CIA's Jose Rodriguez: Democrats Fully Briefed On Waterboarding
Geoff Earle at the New York Post offers a piece on former CIA officer Jose Rodriguez's response to the Senate's CIA report.
WASHINGTON — The former head of the CIA’s interrogation program says the agency gave its congressional overseers specific information about the tactics it used — including waterboarding — after Sept. 11.
“All of these people knew exactly what we were doing,” said Jose Rodriguez, who oversaw the program from 2002-2004 and gave the high-level briefings to Congress, to “Fox News Sunday.”
He said he personally briefed House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi on “all of the techniques … she never objected to the techniques at all.”
He said specifically that he told her about waterboarding and sleep-deprivation.
“She knew, back in September of 2002, every one of our enhanced interrogation techniques,” Rodriguez said.
