Q: I am a student writing a report about waterboarding. Who do I credit as the source of the information on your website?
A: Like Wikipedia, Waterboarding.org might be a good starting point to learn more but should not be considered an original or authoritative source of information. We are a resource to point students and other curious people toward original authoritative sources of information. Cite our source as the source of your information. For example if you're citing the official legal definition of the word "torture" the definitions page lists the source of those definitions.
