  •  It also got us (none)
    ....a lot of phony terror alerts.  Where do you bet all that bad information came from?  Someone being tortured will say whatever it is they think you want them to say in order to stop the torture.

    How many billions has this cost us in stepped up terror alerts?

    •  "highly coloured material" (none)
      One of the things which Murray notes in the memos about intelligence services:  "not only ... [do they] get it wrong on even the most vital and high profile issues, but ... they have a particular yen for highly coloured material which exaggerates the threat."  Very true, I think.
