The prisoner confronted with the gun and power drill was identified by current and former U.S. government officials as Abd al Rahim al Nashiri, the alleged plotter of the attack on the U.S. destroyer Cole. Nashiri was also one of three prisoners who was subjected to the simulated drowning interrogation method known as waterboarding. The inspector general's report also describes at least one instance in which the CIA fired a gunshot in a room next door to a detainee in an apparent effort to convince the prisoner that another terrorism suspect had been executed, the official said.

So what's your opinion on the Japanese who waterboarded/tortured US troops during WW2? Would you also also say it was their right to extract information from the vermin in anyway they could? Or, will you be a hypocrite and say it wasn't ok, as the US were the "good guys" ?
And keep in mind that the US executed those Japanese who performed the waterboarding.
So, do the CIA get the same treatment after the 'war on terror' is over?
