During a speech recently, former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney dismissed accusations that he is a war criminal and said if given the opportunity to waterboard again, he’d do it .”It was out of the enhanced interrogation techniques that some of the leads came that ultimately produced the results when President Obama was able to send in Seal Team 6 to kill bin Laden ” Cheny said. That statement from former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney has been repeated several times over the years defending the use of waterboarding in rare interrogations. Supporters of so called “enhanced interrogation techniques” say they produced results. Others, say the techniques amount to nothing more than torture. And now, one of the top U.S. Congressional committees is about to issue a highly anticipated report, weighing in on the issue. CCTV’s Jim Spellman reports.
