An excellent job by Stewart of holding up the "break all the rules/by any means necessary" mentality that led to torture and the destruction of the rule of law as well as our standing in the world—and showing what a crock of shit that is when the one compromise the U.S. wouldn't make is allowing a gay man to translate the torture sessions.

Money line: "Waterboarding may make the prisoner talk—but it ain't gonna make him talk English."
