It's Torture Now

A monster runs the CIA, though we knew that, but I was struck by something else in this news article about it.

ProPublica previously reported on cables from the Thailand black site, which also offered details of the C.I.A.’s methods. Like those documents, the new cables describe the waterboarding of Mr. Nashiri as well as the use of other torture techniques.

I'm not sure when they changed, but for years the New York Times almost never suggested or stated that waterboarding was torture.
