American Samizdat

Tuesday, August 21, 2007. *
The American Psychological Association (APA) has voted to overwhelmingly reject a measure that would have banned its members from participating in interrogations at Guantanamo Bay and other US detention centers.

In recent months a string of exposes in, Vanity Fair and The New Yorker have revealed psychologists have played a key role in designing the CIA’s torture tactics. Outraged APA members initially introduced a moratorium resolution that called for an outright ban on participation.

Congrats, APA! You've really shown the American people and the world where you stand: Mengele would have been proud!

And about crossing that "big black line" which separates interrogation from torture: it will be crossed by your members, as it has been over and over again. -MR
