Dick Cheney wants to bring back waterboarding because 'it worked'

Dick Cheney fox business

"If it were my call I would not discontinue those programs", Cheney told Fox Business, adding that they "worked".

The assessment of a Green Beret, however, failed to convince the former Guantanamo Bay detainee, who believes that the drowning experience, where one's mouth and nose are covered while large quantities of water are poured over their face, is nothing short of torture.

"He is the man who acquired waterboarded greater than anyone else", he mentioned.

Tristan was in Boston playing in game one of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. To this, Khloe replied, "Tristan and True are twins LOL it's insane ".

The program used techniques now widely considered torture.

Her role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is "disturbing", he says.

Speaking to Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo in an interview that aired Sunday, Cheney said the techniques, such as waterboarding, helped aid in the capture of Usama bin Laden in the aftermath of the September 11 terror attacks. "I would have them lively and able to go, and I would return and examine them and study".

Marchessault restored the two-goal lead 1:28 later. "Maybe we showed the hockey world we deserve to be here". The lesson is, continue to bet against the Knights at your own peril. "We were chasing the game all night".

"I believe that Central Intelligence Agency did extraordinary work to prevent another attack on this country given the legal tools that we were authorized to use", Haspel said.

Under a tough grilling last week, Haspel pledged she would not restart the waterboarding program, even if pressured by President Trump - who has supported bringing back waterboarding or something worse.

While most Senate Democrats, including Intelligence Committee veterans like Dianne Feinstein, have announced their opposition to Haspel's nomination, their pretensions to oppose torture and demand a higher moral standard in the CIA leadership are belied by their own records. It is known she played a key role in what is being termed "brutal interrogation" of suspects involved in Islamic terrorism. Haspel was assured of a favorable vote from the committee, which has an 8-7 Republican majority, when Republican Susan Collins of ME and Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia announced they would support her nomination.

Iran vows to restart nuclear program if deal collapses
Barkan said Trump's tough stance comes straight out of his book, "The Art of the Deal" and should surprise no one. Iranian leaders have said they will begin enriching uranium again, in a move toward building nuclear weapons.

Begg, however, recalled that the practice of waterboarding goes back to the Spanish Inquisition.
