Man Who Waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Tells Story

Dr. James Mitchell joins Megyn Kelly on Fox News. He claims to be one of the men who interrogated terrorist suspect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed after he was captured.

In this second part of the interview, Mitchell explains what it was like to waterboard the al-Qaeda leader.

MITCHELL: Those techniques are so harsh that it’s emotionally distressing to the people who are administering them. Even though you don’t want to do it, you’re doing it in order to save lives in the country, and we would just have to man up for lack of a better term

JAMES MITCHELL: In fact, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed told me personally, ‘Your country will turn on you, the liberal media will turn on you, the people will grow tired of this, they will turn on you, and when they do, you are going to be abandoned.'
