Jesse Ventura on Larry King Live: You Give Me a Water Board, Dick Cheney and One Hour

Jesse Ventura: I would prosecute every person who was involved in that torture. I would prosecute the people that did it, I would prosecute the people that ordered it, because torture is against the law.”

Larry King: You were a Navy S.E.A.L.

Jesse Ventura: Yes, and I was waterboarded [in training] so I know… It is torture…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.



(3:43)

A confession is not proof of guilt. Mr Ventura is right about following the Law in the case of torture here.
