Cheney Says U.S. Should Restart Enhanced Interrogation Programs

Cheney Says U.S. Should Restart Enhanced Interrogation Programs Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Fox Business Thursday that he thinks the CIA should restart and improve on post 9/11-era enhanced interrogation programs.

“If it were my call, I would not discontinue those programs. I'd have them active and ready to go,” he said. “And I'd go back and study them and learn."

Cheney commented on the matter following a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Wednesday in which Trump’s nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, said she would not have the CIA return to such programs.

"Having served in that tumultuous time,” Haspel said of the post-9/11 techniques. “I can offer you my personal commitment, clearly and without reservation, that under my leadership on my watch CIA will not restart such a detention and interrogation program.”

IIRC, Hayden said it could be/should be restarted depending on circumstances.

How long until enhanced interrogations are used to find jaywalkers?

You were a skinny badass in Danang. That was war. The Islamic terrorist engage in mass murdering, unarmed, innocent, children, women, and men. This is not war, but mass murder and serial killing..
