Ashcroft Defends Waterboarding Before House Panel
The controversial interrogation technique of waterboarding has served a "valuable" purpose and does not constitute torture, says former Attorney General John Ashcroft. Testifying on the Bush administration's interrogation rules before the House, Ashcroft said, the "value of the information received from the use of enhanced interrogation techniques — I don't know whether [Tenet] was saying waterboarding or not, but assume that he was for a moment — the value of that information exceeded the value of information that was received from all other sources."

"The reports that I have heard, and I have no reason to disbelieve them, indicate that they were very valuable," Ashcroft said. If the reports he has heard came from anyone in this administration, that's plenty reason to disbelieve them.
