GREG GUTFELD: I'm all for surveillance, I'm all for -- hey, I'm pro-waterboarding. But that's not really a deterrent. It's just a technique used to extract information to stop an event. It doesn't prevent behavior. We need to think about catching the act before it happens. Which waterboarding would do once you catch somebody. And then you waterboard them. Do you see what I'm saying?

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE: KSM, yes. 

ERIC BOLLING: As long as you don't send them back.

GUTFELD: Yes.

BOLLING: You waterboard them before you send them back.

KIRSTEN POWERS: Is that our standard though? I mean really, is that our standard what those monsters do?

GUILFOYLE: No that's not what we're saying, but we are entitled to do what's legal and enhanced interrogation techniques are legal. It's not prohibited by the Constitution. It's more of a policy change. 

POWERS: This argument just falls flat for me always. They're monsters and so we'll just be a little better than they are. I mean that's not an argument. I think you need to make a proactive argument in favor of waterboarding. 

BOLLING: What we have said is that waterboarding produces results. We got Osama bin Laden's bodyguard to tell us basically information that led to Osama bin Laden through waterboarding. 

GUILFOYLE: Right but you guys do understand that ISIS and these guys are beheading and doing these acts to innocents. Ok, and we are, specifically, with information and facts to back it up, doing interrogations and seeking information to prevent future acts of terror. These are not innocents.
