At today's Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing, Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) debunks Cheney's torture claims:

"Nothing I have seen – including the two documents to which former Vice President Cheney has repeatedly referred – indicates that the torture techniques authorized by the last administration were necessary, or that they were the best way
to get information out of detainees. The former vice president is
misleading the American people when he says otherwise."
