CIA Chief Leon Panetta: Information from “Enhanced interrogation techniques” led to Osama bin Laden

Doesn't president Obama, Democrats and the left owe former President Bush an apology?
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.

Panetta, who in a 2009 CIA confirmation hearing declared “waterboarding is torture and it’s wrong,” said Tuesday that debate about its use will continue.

Hey All,

Was the waterboarding done during Obama's Presidency, or Bush's?

The article doesn't state when the waterboarding took place.

At any rate, why is it so difficult for politicians to admit they are wrong?

Look at how many things they have been wrong about, and their continued ignorance of their mistakes is costing us our Country.

Waterboarding works, and it is NOT torture in my opinion. It doesn't violate the Geneva Convention and it should be used in extremely rare cases.
