Torture is a Tool of Terrorists

It’s as brazen as the hoax of austerity ( http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/03/censored-ben-franklin-on-the-real-cause-of-the-american-revolution/ ) or the “drug war” ( http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/05/the-cia-and-the-crack-cocaine-epidemic/ ) or infant circumcision ( http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2014/02/the-war-on-empathy-love-and-family/ ).  It doesn’t work for its stated purpose, but it’s a dandy way to subjugate people in a police state, when other “gentler” forms of social control fail.   The traitors are emerging from the shadows for their big satanic debut.   They’re hoping no one notices the trail of blood behind them.  But the smell of dead things is getting overpowering.

Top Interrogation Experts Agree: Torture Doesn’t Work

Apologists for torture say that it was a “necessarily evil” to stop future terror attacks.

However, the top interrogation experts all say torture that doesn’t work:

  • Army Field Manual 34-52 Chapter 1 says:

    “Experience indicates that the use of force is not necessary to gain the cooperation of sources for interrogation. Therefore, the use of force is a poor technique, as it yields unreliable results, may damage subsequent collection efforts, and can induce the source to say whatever he thinks the interrogator wants to hear.”

  • A 30-year veteran of CIA’s operations directorate who rose to the most senior managerial ranks, says:

    “The administration’s claims of having ‘saved thousands of Americans’ can be dismissed out of hand because credible evidence has never been offered — not even an authoritative leak of any major terrorist operation interdicted based on information gathered from these interrogations in the past seven years. … It is irresponsible for any administration not to tell a credible story that would convince critics at home and abroad that this torture has served some useful purpose.This is not just because the old hands overwhelmingly believe that torture doesn’t work — it doesn’t — but also because they know that torture creates more terrorists and fosters more acts of terror than it could possibly neutralize.”

  • The FBI interrogators who actually interviewed some of the 9/11 suspects say torture didn’t work
  • A former US Air Force interrogator said that information obtained from torture is unreliable, and that torture just creates more terrorists
  • A former high-level CIA officer states:

Many governments that have routinely tortured to obtain information have abandoned the practice when they discovered that other approaches actually worked better for extracting information. Israel prohibited torturing Palestinian terrorist suspects in 1999. Even the German Gestapo stopped torturing French resistance captives when it determined that treating prisoners well actually produced more and better intelligence.

Still don’t believe it? These people also say torture doesn’t produce usable intelligence:  ……..

Pilger: Silencing America as it prepares for war

Returning to the United States in an election year, I am struck by the silence. I have covered four presidential campaigns, starting with 1968; I was with Robert Kennedy when he was shot and I saw his assassin, preparing to kill him. It was a baptism in the American way, along with the salivating violence of the Chicago police at the Democratic Party’s rigged convention. The great counter revolution had begun. …
