When is a dunk in the water not a dunk in the water?

The White House said Friday that Vice President Dick Cheney was not talking about a torture technique known as "water boarding" when he said dunking terrorism suspects in water during questioning was a "no-brainer." In an interview Tuesday with WDAY of Fargo, North Dakota, Cheney was asked if "a dunk in water is a no-brainer if it can save lives."

The administration has repeatedly refused to say which techniques they believe are permitted under the new law. Asked to define a dunk in water, [Press Secretary Tony] Snow said, "It's a dunk in the water."

Better than bobbing for chicken wings. That's gonna leave a mark.
