Well that would just make me say what they want to hear, not the truth.

Torture has been shown to not get the truth to come out. You just tell your assailant what he wants to hear to get him to stop.

The point of torture is not to extract information.

It is a terror-tactic against an enemy. Otherwise, torture victims would be killed once they said whatever.

The whole reason torture victims are not killed, and they are later released, is so that their story can be passed on to their comrades outside of captivity. The torture is a terror tactic for them, and a tactic to gain political support at home, among the set of people who are scared of the terrorists, and have the primitive urge to terrorize back.

That's all torture is. That's all it is. Nothing more. The rest is all bullshit.

If it were for any other purpose, the people who were tortured would simply disappear, be tortured, then killed, and their bodies disposed of. Nobody would ever find out. There would be no reason for anybody else to ever find out. And nobody would. And I'm sure that some torture turns out this way. But the main point is to terrorize, and provoke a response. Why else would they take thousands of photos, and then pass them around?
