CIA interrogators waterboarded two top Al-Qaeda suspects held at Gitmo at least 266 times, according to the memos. Waterboarding, lest you forget, was the favored torture tool of Bush-era interrogators that simulates drowning.

At the same time he released the memos, Obama made it clear that interrogators using the methods would not be prosecuted for their actions.
