McCain Speaks Truth

With all the wingnuts obediently repeating the lie that Bush is somehow to be credited for catching Osama bin Laden, it's welcome, and a little unexpected, to hear John McCain speak up for truth. I'm sure it will be only a matter of moments before he flip flops as is his wont. So listen quick before he does... says McCain:

The trail to bin Laden did not begin with a disclosure from Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who was waterboarded 183 times. We did not first learn from Khalid Sheikh Mohammed the real name of bin Laden’s courier, or his alias, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti — the man who ultimately enabled us to find bin Laden... In fact, not only did the use of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed not provide us with key leads on bin Laden’s courier, Abu Ahmed; it actually produced false and misleading information... In short, it was not torture or cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment of detainees that got us the major leads that ultimately enabled our intelligence community to find Osama bin Laden.

Thank you. How mad is Hannity going to be about this?
