getting outta Gitmo

The Guardian reports of the british detainees from Guantanamo and the media spinning the story like a dryer. There was a book and a movie to be released about one prisoner who has finally been released, the book says the man was innocent so of course the government must use the fourth branch to tell everyone how they were not innocent and their proof was a confesion obtained after long periods of torture. Ok this always brings me back to why torture doesnt work, or at least doesnt work in the way the usually claim. The information recieved from a torture victim means nothing. If you torture someone long enough they will tell you anything you want to hear wether its true or not. This article doesnt get particularly in depth, which is to bad as i would like to hear more about what happened.
