One of the big developments yesterday was Robert Windrem’s report about Dick Cheney’s attempt to get Charlie Duelfer (the guy in charge of searching for WMD in post-invasion Iraq) to waterboard a senior Iraqi intelligence official to get him to admit to links between Iraq and al Qaida. Remember, at this point it’s about getting a retrospective rationale for the invasion. Rachel Maddow had Windrem and Duelfer on her show last night discussing what happened. Check it out here. Maddow has a really good run-down of the key events and then the key interview begins a bit after six minutes in.
