Waterboarding prevented terrorist attack

According to a report, confirmed in part by the previously classified documents released by Barack Obama, the waterboarding of 911 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammad, prevented a similar 911 "man-made-disaster" in Los Angeles.

I wish we knew the actual buidling(s) which had been planed for destruction. It would be interesting to know whether the people working in those buildings would now approve of the CIA decision to waterboard knowing that they are still alive today in all likelyhood only because the CIA used waterboarding.

UPDATE: The Obama administration--and President Obama himself--reversed themselves today leaving the door open to prosecuting those involved in waterboarding, including not only CIA officers who did it, but also the lawyers who thought it was legal.
