During his hour-long interview with Jeb Bush last night, Hannity paused his lightning round to challenge Bush when he said that torture is “no longer necessary.”
“Just quick yes or nos,” Hannity instructed at the beginning. “Gitmo remain open?”
“Yes,” Bush said.
“If we need it, enhanced interrogation?” Hannity asked. The question, itself, suggests that “enhanced interrogation” is sometimes needed.
Bush paused. “I don’t think that’s necessary.”
Instead of moving on to the next quick question, Hannity said, “You don’t. Why?”
“Because I don’t think we need it. I don’t think we need it. It’s not the law,” Bush answered.
“Maybe after 9/11?” Hannity asked hopefully.
“I think it was appropriate at the time given what we – you know, the uncertainty, we were under attack. I think I it was appropriate,” Bush replied. “It was also appropriate to change the policies once we had enough history.”
At that point, Hannity ended the segment.
And yes Ellen, I DO KNOW that closeness counts in only THREE THINGS in life:
2. HAND GRENADES
3. BOCCE BALL
