The U.N definition of torture was only to give a general definition of torure, which both the secular world and the Church believes is more than just a simplistic generic infliction of pain. It's the infliction of pain that contains the conditions for torture.

So what you need to do for your argument is to show that the use of waterboarding or similar practices in a ticking timebomb situation would meet the conditions for *an immoral form of pain infliction.*  But you need to do that using Catholic sources or natural law arguments.  So far, you have not succeeded in this endeavor.
