The waterboarding worked, and those plans did not transpire. The three men walked away with their lives, with all body parts intact. If the situation had been reversed, captured Americans would have had their heads chopped off, the severed heads then picked up by the hair and slung around by the thugs in celebration. I certainly would prefer the waterboarding, and one can gather that the three terrorist planners did as well since not one of them was willing to take one for the cause and go meet his waiting 72 virgins.
