Rodriguez: Why is Killing Better Than Interrogating?

Former CIA interrogator Jose Rodriguez - in a 60 Minutes interview - raises an interesting question. Why is it ethical to kill terrorists using drones but morally abhorant to waterboard a suspect?

We don't capture anyone anymore Lesley...the default option of this administration has been to kill all prisoners. Take no prisoners... How could it be more ethical to kill people rather than capture them?"


We made some al Qaeda terrorists with American blood on their hands uncomfortable for a few days... I am very secure in what we did and am very confident that what we did saved American lives...
