Karl Rove is still a total scumbag:
“I’m proud that we used techniques that broke the will of these terrorists and gave us valuable information that allowed us to foil plots such as flying aeroplanes into Heathrow and into London, bringing down aircraft over the Pacific, flying an aeroplane into the tallest building in Los Angeles and other plots,” Mr Rove told the BBC.
“Yes, I’m proud that we kept the world safer than it was, by the use of these techniques. They’re appropriate, they’re in conformity with our international requirements and with US law.”
In case you (still) have any confusion over what Mr. Rove is proud of, you can watch Christopher Hitchens get voluntarily waterboarded:
And you know what’s almost worse than the waterboarding? The fact that they’re waterboarding this guy while the band Enigma is playing in the background. If that doesn’t meet the definition of torture, I don’t know what does.
