Krauthammer Rips Congressional Dems For Politicizing CIA’s Enhanced Interrogation -- 'The risk was to lose 3000 more Americans' -- The Washington Free Beacon Staff f

Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer ripped C0ngressional Democrats for making hay out of the CIA’s enhanced interrogation program 12 years after the fact Monday on Fox News.

Krauthammer said Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D., Calif.) Senate Intel Committee report lacked proper context of the increased threat environment after 9/11 when many people expected an imminent second attack.

Moreover, Krauthammer cited a 2009 editorial from former Rep. Porter Goss (R., Fla.) who wrote that the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate Intelligence committees were fully briefed on the enhanced interrogation programs and no one expressed objection.

“This was an appropriate response of a country that was attacked out of the blue, had no idea what to do and had to immediately respond,” Krauthammer said.

“And even if it didn’t contribute to the War on Terror, which I’m sure it did, but even if you concede that somehow in the end it didn’t, there was no way to know at the time. If you were in charge you wanted to make sure that you erred on the side of gathering information. Because the risk was to lose 3,000 more Americans.”
