Waterboarding Works and YOU might be proof

Let's just put an end to the chatter going on regarding whether enhanced interrogation methods like waterboarding work or not. But don't take my word for it.
From The Herald Sun Andrew Bolt.

George Tenet said that the “enhanced interrogation” program alone yielded more information than everything gotten from “the FBI, the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency put together.”

Michael Hayden, CIA director after waterboarding had been discontinued, writes (with former Attorney General Michael Mukasey) that “as late as 2006 ... fully half of the government’s knowledge about the structure and activities of al-Qaeda came from those interrogations.” Even Dennis Blair, Obama’s director of national intelligence, concurs that these interrogations yielded “high value information.” So much for the lazy, mindless assertion that torture never works.

Asserts Dennis Blair’s predecessor, Mike McConnell, "We have people walking around in this country that are alive today because this process happened.”

The experts agree... waterboarding works (like it or not) and you might be alive today because of it.
