President Barack Obama said on Friday the CIA "tortured some folks" after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
President Barack Obama made a rare acknowledgment during a Friday press briefing concerning the United States’ past use of enhanced interrogation tactics in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. “In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, we did some things that were wrong. We did a whole lot of things that were right, but we tortured some folks. We did things that were contrary to our values,” Pres. Obama said near the end of a nearly hour-long press briefing at the White House in Washington, DC. See what else the commander-in-chief had to say about the CIA’s use of torture, as well as the admission that they spied on Congress.
