Biden: Torture Does Not Work

Asked a hypothetical question regarding using torture to protect America in last night’s Democratic Presidential debate, Senator Biden vowed never to use torture, warning that it can lead to misinformation.

“It [torture] does not work. It is part of the reason why we got the faulty information on Iraq in the first place is because it was engaged in by one person who gave whatever answers they thought they were going to give in order to stop being tortured.”

Breaking ranks with other Democrats, Biden gave an explicit hard line approach towards torture:

“It should be no part of our policy ever – ever.”
