Did you know that no one was executed or even prosecuted for it? The Japanese did not even use waterboarding. They used water torture. Not at all the same as waterboarding.
Water torture used by the Japanese is the forcing of massive amounts of water into the stomach usually followed by punches to the stomach, usually resulting in death.

Although a variety of specific techniques are used in waterboarding, the captive's face is usually covered with cloth or some other thin material, and the subject is immobilized on his/her back. Water is then poured onto the face over the breathing passages, causing an almost immediate gag reflex and creating the sensation that the captive is drowning.Waterboarding can cause extreme pain, dry drowning, damage to lungs, brain damage from oxygen deprivation, other physical injuries including broken bones due to struggling against restraints, lasting psychological damage and, if uninterrupted, death. Adverse physical consequences can manifest themselves months after the event, while psychological effects can last for years.
