U.S. military to issue new interrogations manual

The new manual, the first revision in thirteen years, will specifically ban practices such as stripping detainees, keeping them in stressful positions, imposing dietary restrictions and using sleep deprivation and dogs to intimidate prisoners, the officials said.

These interrogation methods were not banned in the manual used by the U.S. army in Iraq in 2003, allowing commanders and individual interrogators to make their own rules.
Are these practices not pretty much standard interogation techniques? It's not as if they were pulling out teeth or toenails?
