Just in case there was any doubt, here’s the audio.
I can’t make out every word, but I could make out the gist:
Q: Waterboarding: do you think itâ€™s torture?
Romney: I donâ€™t. â€¦ We will have a policy of doing what we think is in our best interest. Weâ€™ll use enhanced interrogation techniques that go beyond whatâ€™s in the military handbook right now.
Of course waterboarding – repeated partial drowning – is torture. It’s war crime under inernational law; as John McCain once said, we hanged a couple of Japanese admirals for it. It’s also a felony under the laws of the United States.
