You Couldn't Make This Stuff Up

The hallmark of Mark Thiessen's defense of torture is that he's oblivious to criticism.  Oh, and either deeply dishonest, deeply stupid, or both:
There’s a standard of torture in civil law,” he said, “which is severe mental pain and suffering. I also have a common-sense definition, which is, "If you’re willing to try it, it’s not torture." Thousands of American soldiers have been willing to undergo waterboarding as part of their resistance training, Mr. Thiessen notes; therefore, it stands to reason that it is not torture.
C'mon, Mark...resistance to what?  Could it be...torture? 

You just know that coming soon is the S&M defense.  I mean, who needs law when we have Mark Thiessen's common sense?
