CIA admits Waterboarding

The Central intelligence Agency has now declared that it used the controversial method of "waterboarding" on suspected Terrorists. They also said that the method were used only on three people and not at all for the past six or five years.

The CIA director also admitted that the organization used those methods on high-profile al-Queda terrorists which includes Khalid sheikh Mohammed. Waterboarding is a method of torture where the person is immobilized on his back with head inclined downward and the water is poured over the face and breathing passages.

Previously some of the critics seriously condemned the CIA for using such methods. They also accused the CIA for violating human rights. Critics also debated the ban on waterboarding by CIA

The CIA Director Michael Hayden said that they also used this method on other two al-Queda detainees Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri.
