Trump’s Desire to Torture Terrorists Again Won’t Gain Traction, Ex-CIA Chief Said

Current and former CIA officials took issue with Donald Trump’s suggestion that the U.S. should start torturing terrorists again for information.

In an interview with NBC News, former CIA Director Michael Hayden said the spy agency won’t employ torture after the fallout from the post-9/11 interrogation program.

Hayden, who served as CIA director at the end of George W. Bush’s administration, said the agency would not return torturing terrorists.

“Multiple investigations, grand juries, presidential condemnations, and congressional star chambers have a way of doing that to you,” Hayden told NBC News.

Trump said last week that “torture works,” and he would bring back waterboarding and “much stronger methods.”

CIA officials would be unlikely to use harsh techniques in the near future because of the fallout following the interrogation program.

‘I can’t imagine anyone volunteering to do it,” said Bill Harlow, a former CIA spokesman.
