The guy's an egomaniac, and possibly deluded. I think they released his testimony just to shut him up before he confessed to the Lufthansa hijacking, the Lindbergh kidnapping, and poisoning El Cid.

(The scary thing, whether you think these confessions are coerced or strategic, is the real probability that he's covering for someone...)

If true, that should put to rest any and all notions about the efficacy of torture.
