Democrats Release Biased Report on 'Enhanced Interrogation Techniques'

Democrats Release Biased Report on 'Enhanced Interrogation Techniques'

Against the word of the interrogators who used “enhanced interrogation techniques” against terror suspects during the George W. Bush administration, Democrats in the Senate have released a report saying those techniques “did not produce significant intelligence breakthroughs.”

The report was not released to the public, but those who have read it say it makes the argument that the enhanced techniques — waterboarding among them — “did not help the CIA find Osama bin Laden and often were counterproductive.”

Jose Rodriquez, the agent who waterboarded Khalid Sheik Mohammed, begs to differ.

Earlier this year Rodriquez said, “I am very secure in what we did and am very confident that what we did saved American lives.” When a host of 60 Minutes said she’d heard that the information gleaned from waterboarded suspects was “false information that wasted U.S. resources,” Rodriquez replied, “Bullshit.”

Ironically, the Democrats who compiled the 6,000 page report on the alleged ineffectiveness of enhanced interrogation techniques did not bother talking to people who did the actual waterboarding.

Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) said this is one of the key weaknesses of the report, “which contains a number of significant errors and omissions about the history and utility of CIA’s detention program.” He said the Democrats formed the report “without interviewing any of the people involved.”
