There is a man who is a real good interrigator from the middle-east (I can't remember his name), and he didn't use torture to get info, he merely talked to the prisoners and they told him a great deal info.
But he was pulled from that job, and then the many types of torture began, and the prisoners became silent. Then the public was lied to, the governments told us that torture was effective when it wasn't at all.
It turns out the military wanted to experiment with different methods of torture, and that was a big secret. But someone who witnessed the horrors talked and took pictures, then the whole world knew about Guantanamo Bay Prison. The new location is now kept super secret.
Apparently these military bigshots don't read about history. For example, many people were tortured to confess their sins and convert to Christianity during the time of the Spanish Inquisition. Victims said anything to stop the pain.
Torture only gets two results, a strong person would become silent, and a weak individual would say any thing.
