    14:08 If you tortured any of them I bet you could make them renounce Jesus.
    It would be one of the few times torture yielded accurate information.
    Why doesn’t torture usually get accurate information? People will do
    anything to get the pain to stop, including lying.

    Even WW2 Germany knew that being nice instead of torture works better.

    I can’t wait for the movie adaptation of the report

  6. Tiger says:

    Most successful interregator was a nazi who built relations with the
    integrated people by walking with them and relying on their wanting to talk
    to eventually give out info to him.

    honestly i’m not surprised. I mean flamethrowers are legal for anyone to
    own in America.
    Good old ‘Merica

    that last statement may have single handedly changed my perception of
    america

  9. Finalarchfiend says:

    Torture is not a way to get information. It is what Batman’s villains do to
    pass the time. It is how Vlad Dracula kept his country from being attacked
    by convincing everyone that he was a demon from Hell that terrifies Satan
    and not even Simon Belmont couldn’t whip him good. Almost everyone from
    history and fiction that we view as psychopaths have been known to torture.

    Torture is neither reliable nor humane, but y’all think “Nah, it’s all good
    if we do it to the baddies”

  14. Jack Williams says:

    I’m so glad John Oliver mentioned 24. It was such an amazing show in its
    prime

    Bernie Sanders is against torture? Just another reason to vote for him!

    The USA should NOT become right wing Conservatibe Terrorist in order to
    fight right wing Conservative Terrorist like ISIS, Hamas, Al Qaeda, The
    KKK, Leaders of Iran, ISIL, and lesser Conservative terrorist.

    Can I find the full audiobook please?

  18. John Smith says:

    John Oliver is right! We think about you that way. But, it’s not American.
    Corporate greed’s fault, you know?, it’s the whole species which is a shit.
    ACG only proves it.

  19. Selfs says:

    America the social nightmare, capitalisms final destination.
    I hope as long as i live, i never have to experience my country will go
    this far to protect the so called freedom and im ashamed that we still
    support your government after all.

    The CIA (Office) is not telling the American people the truth and that is
    they dont torture but “duress” people till they give up all the
    information. After they are done with getting information out of the
    target; they cause amnesia and put them back without everyone including the
    target ever knowing. This goes over a couple days they use look-a-likes in
    place of the person that is away. Again they dont torture but only duress a
    person without leaving a memory or physical scars.
