Ben Carson Talks About Terror Suspects and Truth Serum

On Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson spoke on CNN about getting information from terror suspects.

Carson said, "I believe there are a number of ways to extract information, including some medical ways of putting people into a less-than conscious state, which allows information to be extracted." Carson explained that the average person might know this as "truth serum."

He referred to sodium amytal as a potential treatment. Carson went on to say, "There are ways where you decrease a person's conscious defenses, and they might be much more willing to give information. We've made some advances in that kind of science."
