"Is that torture?"

The glorious cheerleader pyramid is depicted in both images below, according to Charles Graner's defense attorney. It appears to be a pretty well-argued case, doesn't it?

Defence attorney Guy Womack insisted a tether is a "valid tool", and denied that the photos depicted real abuse.

He compared pictures of naked Iraqi prisoners in a human pyramid to cheerleaders at US sports events, who form pyramids "all over America".

"Is that torture?" he asked, opening Spc Graner's defence on Monday.
