In the Wall Street Journal, former CIA Director Michael Hayden put “individuals who hold that the enhanced interrogation techniques used against CIA detainees have never yielded useful intelligence” in the same category as “truthers” and “birthers.” The truth is, he wrote, that “information derived from enhanced interrogation techniques helped lead us to bin Laden.” What’s more, if the deniers “truly believe that these interrogations did not and could not yield useful intelligence, they should demand that the CIA identify all the information derived directly or indirectly from enhanced interrogation. And then they should insist the agency destroy it. They should also insist that significant portions of the 9/11 Commission Report be rescinded, as it too was based on this data.” Of course, never mind whether torture is legal.
