Torture's Terrible Toll - Newsweek National News - MSNBC.com

Mcain makes his case against torture here.
How strange that a case should have to be made.
Part of that case is that torture yields bad intelligence.
Meanwhile Blair wants 90 days to extract intelligence by torture of people abroad to attack his enemies at home.

Torture's Terrible Toll - Newsweek National News - MSNBC.com: "The abuse of prisoners harms, not helps, our war effort. In my experience, abuse of prisoners often produces bad intelligence because under torture a person will say anything he thinks his captors want to hear—whether it is true or false—if he believes it will relieve his suffering."
