...headline in the NYTimes today:

"03 U.S. Memo Approved Harsh Interrogations"

Why is it the media won't call it what it is? While these are certainly "harsh interrogation" techniques, they are more accurately defined as torture. This headline is similar to reading "Boat Traveling from U.K. to U.S. sinks" when the Titanic sank - it wasn't just a boat, it was a massive cruise ship.

What this memo tried to justify was not just "harsh interrogation techniques"; it was torture.

And even though this memo was "later rescinded", that doesn't mean the techniques were.
