    We have known for a long time that torture does not -- and is not carried out for the purpose of -- force(ing) someone to tell the truth.

    The purpose of torture is to get someone to say or do what you want him to.

    This was true in the Inquisition.  It is true today.

    Full stop.

    The only people who don't seem to know this -- or at least will not say so -- are the paid talking heads on television and in the other corporate media outlets.

    The rest of us know better.
