CIA director: We won't waterboard again -- even if ordered by a future president

“I will not agree to carry out some of these tactics and techniques I’ve heard bandied about because this institution needs to endure,” Brennan said…

The CIA used waterboarding and other techniques on terrorist suspects after the 9/11 attacks. But, in January 2009, President Barack Obama banned the practices in his first few days in office with an executive order.

When asked specifically about waterboarding Brennan could not have been clearer.

“Absolutely, I would not agree to having any CIA officer carrying out waterboarding again,” he said.
