March 28 (UPI) -- Former Vice President Dick Cheney says if he had to make the same decisions and actions regarding the waterboarding of prisoners, he would.

Cheney was speaking to students at American University in Washington, D.C. when he said he had no regrets about the U.S. use of enhanced interrogation techniques such as waterboarding on terrorism suspects.

"If I would have to do it all over again, I would," Cheney said. "The results speak for themselves."

Many consider the use of waterboarding to be torture, with many people calling the former Vice President a war criminal for his endorsement of the technique, but Cheney disagrees.

"Some people called it torture. It wasn’t torture," Cheney told AU's television station ATV.
