I Need Clarification

Human rights activists think America tortures prisoners and are mighty upset that we render prisoners to countries that torture.

One question: why do we bother rendering prisoners to countries that torture if we could just as easily do it ourselves? You'd think an evil regime such as ours would actually enjoy the first-hand experience of roughing up the poor lost souls we frame for "beheading while Moslem."

I'm just asking. Because they seem like incompatible accusations to me. Perhaps it makes more sense in French or Belgian.

And for the record, I oppose both torture and extraordinary rendition for the purpose of allowing torture.
