Presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani has said that he supports waterboarding as means to get information from detainees. Torture as a method of gaining information is a very questionable device, which may end up alienating some of the few supporters he has. What he said:
I would tell the people who had to do the interrogation to use every method they can think of.Who is to say that the people being interrogated/tortured actually know the information you want? Given this was in reference to a hypothetical situation, how do we know that that is the only time it would be used? How can you trust this information when many will lie simply to stop the torture?
