O'Neill on Interrogation: 'If You Can Walk Away From It, It's Not Torture'
Rob O'Neill, the Navy SEAL who killed Usama bin Laden, was on "Hannity" tonight to discuss the controversial CIA report on enhanced interrogation techniques.
Some have referred to the interrogation methods as torture, but O'Neill said that's not the case.
"If you can walk away from it as soon as it ends, it’s not torture. These are just techniques that can be used to find the truth, find them in a lie, and then exploit it," he said.
O'Neill said that the CIA was able to get information from Khalid Sheik Mohammed, which led to bin Laden.
"Khalid Sheik Mohammed gave us intelligence that led to the courier that led to bin Laden, and we had him for a long, long time, and it’s not because we got nicer, and we served him better tea. It’s because they were using techniques that weren’t torture but they were definitely uncomfortable [...] they got him out of his comfort zone, and then once he was pushed to a point, they were relieved and he started to talk. It’s simple interrogation tactics that work."
