No, they don't have to list every type of torture as water boarding is NOT torture!!! Yes, it is very uncomfortable, but it is not torture.
Water-boarding does not inflict pain nor injury and is therefore not torture! You can be water-boarded and then get up and walk away. John McCain can not raise his arms all the way up and that was not caused by water-boarding, was it?
Have you ever heard of the Geneva Accords? They did not address anything to do with psychological torture! Waterboarding was not internationally illegal. In 2009 Pres. Obama made waterboarding illegal but he did not declare it was torture!!!<quoted text>
Where did you get this from???
Torture is the practice or act of deliberately inflicting severe physical pain and possibly injury on a person. There is also Psychological torture
Many forms of psychological torture methods attempt to destroy the subject's normal self-image by removing them from any kind of control over their environment, creating a state of learned helplessness, psychological regression and depersonalization. Other techniques include enforced nudity and head shaving, sleep deprivation, hooding and other forms of sensory deprivation and forcing the subject to adopt stress positions.
This includes waterborading

FBI Interrogator: Waterboarding Does Not Work
From Wiki: In January 2009, with a change in administrations, U.S. President Barack Obama banned the use of waterboarding and other forms of torture in interrogations of detainees. In April 2009, the U.S. Department of Defense refused to say whether waterboarding is still used for training (e.g. SERE) U.S. military personnel in resistance to interrogation.
