When The Washington Post Uses "Torture"

The paper does do so, as long as it is not committed by white men with enormous power:

"My children are not animals," she said, meaning Javon and his two older brothers, both also behind bars. One is awaiting sentencing for armed carjacking; the other, a trial in a torture-kidnapping case.

"The police is always trying to pin stuff on my kids that they didn't do," she said.

Torture is what street criminals do; it is not, by definition, what Charles Krauthammer's friends authorize. It's really quite simple when you keep those rules in mind and never ask any questions.
