"Quaestiones sunt fallaces et inefficaces."

"Torture is deceptive and ineffectual."
Detainee's Harsh Treatment Foiled No Plots
Waterboarding, Rough Interrogation of Abu Zubaida Produced False Leads, Officials Say
Loyal readers will recognize the lead quotation ("Quaestiones sunt fallaces et inefficaces.") as reflecting the views of that pinko leftie liberal, Inquisitor General Nicholas Eymerich:
He was the first inquisitor to get around the Church's prohibition against torturing a subject twice by interpreting directive very liberally, permitting a separate instance of torture for a separate charge of heresy.
[Wikipedia entry, Nicholas Eymerich]
True for the Spanish Inquisition, true still today:
"Torture is deceptive and ineffectual."
Stop the madness!
