Donald Rumsfeld: Those Who Deny Waterboarding Helped Aren't "Facing The Truth"

Rumsfeld Confirms: Yes Water-boarded Terrorists Provided Info For Bin Laden Raid from Breitbart on Vimeo.

Donald Rumsfeld: "I think that anyone who suggests that enhanced techniques -- let's be blunt, waterboarding, did not produce an enormous amount of valuable intelligence, just isn't facing the truth. The facts are, a General Mike Hayden came in, he had no connection with waterboarding anybody. He looked at all the evidence and concluded that a major fraction of the intelligence in our country on al-Qaeda came from individuals, the three, only three people who were waterboarded."
