VIDEO: Meghan McCain and Sean Hannity Debate Torture

Fox News Sean Hannity invited Meghan McCain on his show to talk about court filing by 9/11 defendants detained at Guantanamo Bay. The group of detainees had admitted that they were terrorists to the bone.

"They declared war on us and were fighting a war and we know there is about 60-some odd detainees that have gone back to the battlefield. Why for the first time ever would we give rights to enemy combatants?" asked Hannity.

Meghan McCain seemed to agree.

"What competent person thinks this is a good idea? Literally when I think of my brother and his people and his platoon, the people i know over there fighting for this so we can let them go so they can attack us again? Its insane," she said.

Hannity then moved to the subject of torture. "Do you disagree with your dad at all about enhanced interrogations?" asked Hannity.

John McCain has been vocal about his opposition to torture.

"My attitude is that if we capture an enemy combatant in the battlefield — or we can use Osama bin Laden — who may have information about a pending attack. You know what, I dont have any problem taking his head sticking it underwater and scaring the living daylights out of him and making him think were drowning him and Im a Christian," declared Hannity.

McCain disagreed.

"I think its what separates us from the terrorists . My father could never lift me up as a child because he cant move his arm. He cant ride a bike because he cant bend his knee because he was tortured. I think he knows better, than you, no offense," she said.
