  •  My understanding (4.00)
    is that interrogators who know their shit view torture as a TERRIBLE method for extracting information, mostly because the subject becomes so desperate for relief that they may reach a point where they'll say just about anything.

    Therefore whatever information does come out has to be checked and double-checked since the torture has rendered the information unreliable.

    I don't have any links or specific resources to cite, I only know that this is what I've read in certain MSM coverage of the torture issue, dating back to the first revelations about Abu Ghraib last year.
