It takes a certain breed and this is the breed the that CIA employs.
I think you misunderstand me, Only under pressure from a authority most people are willing to torture, because they think it is right.
["P]eople have learned that when experts tell them something is all right, it probably is, even if it does not seem so. (In fact, it is worth noting that in this case the experimenter was indeed correct: it was all right to continue giving the 'shocks' - even though most of the subjects did not suspect the reason.)"

If you ask it out of the blue only the sickos that the CIA employs would do it.
