    false confessions for public consumption or to justify a predetermined out come for political reasons the real reason and why the "enhanced interrogation" was used and still is, is to break the prisoner down.  Everyone knows someone will say anything to stop the torture. That's not the goal. The goal is to break them.   And though I abhor the physical damage done to someone tortured the mental damage is something that can be much worse.  Destroying a human being's mind can be a punishment greater than death.
