Jesse Ventura on Torture and Dick Cheney

Jesse Venture sat down with Larry King. I found the quotes in the Star-Tribune.

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura…called former Vice President Dick Cheney a coward for avoiding service during the Vietnam War…


Ventura railed against the military interrogation tactics under the Bush-Cheney administration, calling waterboarding torture.

“It’s drowning,” he said. “It gives you the complete sensation that you are drowning.” Ventura said he knows because he was subjected to waterboarding as part of his military training. “I’ll put it to you this way: You give me a waterboard, Dick Cheney and one hour, and I’ll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders.”

UPDATE: Found the video
