Dick Cheney on CIA torture program: 'I'd do it again in a minute'

Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday continued to vigorously defend the CIA's use of harsh interrogation techniques.

"I have no problem as long as we achieve our objective, and our objective is to get the guys who did 9/11 and it is to avoid another attack against the United States," Cheney said on Meet the Press.

"I'd do it again in a minute," he added.

Contrary to Cheney's claims, the Senate's long-awaited report on the CIA's interrogation program determined torture did not produce any meaningful intelligence. Cheney criticized the report last week as being "full of crap." --Jon Terbush
