Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump reacted to a report that CIA Director John Brennan said his agency would not agree to using waterboarding as an interrogation tactic, even if order by a future president.
Trump compared that to what ISIS was willing to do and suggested we couldn’t beat ISIS without using our own strong tactics.
“They chop off heads and they drown people in cages with 50 in a cage in big steel heavy cages, drop them right into the water, drown people and we can’t waterboard and we can’t do anything and we’re playing on different fields and we have a huge problem with ISIS, which we can’t beat. And the reason we can’t beat them is we won’t use strong tactics, whether it is this or other things. So, I think his comments are ridiculous. Can you imagine these ISIS people sitting around eating and talking about this country won’t allow waterboarding and they just chopped off 50 heads?
