Gonzales: I Was 'Aware' Of Waterboarding

E-mail Print PDF

Fmr. Attorney General Alberto GonzalesFormer Attorney General Alberto Gonzales told TPM in an exclusive interview that he was aware of the so-called enhanced interrogation techniques used against suspected terrorists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

"What I can say is that, yes I was aware of the techniques, I did have knowledge, and I know that a number of lawyers worked to look to see whether it could be administered in a way that was consistent with the anti-torture statute and guidance was given by the Department of Justice while I was in the White House about how these techniques could be implemented to gather important information, in a dangerous period for our nation, to gather information from the enemy that would be in America's favor," Gonzales told me.

I asked if Gonzales remembered when Bush told the CIA that they could waterboard KSM.

"Yeah, I'm not going to comment on that, I'm going to save that for the book," Gonzales said.
