IF we found out who bombed Boston and knew there was a wider conspiracy, would waterboarding really be outside the boundaries of a moral nation?

Federal authorities say they have identified a suspect in the Boston bombing. As of this posting, there are conflicting accounts as to whether an arrest has been made.
As I was thinking about this arrest I wondered, “Would people be willing to have this individual waterboarded if it turned out that further bombings were immanent?”
It could be that this is a lone loon attack with no further connections, but IF there were evidence of wider action, would President Bush’s actions really look so awful through the bloody lens of what happened Monday?
