Well, here's a little story that might impact the debate over the effectiveness of torture—Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the guy who organized the 9/11 attacks, says that he lied and provided false information to interrogators to escape being tortured.
Accused Sept. 11 organizer Khalid Shaikh Mohammed told U.S. military officials that he gave false information to the CIA even after undergoing punishing bouts of interrogation, according to documents made public Monday.
"I make up stories," Mohammed said, describing in broken English an interrogation probably administered by the CIA that concerned the location of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
"Where is he? I don't know. Then he torture me," Mohammed said. "Then I said, 'Yes, he is in this area.' "
