The CIA Tortured And Experimented On Human Beings
Submitted by: normalfreak2⚫ 11 months ago
This report is something we always sort of assumed, but just never had concrete proof until now. The Senate Intelligence Committee’s summary of its investigative report, reveals that the CIA tortured and experimented on human beings, specifically American prisoners of war.
At the helm of this human experimentation project were two psychologists hired by the CIA, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen. They designed interrogation and detention protocols that they and others applied to people imprisoned in the agency’s secret “black sites.”
Mitchell, like former CIA Director Michael Hayden and others who have defended the torture program, argues that a fundamental error in the Senate report is the elision of means (waterboarding, “rectal rehydration,” weeks or months of nakedness in total darkness and isolation, and other techniques intended to break prisoners) and ends—manufactured compliance, which, the defenders claim, enabled the collection of abundant intelligence that kept Americans safe.
Rectal rehydration? Does anyone have any good YouTube links? Asking for a friend.
