Apparently, cops don't have to testify to anything that's said in a police interview, except what the prosecution deems beneficial to their case. Anything outside that scope, that the defense might want to ask, can be deemed as 'hearsay'.
Also, apparently cops can make video and audio tapes of interviews, transcribe them, then destroy the original tapes without making them available to the defense.

So if we catch POWs, and you know they know something, are you saying we should pamper these guys?.
All im saying is, if it's known for sure these guys know something of major importance, we should be able to do whatever it takes to protect our own.
Even if that means getting a little physical with them.
And If we know before hand that they're not a major player, they should be shot on the battle field.
