I thought we were told the torture NEVER works?

Zarah Ghahramini wrote,

"Eventually, I was willing to put my name to any document placed before me, hoping to be spared further pain. This was a vain hope. I was finally released not because of my "confession" but because of the frantic efforts of friends on the outside, who paid money at the right time to the right people."

Torture is not just about extracting information, it is used to control a person to do what you want them to, otherwise, why would they do it? This debunks people who say torture never works.

Wow. What a hypocrite.

I was snatched off of the street and torturted by the government of the country in which I live but we are "ignorant" for not realizing how wonderful the homeland really is and looking deeper into its culture. I don't imagine there is much time for inward reflection if one is worried about being carted to prison and tortured for speaking out.
