Torture define per UN Convention Against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment


This UN article is interesting to me. (pg 38) If I understand this correctly, this article states that any act to extract information or a confession by use of force, either physical or mental is not lawful. Since this is supported by the UN, and assumably accepted by many nations, how does the United States justify the use of torture of Iraqi prisoners? In identifying these alleged abuses were forensic nurses used?
