Why, because it's not true?
Torture has been effective at extracting (usually false) confessions, not information, in fact that's specifically what our enemies have used it for.
Also just about everybody in a uniform disagrees with you.
"Some may argue that we would be more effective if we sanctioned torture or other expedient methods to obtain information from the enemy. They would be wrong. Beyond the basic fact that such actions are illegal, history shows that they also are frequently neither useful nor necessary. Certainly, extreme physical action can make someone ï¿½??talkï¿½??; however, what the individual says may be of questionable value. In fact our experience in applying the interrogation standards laid out in the Army Field Manual (2-22.3) on Human Intelligence Collector Operations that was published last year shows that the techniques in the manual work effectively and humanely in eliciting information from detainees.

it's like the oppostite of what you said.
And when I said this before you'll remember you called me a liar.
Of course I realize this isn't fair because you don't what you're talking about.
