Interrogation, not torture

The Medium Lobster explains the difference:

Q: Help! I’m being tortured to death in an American military prison! What should I do?
A: First of all, you should get your facts straight. You’re not being tortured to death in an American military prison; you’re being interrogated to death in an American detainment facility. America does not tolerate torture.

This is a subtle but important point.
