Former US Vice President Dick Cheney acknowledged for the first time on Sunday that some of the men and boys detained as terrorism suspects after 9/11 were in fact innocent.

Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Cheney, a staunch proponent of the ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ used during US questioning of terror suspects but considered torture under domestic and international law, said that a “few” detainees were wrongfully held. However, Cheney expressed no remorse and little concern that these people were imprisoned for long periods and sometimes tortured — even to death.
