Is Osama bin Laden's Death a Reason to Endorse Torture?

Of course not. Torture is wrong on so many levels, and often produces false, unreliable information.

In addition, according to former Bush Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, torture apparently played no role in the intelligence that led to Osama bin Laden's death. In an interview yesterday, Rumsfeld made clear that the information that led to bin Laden’s death was obtained through “normal interrogation approaches,” and not through “harsh treatment" or waterboarding.
