With Sean Hannity tonight former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld explained that his comments about waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay were misunderstood, and clearly says that waterboarding ‘overseas,’ and not at Gitmo, was critical in getting the intel that lead to the death of Osama bin Laden. See the video below, there’s much more than this short quote:
[RUMSFELD] I’m told there was some confusion today…suggesting that I indicated that no one who was waterboarded at Guantanamo gave any information on this. No one was waterboarded at Guantanamo by the U.S. Military, in fact, no one was waterboarded at Guantanamo period. Three people were waterboarded by the CIA away from Guantanamo and later brought to Guantanamo. As you point out, the information that came from those individuals was critically important.
