3. Re-read my post.
I am not asking that at all, Skittles.

Here is what I said on that issue specifically in my post:

Now, do the above activities qualify for torture? Yes. Some of it is physical torture, some of it is psychological torture. But it's freaking torture (I'm looking at you, Rumsfeld).

I can't make it much clearer, Skittles.
