Waterboarding Works

CIA Director Leon Panetta went off script and confirmed the obvious: enhanced interrogation at places like Gitmo has contributed important leads in the war on terror -- including information leading to the location of Osama bin Laden.

From the Daily Caller:

"We had multiple series of sources that provided information with regards to this situation… clearly some of it came from detainees [and] they used these enhanced interrogation techniques against some of those detainees,” he [Panetta] told NBC anchor Brian Williams.

When asked by Williams if water-boarding was part of the “enhanced interrogation techniques,” Panetta simply said “that’s correct.”

Score one for common sense v. political correctness.
