Cheney on CIA Torture Report: The Ends Did Justify The Means

|

BRET BAIER, FOX NEWS: Sir, did the ends justify the means?

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY: Absolutely.

BRET BAIER: No doubt in your mind?

DICK CHENEY: No doubt in my mind, i'm totally comfortable with it. Bret, I think you've got to remember partly what was going on as well too during that period of time, we had reporting that al-Qaeda was trying to get their hands on nuclear weapons, that they had been dealing with Pakistanis who after all had nuclear weapons, we had the anthrax attacks, and we had every reason to expect to have a follow on attack. Our job was to keep the country safe and secure and get those guys who hit us on 9/11. That's exactly what we did, and the professionals int he intelligence community, especially at the CIA did one hell of a job.
