ABC's Brian Ross on O'Reilly: CIA Interrogation Techniques Worked

Hot Air has the video. ABC's Brian Ross confirms to Bill O'Reilly that tough CIA interrogation techniques, particularly "waterboarding", worked with 14 captured senior Al Qaeda terrorists.

These CIA interrogations were directly reponsible for foiling a plot to bring down the largest building in Los Angeles.

This absolutely destroys the current Lefty/Democrat meme that harsh techniques produce bad intelligence. The toughest nut was Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, who held out for..."two and a half minutes", before breaking down and spilling the beans on all the fellow terrorists he could think of.

Bonus: AQ terrorist Ramzi Binalshibh cried like a little girl during his interrogation.

Go to Hot Air and listen to the whole thing.
