Cheney Uses Terrorist Beheadings to Refute Chuck Todd’s Anti-Waterboarding Argument

Cheney Uses Terrorist Beheadings to Refute Chuck Todd’s Anti-Waterboarding Argument

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” former Vice President Dick Cheney rebutted show moderator Chuck Todd, who proposed what might happen if ISIS water boarded a captured American as a reason for the United States not to use that method for interrogation purposes.

“He’s not likely to be water boarded,” Cheney said. “He’s likely to have his head cut off. It’s not a close call.”

Partial transcript as follows:

TODD: So if an American citizen is waterboarded by ISIS, are we going to try to prosecute ISIS for war crimes? 

CHENEY: He’s not likely to be waterboarded. He’s likely to have his head cut off. It’s not a close call.” adding, “You’re trying to come up now with hypothetical situations. The waterboarding, the way we did it, was, in fact, not torture. Now, when you’re dealing with terrorists, the likes of al Qaeda or ISIS, I haven’t seen them waterboard anybody. What they do is cut their heads off. What they did to 3,000 Americans on 9/11, that was brutal, bloody murder. It absolutely can’t be compared with what we did with respect to our enhanced interrogation program.
