In a defiant interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier, former vice president Dick Cheney said he had “no sympathy” for the Guantanamo detainees who underwent enhanced interrogation, noting that they helped kill 3,000 Americans.

“You had one detainee … who died in captivity, November 2002,” Baier said.

“3,000 Americans died on 9/11 because of what these guys did,” Cheney responded. “And I have no sympathy for them. I don’t know the specific details, I’m sure there were instances cited in the report. … I keep coming back again to the basic fundamental proposition: how nice do you want to be to the murderers of 3,000 Americans on 9/11?”
