Do PROFESSIONAL information acquistion and analysis personnel need torture?

Hum.... Sad that the old code has been stepped down, but
For six decades, they held their silence.

The group of World War II veterans kept a military code and the decorum of their generation, telling virtually no one of their top-secret work interrogating Nazi prisoners of war at Fort Hunt.

"We got more information out of a German general with a game of chess or Ping-Pong than they do today, with their torture," said Henry Kolm, 90, an MIT physicist who had been assigned to play chess in Germany with Hitler's deputy, Rudolf Hess.

Blunt criticism of modern enemy interrogations was a common refrain at the ceremonies held beside the Potomac River near Alexandria. Across the river, President Bush defended his administration's methods of detaining and questioning terrorism suspects during an Oval Office appearance.

Interrogators Fought 'Battle of Wits'

So when the WarMongerWannaBe's want to whine about how McCain was not really tortured in HanoiHilton, so that they can be consistent with their current alledged policies about Information Extraction....

Try to remember there maybe professionals about....
