As vice president, Dick Cheney was the most enthusiastic sponsor for the brutal C.I.A. interrogation program used on Al Qaeda suspects, protesting when President George W. Bush scaled it back in his second term. Now that a Senate Intelligence Committee report has declared that the C.I.A.'s methods, later prohibited, violated American values and produced little or no useful intelligence, Mr. Cheney is fiercely defending not just the agency's record, but his own as well.
"I would do it again in a minute," Mr. Cheney said in a spirited, emotional appearance Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." He denied that waterboarding and related interrogation tactics were torture.
