Want to get terrorists to talk? Try sugar-free cookies.

The "most successful interrogation" of terrorists was not due to any torturous tactics; no intimidation, no waterboarding, and certainly no playing Metallica 24/7, but in fact due to human kindness in the form of sugar-free cookies, served to the highly ranking - and diabetic - Abu Jandal.

 

Unfortunately, this may simply become an example of how successes can be ignored. One sees this in inner-city education, too - a person finds a successful method of [interrogation/education] that is easy to implement, not a fad, and (most importantly) shows human kindness. Everyone else in the field promptly ignores it because they're unwilling to switch from their old ways; they dismiss it as a fluke.

You're talking about Ali Soufan...nicest guy you'd ever want to meet...he lived on my floor in college....if you didn't instictively trust Ali, and open up to him, you were damaged goods...he's an awesome individual!
