 2:41]

He may be a pretty face and a rising star in the GOP -- but Representative Aaron Schock (R-Il) just lost any respect that I had for him (which wasn't much because I knew so little about him).

My guess is that after this interview aired, Schock likely received several calls from from the top-brass in the GOP. He botched that 'enhanced interrogation technique' talking point numerous times.
