tor·ture –noun 1. the act of inflicting excruciating pain, as punishment or revenge, as a means of getting a confession or information, or for sheer cruelty.
Waterboarding and the wall thing do NOT even fall under this definition. These things scare the bad guys not harm them. It does not cause excruciating pain. It is uncomfortable at most. We scare the information out of them because they are cowards and will give it up easily.
Ripping a baby from the womb is excruciating and is sheer cruelty and possibly revenge either for the baby being there, or for the woman getting pregnant.
Therefore what happened at GITMO = discomfort.
What happens to babies ripped from the womb = torture.
