Flashback: Obama & Biden Insist “Waterboarding Is Not Effective” (Video)
In October 2007 far left Senator Barack Obama spoke out against waterboarding and enhanced interrogation techniques…
“Torture is how you get bad information, not good intelligence.”
“The secret authorization of brutal interrogations is an outrageous betrayal of our core values, and a grave danger to our security. We must do whatever it takes to track down and capture or kill terrorists, but torture is not a part of the answer – it is a fundamental part of the problem with this administration’s approach. Torture is how you create enemies, not how you defeat them. Torture is how you get bad information, not good intelligence. Torture is how you set back America’s standing in the world, not how you strengthen it.”
Barack Obama wasn’t the only democrat who was wrong about waterboarding.
Schieffer: “Can you Mr. Vice President envision a time where waterboarding can ever be used on anyone?”
Biden: “No, no, it’s not effective”
Schieffer: “It’s not effective?”
Biden: “It’s not effective”
Today Rep. Peter King (R-NY) confirmed, “Through waterboarding we got vital information that directly led us to Bin Laden.”
Now we know that Obama and Biden were both wrong about this too.
