Left Doubling Down on Waterboarding

Maturity is simply non-existent in the left wing mind. The facts are coming out that the waterboarding of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed gave the CIA the name of Osama Bin Laden's courier; that courier led us to Bin Laden. According to Peter King (R-NY), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, that's exactly what happened. This is an extremely inconvenient truth for the left collectively, which demonized the CIA and the waterboarding of terrorists to get information. This reality is so inconvenient, in fact, that the left has decided to double down by denying it.

Via Slate, Diane Feinstein (D-CA) said the following in a press conference after having these facts presented to her:
"To the best of our knowledge," she said, "based on a look, none of it came as a result of harsh interrogation techniques."
How about White House counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan? When asked if waterboarding contributed in any way to finding Bin Laden, he flat out denied it. Here is the clip from Morning Joe:

Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) is also having a very difficult time admitting the truth. Via CNS News:

Here is left wing hack, Alan Colmes, telling Bill O'Reilly that former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said waterboarding did not lead to Bin Laden's location. The exchange starts very early in this clip. Pay particularly close attention at the 4:30 mark. Here, O'Reilly makes an extremely prescient point with Colmes, who continued to press O'Reilly on the words of Rumsfeld. O'Reilly pointed out that he didn't talk to Rumsfeld and neither did Colmes. What happened one hour later - Rumsfeld cleared everything up on Hannity's show - underscored O'Reilly's point perfectly. Mark this down. On May 3, 2011, Alan Colmes set a new low watermark for himself.

Rumsfeld gave Colmes the proverbial face slap here just one hour later. Via Breitbart:

Rumsfeld Confirms: Yes Water-boarded Terrorists Provided Info For Bin Laden Raid from Breitbart on Vimeo.

Rep. Peter King says very forthrightly that waterboarding KSM is what led us to Bin Laden.
