Waterboarding is a technique that has been used on suspects by the Central Intelligence Agency to conduct interrogations in the Global War on Terror. In his lecture Kaj traces the fascinating history of this technique from its historical roots during the Spanish
inquisition. The variations, the historical context, the current legal paradigm all are addressed in this dynamic multimedia presentation culminating with a video of Kahimself.
