Rep. Peter King Says Intelligence that Led U.S. to Osama Bin Laden was Obtained Through “Waterboarding” of KSM – Video 5/2/11
Here is video of Rep. Peter King telling Bill O’Reilly tonight that the intelligence that led the United States to find the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden came through the waterboarding of Khalid Sheikh Muhammed (KSM). The nickname for a courier of Bin Laden’s was obtained from KSM through waterboarding, later confirmed by another detainee that was interrogated in 2007, according to King. It took U.S. Intelligence four years to identify who the courier actually was and follow him to the compound where Bin Laden was hiding.
If this information is accurate, then understand that the very information that enabled President Obama to order the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden would not have been obtained if the policies of Barack Obama had been in place. The policy of the George W. Bush administration of using enhanced interrogation played a vital role in the killing of Osama Bin Laden yesterday.
