I seem to recall that most of the valueable information was obtained by the FBI using candy bars and viagra before the CIA took over the interrogations and started torture. Most of the recent comments from specialists that I've heard say that torture provides unrelyable information because people will say anything to get it to stop. After all, think of it this way. Torture is usually used to force false confessions, and think of how many old men with four wives that would like some viagra to bring the spring back to their step.

Food for thought.

That didn't make any sense.

And, you just admited that people being tortured will say anything to make it stop.

So, you support that Torture does not work.

Let me give you an example:

'"We do not torture,"' - Former President George W. Bush - 11/07/05 - BBC News

'George Bush admits US waterboarded 9/11 mastermind' - Paul Owen - By UK Guardian - 06/03/10
'Former US president (George W. Bush) says Khalid Sheik Mohammed was waterboarded by US and he would do it again...'


What example of torture is this?

Tortured logic.
