“The methods that worked were the same ones that work in classic intelligence operations: establishing a rapport with the individual, understanding his fears, hopes, interests, quirks. It is a psychological task, very similar to what one should do when establishing any human relationship.”
Now a former director of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service Jose A. Rodriguez, Jr wrote a book “Hard Measures” in which he states that torture works. I believe he is trying to protect his own butts as he himself might have been involved in torture practices directly or indirectly.
I believe torture does not work and Bush and his cronies committed crimes against humanity. In the process they have endangered their own soldiers who in captivity might be tortured too since Bush administration felt it was justified.Recommend this post
