Former vice president Dick Cheney said in a Fox News “Special Report” interview that the Senate “torture report” was a “terrible piece of work” that condemned the programs to “catch the bastards” behind 9/11. (VIDEO: Brit Hume: Senate ‘Torture Report’ As One-Sided As Rolling Stone Story)

“I think it’s a terrible piece of work, basically,” Cheney said. “It seems to me it’s deeply flawed; they didn’t bother to interview key people involved in the program. And I think that it’s sort of a classic example which you see too often in Washington, where a group of politicians get together and sort of throw the professionals under the bus. We have seen it before, I can remember, in Iran-Contra.”

“What happened here was we asked the Agency to go and take steps and put in place programs that are designed to catch the bastards that killed 3,000 of us on 9/11,” he continued. “And that’s exactly what they did, and they deserve a lot of credit, not the kind of condemnation they’re receiving from Senate Democrats.”
