Not 183. Instead merely five


It turns out that the 183 alleged waterboarding sessions of KSM was at best just a misrepresentation, hyperbole and shameful spin; at worst: a flat out lie.

"A U.S. official with knowledge of the interrogation program told FOX News that the much-cited figure represents the number of times water was poured onto Mohammed's face -- not the number of times the CIA applied the simulated-drowning technique on the terror suspect. According to a 2007 Red Cross report, he was subjected a total of "five sessions of ill-treatment."

  1. Yes, but Rich.... 183 was such a nice, attention-getting number, as compared to 5!
