The Headlines Confuse Me

"Eight accused of robbing, torturing drug dealers," CNN tells me. So I read the article. But wait, the victims were subjected to simulated drowning. That's not torture! That's a motivational tactic! It's how we get information from high-value targets! It's fraternity hazing! It's no more than an enhanced interrogation technique! Sure, the enhanced interrogation was in the service of robbery, not protecting anybody from the terrorists, but surely simulating drowning isn't anything to get worked up about. Right? Right?
