Waterboarding saved lives

A recently declassified document confirms what the CIA said in 2005, i.e. it was the waterboarding of 9/11 mastermind Kahlid Sheik Mohammad that led to information that thwarted the planned attack on a high-rise building in Los Angeles.

If Barack Obama had been in charge, hundreds--if not thousands of innocent mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers--would have died needlessly. These people owe their lives to George W. Bush and the CIA. See CNSNews for the story.

Just to re-iterate my position on waterboarding. I do not believe waterboarding should be used on every terrorist and I do not believe it should be used as a "fishing" expedition. But I do believe it should be an option available when we know that a terrorist-murderer has information that will save lives.
