If a Muslim or, for that matter, Jewish prisoner was forced to eat meats prohibited under his religion, then, yes, it probably is.

we only torture for the right reasons.
Would you be a tad less sarcastic if we called it American Fabulousism?

And while I'm at it, let me state my position on "torture" in the language of the Left.

Torture* should be kept safe... legal... and rare.

* As defined by Code Pink, Frank Rich, Keith Olbermann, capitulating Europeans and all other sufferers of Bush Derangement Syndrome -- not the "infliction of intense pain (as from burning, crushing, or wounding) to punish, coerce, or afford sadistic pleasure" kinda torture as defined by Merriam Webster and denizens of reality.
