Two links about torture

General discussion of why torture is apt to get inaccurate information. It was a pleasure to see that the large majority of comments on the page I read were anti-torture.

Moderate sleep deprivation (35 hours awake) greatly amplifies the effects of negative emotions. This is relevant to torture, because I think people are apt to underestimate the effects of combined tortures.

Links thanks to Andrew Ducker.
