CIA Personnel Engaged in Human Experimentation

Posted in Uncategorized by ce399 on 07/06/2010

A new report from Physicians for Human Rights has accused the Bush administration of conducting illegal and unethical human experimentation and research on prisoners in CIA custody. The report details how doctors, psychologists and other professionals monitored sleep deprivation on more than a dozen prisoners, as well as the effects of large- volume waterboarding. Frank Donaghue of Physicians for Human Rights said, “The CIA appears to have broken all accepted legal and ethical standards put in place since the Second World War to protect prisoners from being the subjects of experimentation. Not only are these alleged acts gross violations of human rights law, they are a grave affront to America’s core values.”

    This is still going on today in the US with covert electronic harassment programmes.
