20. No, he probably doesn't even have any info to torture him for either

I doubt he even has any worthwhile information about any other terrorists/terrorist groups anyway. Anyone he has would probably already be well known by Russia, which seems likely to cooperate with us on this, since the country the kid is from hits them with terrorist attacks far more often then any western nation does.

And even if he did have useful information, torture is a bad way to go about getting that info, there's much better interrogation methods that have proven histories of getting far more accurate information with far less lies and made up stories to make the pain of torture stop.

Will this kid be tortured? [View all] radiclib Apr 2013 OP
