Torture Doesn't Work

Whether or not torture works is not a factor in my opposition to it (nor, I believe in the United Methodist Church’s), but the fact remains that torture is not only morally repugnant, but completely ineffective. Jack Cloonan, a special agent for the FBI’s Osama bin Laden unit from 1996 to 2002, has the most succint explanation of why I have read in his contribution to The Washington Monthly’s “No Torture. No Exceptions.” series.
