Psychologist, James Mitchell, admits he waterboarded al Qaeda suspects: report

James Mitchell, a former U.S. Air Force psychologist, confirmed some of the specific details in a Senate committee report released last week and defended the practices, saying that valuable intelligence was obtained despite investigators’ conclusion to the contrary.

“Yes, I waterboarded KSM,” Mitchell told the Internet-based global television news outlet VICE News, referring to Mohammed, whose interrogation was described in brutal detail in the report and which has been deemed torture by human rights groups.

“I was part of a larger team that waterboarded a small number of detainees,” Mitchell said in the interview posted Monday.

"I wasn't living hand to mouth, but it wasn't $81 million," Mitchell was quoted as saying. The Senate report said he and Jessen earned as much as $1,800 a day.

OK, this is an admitted war crime. Under US law, Justice is obligated to charge this man. They can then use him to out the rest of the torturers and get them all the rehabilitation they so desperately need.
