(Washington, DC) -- Arizona Senator John McCain says the two-hour execution of an inmate in his state was nothing short of "torture." The Republican lawmaker told "Politico" he supports the death penalty, but called the way the execution of Joseph Wood was carried out unacceptable. Joseph Wood was injected with a combination of lethal drugs at the Arizona State Prison Complex on Wednesday. Witnesses and Wood's lawyers said he was gasping for breath and snorting before he died.
