George W Bush’s top political adviser has said he was ‘proud’ of controversial techniques such as waterboarding, which he claimed broke the will of terrorist.
Karl Rove – known as the former president’s ‘brain’ – said he did not believe that the interrogation method amounted to torture.
In an interview with the BBC, he claimed that waterboarding – which simulates drowning – had helped prevent terrorist attacks.
‘I’m proud that we used techniques that broke the will of these terrorists and gave us valuable information that allowed us to foil plots,’ he said.
‘I am proud that we kept the world safer than it was by the use of these techniques. They are appropriate, they are in conformity with our international requirements and with US law.’
