Did my best to find the original audio, but it is nowhere to be found. Hope you don't mind me recreating the dialogue from the transcript. (Goofy laughs added.)

Rick Santorum says John McCain 'doesn't understand' harsh interrogation techniques!

HH: Now your former colleague, John McCain, said look, there's no record, there's no evidence here that these methods actually led to the capture or the killing of bin Laden. Do you disagree with that? Or do you think he's got an argument?

RS: I don't, everything I've read shows that we would not have gotten this information as to who this man was if it had not been gotten information from people who were subject to enhanced interrogation. And so this idea that we didn't ask that question while Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was being waterboarded, he doesn't understand how enhanced interrogation works. I mean, you break somebody, and after they're broken, they become cooperative. And that's when we got this information. And one thing led to another, and led to another, and that's how we ended up with bin Laden. That seems to be clear from all the information I read. Maybe McCain has better information than I do, but from what I've seen, it seems pretty clear that but for these cooperative witnesses who were cooperative as a result of enhanced interrogations, we would not have gotten bin Laden.

2. Dear Mr. Santorum:
I have also read in some pretty intellectual sites that Santorum is Latin and means Arsehole! Secondly, what the hell do you know about military uniforms, military operations, or warfare? John McCain is correct in his statement and you are again parroting garbage from the sinking GOP Ship of Fools. All you're concerned with is getting Bush into the mix and getting some of the Obama limelight for KILLING OSAMA BIN FORGOTTEN by your party and Bush/Cheney in particular.
