On Waterboarding: 'No Regrets'

In his new book, former Vice President Dick Cheney said he has "no regrets" about waterboarding detainees to get answers in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

Cheney and others in the Bush administration have been criticized for supporting the use of the harsh interrogation technique that involves repeatedly pouring water over a detainee's face to create the sensation of drowning.

During an interview with NBC about the memoir, Cheney said, "I would strongly support using it again if circumstances arose where we had a high-value detainee and that was the only way we could get him to talk."
