Americans Favor Waterboarding as Danger Grows

According to a new Rasmussen poll:
Fifty-eight percent (58%) of U.S. voters say waterboarding and other aggressive interrogation techniques should be used to gain information from the terrorist who attempted to bomb an airliner on Christmas Day.
Men and younger voters favor the more aggressive techniques more than women and older voters.

Apparently politically correct, kid gloves Miranda treatment for terrorists is losing support as dangers of attack ramp up. To paraphrase Samuel Johnson, knowing you or your family may be blown up on an airline trip concentrates the mind wonderfully.
