CIA and torture

So I'm reading this article about torture the CIA allegedly authorized even after we'd deemed it illegal and I was struck by something. You can read the article in its entirety here:

This article was written and published by the Associated Press. And not to make light of the situation but I read this sentence:

Before scaling back its "enhanced interrogation program," the CIA used 10 harsh methods, including waterboarding, a form of simulated drowning. It later used six techniques, including sleep deprivation, dietary manipulation and slapping.

And my first thought was Motherhood is a form of torture.
