reservoir dogs

there is a line in reservoir dogs, where "nice guy eddie" walks into the room after mr. blond has just cut off the police officer's ear in an attempt to get information out of him. he takes in the carnage that has occured and he screams:

"If you fucking beat this prick long enough, he'll tell you he started the goddamn Chicago fire, now that don't necessarily make it fucking so!"

olbermann discusses the merits, or lack of said merit, of using torture as a means of gettiing information. the debate, of course, is whether you can rely on information gained for torture. it seems that those on the ground, dealing with the gathering of information, tend to agree that for the most part, torture is unreliable, and has many blowbacks.
