Media Advisory: PHR Experts Available to Comment on Torture
Date:4/22/2009

e tasked to justify torture, US psychologists were busy perpetrating it. PHR maintains that such individuals must face prosecution for breaking the law and must lose their professional licenses for betraying their profession's ethics.

The SASC report (PDF) is the most comprehensive account so far of the Bush Administration's regime of torture and the central role health professionals played in it. Senator Carl Levin (D-MI), Chair of SASC, is calling for the Department of Justice to review the report and pursue any evidence of criminal wrong-doing, a move which PHR supports.

PHR is renewing its call to Congress and the White House to immediately create a non-partisan commission to investigate the Bush Administration's use of torture, with specific focus on the role that psychologists and medical professionals played in its design, justification, supervision, and use.

Since 2005, PHR has documented the systematic use of psychological and physical torture by US personnel against detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghraib, Bagram airbase, and elsewhere in three groundbreaking reports: Break Them Down, Leave No Marks, and Broken Laws, Broken Lives. The organization has repeatedly called for an end to the use of SERE tactics by US personnel, an end to the use of Behavioral Science Consultation Teams
