    Who said anything about resisting over the long hall? You rape someone, threaten to cut off their nads, etc, etc, they will probably say something to make you stop.

    You stated I can think of more effective and less inhumane ways to save peoples lives; which seemed to suggest that you actually had a level of expertise in this subject. So I asked if you did.
    Do I need to pass some test to have it? I was unaware the government had knowledge no one else in the world had access too.

    Yup. And when you take away people's ability to perform reliable deception (which is a pretty cognitively complex act, unlike recall and verbalization) through shock, fear, sleep-deprivation and the like, then all they are left to tell you is what they know.

    Do I need to pass some test to have it?
    It is usually gained through study and experience, yes. That is why we have trained interrogators who go through these courses instead of, you know, pulling people off the street and sitting them across from detainees.

    I was unaware the government had knowledge no one else in the world had access too.
    well then you haven't been paying attention to the news. Allow me to provide you with a baseline piece.
