I’m not saying it wasn’t torture…

January 14th, 2009

….but when a government official asserts that the treatment of a particular Guantanamo Bay prisoner rose to the level of torture and says

“You think of torture, buy viagra store you think of some horrendous physical act done to an individual. This was not any one particular act; this was just a combination of things that had a medical impact on him, that hurt his health. It was abusive and uncalled for. And coercive. Clearly coercive.”

…I have to ask:

Isn’t being “coercive” pretty much the point of an interrogation?
