I think you're all overlooking the point of interrogation, to get information you don't already know. Truth serum is only going to make the answers truthful, but how do you know which questions to ask. By all reports, waterboarding can have a man crying like a baby in under a minute and they'll tell you every detail of their lives to make it stop.
