Waterboarding: Because it Works

It's been reported that US interrogators waterboarded Khalid Sheik Muhammad 183 times. Apparently he coughed up useful information every time, making him a human ATM/encyclopedia of al-Qaeda activities and plans. Osama bin Laden must feel heightened anxiety every day due to Khalid's obvious willingness to tell his captors everything. In other words, waterboarding works. Imagine if US interrogators had gotten their hands on Khalid before 9/11.

Intel chief: Harsh techniques brought good info
Private memo says interrogation methods helped nation in terrorism fight

WASHINGTON - President Obama’s national intelligence director told colleagues in a private memo last week that the harsh interrogation techniques banned by the White House did produce significant information that helped the nation in its struggle with terrorists.

“High value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qa’ida organization that was attacking this country,” Adm. Dennis C. Blair, the intelligence director, wrote in a memo to his staff last Thursday.

Admiral Blair sent his memo on the same day the administration publicly released secret Bush administration legal memos authorizing the use of interrogation methods that the Obama White House has deemed to be illegal torture.

Among other things, the Bush administration memos revealed that two captured Qaeda operatives were subjected to a form of near-drowning known as waterboarding a total of 266 times.
