Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday that President Barack Obama should put waterboarding back on the table.
Intelligence derived from the Bush-era enhanced interrogation program "probably" contributed to the of death Osama bin Laden, Cheney told Fox News' Chris Wallace.
"Which raises the question, if we were to now capture another new high value target, which is certainly more likely given this apparent trove of information that they recovered in bin Laden's compound, should the president reinstate enhanced interrogation including waterboarding?" Wallace asked.
"Well, I certainly would advocate it," Cheney replied. "I'd be a strong supporter of it."
