Not "Outsourcing Torture", Just Sending Them Home

The New York Times > Editorials & Opinion: "The protections due to any prisoner of the U.S. cannot be changed by sending him to another country."

Aren't we often talking about sending them back to their home country? Isn't it possible that people from their own culture might have an advantage to getting information from them, understanding them? I don't know the answer to that, but I have a hard time thinking that we are sending all of these people to be held by their own country in order to ensure that they are "tortured". We may just be sending them saying, 'this guy is your problem. You watch him'.
