And I’m in no way ashamed or embarrassed to say that.
George W. Bush doesn’t regret waterboarding Khalid Sheikh Mohammed
Former President George W. Bush said Wednesday that he has no regrets about waterboarding Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, saying that, if presented with the same opportunity, he’d “do it again.”
Bush made the comments in reference to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the accused mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks who was waterboarded after his capture, during a speech to the Economics Club of Grand Rapids in Michigan. The remarks were first reported by the Grand Rapids Press.
“Yeah, we waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed,” Bush said. “I’d do it again to save lives.”
I have no doubt that he would. And that’s why I’m a big fan.
