Robert Baer, a CIA case officer in the Middle East until 1997, told us how it works. "We pick up a suspect or we arrange for one of our partner countries to do it. Then the suspect is placed on civilian transport to a third country where, let's make no bones about it, they use torture. If you want a good interrogation, you send someone to Jordan. If you want them to be killed, you send them to Egypt or Syria. Either way, the U.S. cannot be blamed as it is not doing the heavy work."
I disagree with the torture to save lives scenario, is it justified torture an innocent man, in case he holds information that may save thousands of lives?
I mean when you start gouging their eyes out, they'd tell you they were Lord Lucan if it meant no more pain.
