not torture

so i'm sitting here listening to the radio... and posting 1-handed... while trying to soothe a fussy baby, and i hear this report about the trial of a terror suspect and how statements taken under interrogation were being used in the trial. it turns out that while being interrogated this guy was being sleep deprived by being woken up every hour. as the mother of a 1-month old i have to admit that is darned annoying, but calling it torture... as the talking head did... is perhaps going too far. on the other hand the person waking me up once an hour is much cuter than any marine.
