From the BBC:
"In a BBC interview, Karl Rove, who was known as "Bush's brain", said he "was proud we used techniques that broke the will of these terrorists".
Of course, they have never produced a shred of evidence (other than lies- e.g. the Los Angeles Library Tower plot) that torture produced any meaningful results at all.
So I guess what Rove is proud of is having caused pain and anguish to people he didn't like. Not that this is a surprise. We let our country be ruled for eight years by monsters, and now the people that loved them every minute are allowed to fabricate every lie on earth about Obama, in an effort to make us forget what a vile job they did.
