Sen. John McCain is evidence that torture is effective, a Fox Business guest. Thomas McInerney, a retired Air Force general who now speaks on Fox networks as a military expert, appeared on Varney & Co. on Thursday to discuss acting CIA Director Gina Haspel. In her confirmation hearing to become the agency's director, Haspel faced tough questions about her overseeing enhanced interrogation techniques while working at a secret CIA facility in Thailand in the early 2000s.
LT. McInerney was asked about Sen. McCain criticism of Haspel because she would not admit that torture is immoral. He responded by saying torture worked on John McCain and that is why is he is called "Song Bird John."
