James Mitchell, the man responsible for waterboarding 9/â11 suspect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, told FOX Businessâ Stuart Varney that enhanced interrogation should not be an option to get information from âterror suspects.â
âI donât think waterboarding should be on the table. Only three people were water boarded. Almost as many lawyers were water boarded as terrorists and the interrogators recommended that they stop water boarding people,â he said.
The âEnhanced Interrogationâ author finds the use of waterboarding unnecessary and said only an imminent threat justified the Central Intelligence Agencyâs use of enhanced interrogation.
âThe whole reason the CIA went to waterboarding people was that they had credible evidence that there was another wave of catastrophic attacks that were looming, if not imminent, and that there was the possibility that it was going to involve nuclear weapons,â Mitchel said.
Mitchell said years after that interrogation,â Khalid Sheikh Mohammed told him why terrorists emphasized the use of children as weapons to enforce their sharia extremist ideology.
âWhat he [Khalid Sheikh Mohammed] told me was that a parentâs love for their children is one of the weapons that Allah placed in the infidelâs mind to enforce so that those who want to impose true sharia could both punish and demoralized those who are resisting it,â he said.
Mitchell said the purpose behind the interrogations with the 9/11 suspect was to try and make sense of what was on the terrorists' minds when they were attacking the U.S.â
