Draw What Moral Conclusions You Will

We caught Osama because Khalid Sheik Mohammed was waterboarded and gave up the nicknames of OBL's couriers.
In a secret CIA prison in Eastern Europe years ago, al-Qaida's No. 3 leader, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, gave authorities the nicknames of several of bin Laden's couriers, four former U.S. intelligence officials said. Those names were among thousands of leads the CIA was pursuing.
Update: Whoops. I completely missed the paragraph further on making the opposite claim.
Mohammed did not discuss al-Kuwaiti while being subjected to the simulated drowning technique known as waterboarding, former officials said. He acknowledged knowing him many months later under standard interrogation, they said, leaving it once again up for debate as to whether the harsh technique was a valuable tool or an unnecessarily violent tactic.
Hmm. Are all the Conservatives making my original point jumping to a false conclusion?

Actually, reading more carefully, these two assertions don't seem contradictory, but rather just steps on the road. First KSM gave up the nicknames of couriers, apparently under "enhanced interrogation" (though I am no longer clear). That led to other clues from Hassan Gul and al-Libi and months later they seem to have circled back to KSM under standard interrogation, when he finally acknowledged the courier by his real name.

Update 2: Peter King, Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee asserts baldly that KSM cracked under waterboarding.
