Let me clarify the analogy for you:
A prisoner is renditioned to another country, where the new country holding them does use torture.
A bank robber takes a cab to a bank downtown, where the bank is then held up for a robbery.
In neither of these scenarios is the destination outcome GUARANTEED to happen, nor is the action at the destination predicated on the method of transport.
