    The US is a party to the treaty. It is the process of offering reservations as constituted currently under international law that allows for such functional vetos over portions of the treaty.

    But believe me, the US wouldn't have spent so much time justifying their torture as not being against the UNCAT treaty (in the Yoo/Bybee/Bradbury memos) if they really didn't consider themselves part of the treaty.
