On Thursday, former Vice President Dick Cheney ripped to pieces Democratic talking points on the CIA's enhanced interrogation program, saying that the program helped save American lives and it was effective.
In an interview with FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo, Cheney said, “There are a lot of Monday morning quarterbacks in the terrorism business.”
“You tell me that the only method we have is 'please, please, pretty please, tell us what you know?' Well, I don’t buy that,” Cheney continued.
“I think what we did helped produce intelligence to be able to get Bin Laden,” Cheney said, referring to using waterboarding to get information out of terrorists.
On Wednesday, Rob O'Neill, the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden, tweeted: "Waterboarding delivered special operators to bin Laden’s house so they could serve justice. Under the authority of a democrat president."
"If it were my call I would not discontinue those programs," Cheney concluded. "I'd have them active and ready to go."
