Dick Cheney says US will approve ‘CIA’s brutal interrogation programme’ again without hesitation

Washington( ANI): Former Vice President Dick Cheney has reportedly gone on record to say that despite the outrage courted by a recent Senate committee report on interrogation and detention programme employed by the Central Investigative Agency (CIA) after 9/11 attack, he would still authorize the programme again without any hesitation.

Cheney said that the tactics have worked for 13 years now and have helped to avert another mass-casualty event against the United States and he would approve it again “in a minute,” reported The Washington Times.

He maintained that the administration consulted with lawyers at the time to ensure “not to cross that line.” A scathing Senate report had accused the agency of using “brutal” methods like, waterboarding, and alleged that they were ineffective as they did not produce any useful intelligence.
