Re: Renditions and torture - Stratfor
That sounds about right. These guys are always two steps ahead regarding the exploitation value. There was a day when interrogation was truly an art and only the talented and seasoned investigators were allowed access to the important detainees.
Now all it takes is a grasshopper (mixed drink with Ibogen, Thujole, Methamphetamine, and Valium, yum!) and a nine-volt battery attached to a plastic-sheathed electrode to stimulate the olfactory nerves. It leaves no trace and can also induce temporary amnesia, if necessary!
Remember who taught the South Americans to hang little boys by their gonads? Their deaths were merely to intimidate the ones who had the important information. Paradox of face.
