The folks over at waterboarding.org have some photos from Tuol Sleng Prison, where Pol Pot used to have his thugs torture the enemies of the Khmer Rouge. Not surprisingly, waterboarding and stress positions were among the torturers' favorite techniques.
Also, waterboarding.org reminds us that Assistant Attorney General Daniel Levin voluntarily underwent waterboarding and concluded that it is torture under most conditions.
Because of his efforts to ensure that the US didn't employ torture, Levin was forced out of the Justice Department.
