The most senior CIA officer on record yet has said he’s “comfortable with saying” that waterboarding and related interrogation methods were “torture.” He was commenting on the post-9/11 “enhanced interrogation” tactics used by the Bush Administration.

The remarks by former executive director of the CIA, Alvin ‘Buzzy’ Krongard (2001-2004), were made to BBC’s Panorama. The third most senior former official at the agency was asked if he thought waterboarding and related tools amounted to torture.

“Well, let’s put it this way, it is meant to make him (the suspect) as uncomfortable as possible. So I assume, without getting into semantics, that’s torture. I’m comfortable with saying that.”
