Does exposure to torture do any good?

In SERE, soldiers are, among more obviously useful lessons, moderately tortured. One side effect has been the argument that if it's done to US soldiers by their own side, it can't be so bad that it should be outlawed.

I haven't seen anyone say that exposure to torture techniques in the Resistance and Escape section of the curriculum helped them when they'd been captured, and I'm wondering if it's of any use.
