Medical professionals involved in Gitmo interrogations

My lede:

Health care professionals, some of whom may have been physicians, played a role in the coercive interrogations of suspected terrorists held at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, according to recently circulated documents from the International Committee of the Red Cross and President George W. Bush’s Office of Legal Counsel.

The reports, made public in April, showed that medical professionals were charged with monitoring detainees’ health during interrogations in which prisoners were forced to stand in stressful positions for extended periods, slammed into walls and suffocated using a technique known as waterboarding. Psychologists helped devise the aggressive interrogation tactics that the Red Cross report said amounted to torture.

The whole shebang.
