Waterboarding - CIA Director a wimp

In a televised Interview, CIA Director, John Brennan said that he would not obey an order from the President of the United States to waterboard anyone. There are multiple issues with this statement.

One issue is that this is highly hypothetical as the President is solely interested in releasing terrorists, not getting information from them. The Director will never face this decision. As far as can be determined, waterboarding may be distasteful or a moral question for the liberal minded, but it is not illegal.

If the security of the nation was at stake, what would be the recourse? If it is not illegal and the President gave the order, that would constitute a lawful order. As such, you must obey or resign.

Well, which would it be, Mr. Director? asks Colonel Allen B. West.
