If you said no, they would said something like "well what if you had a terrorist in custody and you knew that he could tell you the location of a bomb in a crowded building that would go off in 5 minutes. Would you think it's ok to torture to get the answer and save 500 people in that building?" If you said yes, it should be legal, well then they'd make you feel like an a-hole since you think waterboarding is cool and all that. Pretty great interview.
