‘Free Beacon’ Montage: Intelligence Experts Say Enhanced Interrogation Saved Lives
Intelligence Officials: Enhanced Interrogation Helped Save Lives, Capture Terrorists and Protect America (Washington Free Beacon)
With enhanced interrogation back in the headlines after the release of the Senate Democrats’ blistering report on the CIA, it’s worth noting many former intelligence officials’ comments, both now and in the past, about its benefits in protecting the homeland.
Former National Clandestine Service Director Jose Rodriguez, who famously told 60 Minutes that after 9/11 people in government needed to “put their big boy pants on,” said Wednesday that there was no question it was worth doing.
“We were able to protect the homeland, we were able to save lives, and that is the bottom line,” he said.
