o, I forgot,
-"torture" is not allowed in any way at anytime during the trial/confinement of an enemy combatant.

--The working definition of torture still prevents people from doing "severe" physical or mental harm. this banns things like
-water withholding
-and other such things.

One thing that is important to remember is that if you go strictly by the Geneva rules for a POW you can't interrogate them at all, and "degrading" treatment is also illegal. SO for example we would no longer be able to use female CIA interrogators because it is an unnecessary humiliation of most terrorists religions.
