‘US psychology agency colluded with govt torture program’

WASHINGTON — The US’s top psychology association colluded with the Pentagon and the CIA to devise ethical guidelines to support interrogation techniques used after the September 11 attacks that have since been labeled as torture, a report said Friday.
The American Psychological Association sought to “curry favor” with defense officials by issuing an ethics policy in line with government interrogation techniques post 9/11, such as waterboarding and sleep deprivation, the report commissioned by the body’s board found. The association colluded with several government agencies, including the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency, to devise ethical guidelines for the interrogation program under former president George W. Bush, according to the 542-page review.
The government agencies “purportedly wanted permissive ethical guidelines so that their psychologists could continue to participate in harsh and abusive interrogation techniques being used by these agencies after the September 11 attacks,” the report said.
“APA’s principal motive in doing so was to align APA and curry favor with DoD (Department of Defense). There were two other important motives: to create a good public-relations response, and to keep the growth of psychology unrestrained in this area.”
The findings come after Democrats on the US Senate Intelligence Committee in December released a damning report detailing brutal previously unknown interrogation techniques, including beatings and rectal rehydration, used by the CIA on Al-Qaeda suspects post 9/11.
Responding to the findings, the APA said Friday it would review its policies and urge a ban on its psychologists from participating directly in interrogations.
“The organization’s intent was not to enable abusive interrogation techniques or contribute to violations of human rights, but that may have been the result,” said Nadine Kaslow, who led an independent review committee that commissioned the report.
“We profoundly regret, and apologize for, the behavior and the consequences that ensued.”
The independent review led by attorney David Hoffman of Sidley Austin law firm, was commissioned by APA’s board of directors and took seven months to complete.
The comprehensive report said that in 2005, the APA created a task force to review the association’s ethical guidelines that determined when its psychologists could participate in interrogations.
A subsequent report from the task force found there were no ethical violations of psychologists’ participation in the government’s “enhanced interrogation” program — which included techniques such as waterboarding, forced “stress positions” and sleep deprivation.
Critics cited in the report said the APA’s decisions “were intentionally made to help the government commit torture.”
The report found that the ethical guidelines “prioritized the protection of psychologists — even those who might have engaged in unethical behavior — above the protection of the public.”
The review also found that two former APA presidents sat on CIA advisory committees, and one of them told the intelligence agency he did not think that sleep deprivation constituted torture. — AFP

19 August 2020 Ex country treasurer of Citibank, NA. Not a full time blogger but a pragmatist and a true reflector of life and faith. I only write that is honest, humane, non-conflicting with Qur'an and sunnah. In order to uphold those principles, unfortunately, I sometimes have to write some stories involving my senior colleagues (responsible for creating the roadmap of twin towers terrorism). The blogs can in an independent reader's mind hit as a losers quid pro quo or a born again jihadist's new "al Queda" aka cia tricks. They think probably to mislead the west (or if I may add the far east including A/ NZ) by one who was thought to be one of them and widely have been proven and considered to be a "trusted friend". Since no one knows how gently and decently he tried to slip away from a very thankless, unimaginably powerful and equally heartless culture (almost like tom cruises Firm Hollywood blockbuster movie). Although the drama of exit interview etc were completed but secretļy they plotted against me. Only much later to understand that they had robbed me off my freedom and pretended to be very offended by my "deserter act" even with my 6 months notice resignation. Nevertheless my resignation was a bolt from the sky for the hot shot wall street bankers. Later it hit me that it was a way to save their faces but with a strange slave master attitude towards a fellow human who comes from an ancient civilisation than them with mashallah (since Allah wished) solid foundation of family (ancestry that is traceable to 250/300 years) and education that was sufficient to save the Name Problem, the most important asset of a financial institution. It was Citigroup (then Citibank NA) the biggest and best name among all mega money centre banks (at least from the outside, from inside we could understand the same but never made felt or for that matter never paid to the heights of its success and earnings). Back to education, in the hind sight glad not an ivy league graduate because these schools don't prepare humans, rather arrogant untouched with reality elitist monsters! My blogs are mashallah mandatorily and readily available testimonials on limits mentioned in the Quran and Hadids (seometimes violated for the sake of upholding decency by exposing nudity, indecency & pornos which are being made cheaply, widely and indiscreamenently available to all). Well let me elaborate a little more why I have mashallah taken up writing. Just start reading my blogs and soon inshallah (Allah willing) you will learn something u won't regret. You will understand what I am trying is to eradicate the ignorance - mostly imposed by the western govts to mislead us all. Why? In order to inflict prejudice and hatred in our minds. That creates opportunity for them to falsify the truth against Muslims and their religion Islam. They don't care for u because they are mostly some ill trained power loving, wisdomless, wreckless, irresponsible, evil worshiping bigots, power hungry liars. The 911 part of my life that I, from time to time, share as evidences with the public my unfortunate job related exposure to the modern times largest, most sophisticated, merciless, non muslim religious fundamentalists terrorists plots under the protection and sympathy of their governments. These two combinedly are the causes for the demolition of the twin towers in Manhattan, NY. After that many more major terrorists acts throughout the world. They generally use sorcery to set these terrorist acts in special venues, with underlying days/ dates and occasions so that apparently Muslims are doubted and blamed. Purpose is to create hatred against the last and only true religion left in the world, Islam. Inshallah, although censored under most evil ways used to design through complex, difficult, intimidating and hostile situations surrounding me, and sickness implanted in me, I will continue on with my efforts to share the evidences and expose the hypocrits and lying crook perpetrators till they are brought to justice. Truth inshallah will come out sooner rather than later and the unholy bizness of generally portraying muslims as terrorists will stop once and for all. Hope you all peace, prosperity and happiness. May Allah bless us all. My website: https://www.munirchowdhury.blog
