    when people are comfortable they slip up. They say things. They make comments, drop names, places, things that they would NEVER say if they were unconscious, in pain, starving, thirsty or terrified.

    What's more, things said under torture have no credibility. Things said when a prisoner is well-treated are more likely to be valid.

    Of course, you have to have some idea of what they might know, who they might know, some context to put things in when they say them.

    And that's the hardest part - we don't have those experts to question them.
