Abstract This debate took place in 2008, as America debated whether to ban waterboarding and other "enhanced interrogation techniques" the CIA used against suspected members of Al Qaeda. In this debate as in the wider public debate, participants debate whether coercive interrogation works, whether it violates American values, and how to define torture.
