In case you missed former President George W. Bush's primetime NBC interview on Monday, NBC has posted all the segments. We've included them below.

But first, a bit of information that was not part of the interview. While NBC's Matt Lauer does discuss waterboarding in the segments below, Bush's new book Decision Points includes more details about the former president's take, including that taking part in such tactics helped keep the UK secure. From London's Telegraph:

In his book, Mr Bush writes: “Their interrogations helped break up plots to attack American diplomatic facilities abroad, Heathrow airport and Canary Wharf in London, and multiple targets in the United States.”

He writes that although the procedure was "tough", it was legal.

The British Government has long viewed waterboarding as torture. Last month, Sir John Sawers, the head of MI6, said in a speech that Britain had "nothing whatsoever" to do with torture.

Here's the interview, which includes Bush admitting his "mission accomplished" speech was a mistake, a story about a drunken dinner party, and his take on why Dick Cheney admitted he had a gay daughter:
