Waterboarding was declared "torture back when we court-martialed American soldiers for waterboarding Philippine insurgents in the Philippine revolution."
The "water cure" in the Philippines is not significantly different from the waterboarding done in reaction to the Sept.11 attacks in 2001. The Senate report from 1903 makes it clear that military prosecutors regarded the "water cure" as a form of torture.
The CIA paid two psychologists $81 million "to develop and run their torture program."
The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report confirms the amount of money was spent on  a variety of things between 2005 and 2009, and other news organizations revealed the actual names of the two men, but additional information is needed.
