Giuliani: “Bush got so much heat for waterboarding, and President Obama has killed scores of people.”

On Piers Morgan Tonight, Piers Morgan sat down with former New York city mayor Rudy Giuliani to discuss the Obama administration’s policy on drone attacks.  Asked by Morgan if there would have been more scrutiny if the same policy was in place during a Republican administration, Giuliani said, “For the life of me I can understand why George Bush got so much heat for waterboarding three people, and President Obama has killed scores of people.”

He went on to say “I probably agree with the decision President Obama made so I’m not saying he shouldn’t have made those decisions.  But I think those decisions would have been scrutinized heavily.”  He also said “From the point of view of a terrorist, would you rather be waterboarded or killed.  If your waterboarded, at least you’re alive.”
