"Khalid Sheikh Mohamed, who has confessed to planning the September
11, 2001, attacks as well as personally beheading Wall Street Journal
reporter Daniel Pearl, was subjected to waterboarding 183 times in
March 2003."

The timing of this particularly severe waterboarding was very
suggestive, because it was part of the leadup to the invasion of Iraq.
 Wouldn't it be interesting if it turned out they were waterboarding
this Al Qaeda guy to get him to say that there was an Iraqi
connection?

Is this what Cheney meant by the waterboarding yielding useful information?

If followed, this story is going to be increasingly instructive.
