Sandy Rios Defends CIA Torture: 'It's Not Like We Beheaded Them'
Sandy Rios, the American Family Association’s Director of Governmental Affairs, delivered a response to the Senate Intelligence report on torture on her radio show today, calling it a distraction from Obamacare.
Admitting that she was giving “a careless response, not having thought through every jot and tittle of this,” Rios explained that she doesn’t mind the use of torture, even though the report, which she concedes that she didn’t read, found that its use actually produced large numbers of false confessions that undermined intelligence gathering.
“When I see the Islamists beheading, cruelly torturing and beheading Americans, I’m not too concerned about waterboarding them,” she said.
Mocking people who want to preserve America’s “high moral ground,” Rios defended waterboarding as a lesser evil: “It’s not like we beheaded them to see what it felt like.”
