Doctors Aiding Torture - by Stephen Lendman


In April 2009, a confidential February 2007 ICRC torture report was publicly released. Titled, "ICRC Report on the Treatment of Fourteen 'High Value Detainees' in CIA Custody," it detailed harsh and abusive treatment from their time of arrest, detention, transfer, and incarceration at Guantanamo where ICRC professionals interviewed them.


Besides detailed information on torture and abusive treatment, they obtained damning, consistent detainee accounts of medical personnel involvement, including:


-- their monitoring of and direct participation in torture procedures;


-- instructing interrogators to continue, adjust, or stop certain ones;


-- informing detainees that medical treatment depended on their cooperation;


-- performing medical checks before and after each transfer; and


-- treating the effects of torture as well as ailments and injuries during incarceration.
