Waterboarding

Is “simulated drowning” – drowning someone “not enough to kill them”? How is the art of this skill acquired? If the subject is “not dead” then what effects are expected? [] “…causing an almost immediate gag reflex and creating the sensation that the captive is drowning. Waterboarding can cause extreme pain, dry drowning, damage to lungs, brain damage from oxygen deprivation, other physical injuries including broken bones due to struggling against restraints, lasting psychological damage and, if uninterrupted, death. Adverse physical consequences can manifest themselves months after the event, while psychological effects can last for years.” []
