  • Well, huh. I'm going to cling to the first comment listed on that page - that Alan West is very unlikely to get in. I should, of course, be highly anti-torture, but I've never seen stats to prove it doesn't work, and - oh right, now I feel dirty.

Are you saying that you're not anti-torture? 'Cause... okay. That saddens me.

The problem with torture is that you're likely to get spurious answers from someone just to get it to stop. It's not a really helpful means of interrogation.

From that link:
There are no recorded instances of getting useable intelligence from torture

Isn't that good enough?
