CIA documents fail to prove Cheney’s 'enhanced interrogation' claims

Hmmmmm…. “Give me a waterboard, Dick Cheney and one hour” – Jesse Ventura, 5/09.

Strikingly, [the documents] provide little evidence for Cheney’s claims that the “enhanced interrogation” program run by the CIA provided valuable information. In fact, throughout both documents, many passages actually suggest the opposite of Cheney’s contention: that non-abusive techniques actually helped elicit some of the most important information the documents cite in defending the value of the CIA’s interrogations.
Can we prosecute him for war crimes now?
