Rove on Stress Positions

Great catch by Jon Chait:

Rove writes, "Another McCain story, somewhat better known, is about the Vietnamese practice of torturing him by tying his head between his ankles with his arms behind him, and then leaving him for hours." So, wait, now putting prisoners in stress positions is torture?



I was going to say "it's funny because it's true" but it's really not all that funny that we now torture people as a matter of policy in the United States.
