Newscaster Matt Lauer asked former President George W. Bush in a Nov. 8 TV interview whether it would “be OK for a foreign country to waterboard an American citizen.” Mr. Bush replied: “All I ask is that people read the book (‘Decision Points’)” after having explained to Mr. Lauer repeatedly that waterboarding was legal.

I feel that from a humane point of view, Mr. Bush, as well as most Americans, would consider an enemy’s waterboarding of an American citizen less reprehensible than the preferred method of terrorist interrogation, which routinely results in beheading.
