John McCain: Torture didn\’t get Osama bin Laden – Jennifer Epstein – POLITICO.com

Torture didn’t lead the United States to Osama bin Laden, and the mission shouldn’t be used to justify the country’s use of it in the past, argues Sen. John McCain.

Writing on Thursday’s Washington Post op-ed page, the Arizona Republican — and himself a former prisoner of war — said “enhanced interrogation techniques” like waterboarding have no place in U.S. treatment of prisoners of war. He also dismisses the claims some Republicans in Congress and former Bush administration officials have been making about the tough handling of detainees leading directly to bin Laden.
