The Daily Show looks at the labyrinthine efforts on the part of the White House to obfuscate and rationalize their use of torture on detainees.

STEWART: How is fake drowning, sleep deprivation, how isn't that torture?

OLIVER: That is not torture.

STEWART: Why?

OLIVER: Because we don't torture.

STEWART: Meaning we don't do those things?

OLIVER: No, no. Meaning if we do do those things, they must not be torture.
