NYT Editorial Policy: Waterboarding Is Torture, Except When the U.S. Does It

Glenn Greenwald:

So according to The New York Times, it’s journalistically improper to call waterboarding “torture” — when done by the United States, but when Nazi Germany (or China) does exactly the same thing, then it may be called “torture” repeatedly and without qualification.

Absolutely appalling.
