Soldier dad tortures four-year-old by waterboarding

The 1.5 mile walk in “feels like 15 degrees” weather this morning was a non-stop screaming fest as my four-year-old was cold, tired and basically behaving like a jerk. But even as I was to the point of tears myself (it is freaking cold) not once did I consider waterboarding the girl. But this guy did –

A soldier waterboarded his four-year-old daughter because she was unable to recite her alphabet.

Joshua Tabor admitted to police he had used the CIA torture technique because he was so angry.

As his daughter squirmed to get away, Tabor said he submerged her face three or four times until the water was lapping around her forehead and jawline.

Tabor, 27, who had won custody of his daughter only four weeks earlier, admitted choosing the punishment because the girl was terrified of water.

And this is the parent that got custody. What the hell was going on at her mother’s house?

  1. oh god, this story just horrified me! first and foremost, we clearly need more options for soldiers who have experience trauma!!! and, then, it reminds me of all of the stories we don’t hear…
    the poor little girl! i so hope she doesn’t grow up to do the same or worse to herself or her children…
