Video: Panetta Admits Intelligence Gathered From Waterboarded Detainees Used To Track Down Osama bin Laden

Via Weasel Zippers:

WASHINGTON — Intelligence garnered from waterboarded detainees was used to track down al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and kill him, CIA Chief Leon Panetta told NBC News on Tuesday.

“Enhanced interrogation techniques” were used to extract information that led to the mission’s success, Panetta said during an interview with anchor Brian Williams. Those techniques included waterboarding, he acknowledged.

Agreeing with Panetta , Rumsfeld told Hannity, Tuesday evening that  “anyone who suggests that… waterboarding didn’t produce an enormous amount of valuable intelligence – just. isn’t. facing. the truth.”
