In a speech to the American Enterprise Institute on May 21, 2009, former Vice President Dick Cheney said, regarding the use of enhanced interrogation techniques: ” ‘For all that we’ve lost in this conflict, the United States has never lost its moral bearings. And when the moral reckoning turns to the men known as high-value terrorists, I can assure you they were neither innocent nor victims. As for those who asked them questions and got answers: they did the right thing, they made our country safer, and a lot of Americans are alive today because of them.’ ”
