Santorum Thinks McCain Doesn't Understand Torture

Former PA Senator Rick Santorum is a frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex. Santorum is a Republican candidate for 2012 and like his fellow contenders, opens his mouth, inserts his foot before engaging his brain. He claims torture survivor John McCain does not understand how torture works.

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum doesn't think former POW and torture survivor John McCain quite understands how torture works.

Santorum was on Hugh Hewitt's radio show, and responded to a question about Sen. McCain's (R-AZ) repeated assertions that torture doesn't work and that there's no evidence that it led to the killing of Osama bin Laden.

"Now your former colleague, John McCain, said look, there's no record, there's no evidence here that these methods actually led to the capture or the killing of bin Laden," Hewitt said. "Do you disagree with that? Or do you think he's got an argument?"

Here's Santorum's response, via Justin Elliott of Salon:

I don't, everything I've read shows that we would not have gotten this information as to who this man was if it had not been gotten information from people who were subject to enhanced interrogation. And so this idea that we didn't ask that question while Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was being waterboarded, he doesn't understand how enhanced interrogation works. I mean, you break somebody, and after they're broken, they become cooperative. And that's when we got this information. And one thing led to another, and led to another, and that's how we ended up with bin Laden.

McCain, who was tortured when he was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, made a speech on the Senate floor last week decrying torture and other so-called "enhanced interrogation" methods.

"In my personal experience," McCain said, "the abuse of prisoners sometimes produces good intelligence, but often produces bad intelligence because under torture a person will say anything he thinks his captors want to hear - whether it is true or false - if he believes it will relieve his suffering."

Indeed, as Elliott points out, McCain wrote in his memoirs that he falsified information when he was interrogated as a POW.

Here is a man who never served in the military criticizing and disrespecting a former POW about enhanced interrogation. What a pathetic Baffoon!

Santorum - you are a nobody aimlessly trying to be a somebody. Your name fits you well because you are a fanatic nutcase!

My definition of torture is to google the name "Rick Santorum" and trying not to laugh!
