. to destroy. i have to admit. it's think i know the world fairly well that these even if i can travel to it but i really didn't know about the twin towers i didn't know the twin towers even existed. i would never forget that. i was installing surface for a gentleman then. one of the workers said it is for war america and i will see what.
we choose downtown. and when the full moon started to rain a lot. of little about and how that group was able to evolve to a point. later in the 19th. with box cutters was able to bring the united states nice. place. immediately. to florida to help draw up game of afghanistan on. later. a lengthy list. 2001 i made the decision life

22 months he was held in solitary confinement. weeks after $911.00. in a sea of the phone call. it was lydia is the director of our security through school and explained to me that the u.s. government asked him to our arrest me. mohamedou was accused of being the leader of an al qaeda cell in both germany and amman trailed. in the chaos president bush signed a secret directive giving the cia all 30 to kill all. check terrorists anywhere.
in the years that followed several dozen criss cross the plane making thousands of flights. faced with an onslaught of prisoners the bush administration drew up a memorandum. known as the toolchain memo whose. it set out the legal basis for using these techniques in the war on terror and cited the hooded men's $978.00 judgment. within months the cia rolled out these methods with england town america and all its black sites . they called them in hostile interrogation techniques. to cia chon to contract psychologist who had no experience with al qaeda
who had no experience with interrogations and had no experience in the middle east jim and i went into a cubicle set down under a he said out of the typewriter and together we wrote out the list as techniques that we thought. had worked well in the search cool well i had already been told that the geneva conventions didn't apply to their capture detainees did not did not apply to the couch of detainees by the authorities at the cia and so i don't think i thought about geneva convention. made became what i was often referred to as a modern day equivalent of snake oil salesman. these 2 psychologists who were awarded a $183000000.00 contract to run a program of torture. cia's
psychosis used to cameron's experiments on sensory deprivation and. along with the cold will see it programmed to create a horrific mix of torture techniques. social change was almost entirely taken place in consequence something else. it does not speak of control. we need to protect society from those that can think of one small thing to kill us the strong must protect others from these people. the american psychological association is the world's largest organisation of psychologists and probably has the most influence
over the community of psychologists around the world. secretly the a.p.a. to make it psychologists but king in the tour to present to override that ethical code to do new holland if the minute change in cia be quiet it. program of abusive interrogations the program of torture at the cia was designed by psychologists and one tunnel was designed by a psychologist and a psychiatrist after they were trained in the techniques and in the program of the cia abuse. and that's when i could basically stand you know. and so suddenly i went chronic just being the psychologist in my office. to becoming the face of opposition to the a.p.s. . war is
a strategic business. our planning and our execution needs to be really well thought out. and it has consequences for years. i was in conversations with the department defense and with the white house. and i learned that we had psychiatrists and psychologists who were advising the interrogation teams. then i had learned that they were not just devising that they were involved. but i was stunned. it's taken all this time for me to build the picture of what's been
is your media a reflection of reality. in a world transformed. what will make you feel safe. isolation community. are you going the right way or are you being. direct. what is true what is faith. in a world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. or remain in the shallows. it's been decades since the fall of spain's fascist regime but old wounds still haven't healed. me coffee to market economies
a bowl. in the us at the source mean older than us and they seem content to you know cells of newborn babies were torn from their mothers and given away and forced adoption only. to this day mothers still search for grown children adults look in hope for their birth parents . in the punishment wing india block mamadou was isolated from only i think detainee . recorded the freed because it's a video call. i was there was. i mean there was a level no food nothing total isolation. the
psychological and physical chip and i was been attended to what do you feel 7 that would. make him. feel because of my activism that i was glad to get him in some way to do harm to say that is it of him and. this it be that you confess to little cry or we're going to put you in the door so pulled it out and i said. go for it then you must i was really stupid the hero bag the. american said the logic says that with all too there wouldn't be $911.00. suddenly mama did was cloths the most prisoners in guantanamo. the role of psychologist
in this torture program astounds me i saw that were heading down a road that i knew was going to be disastrous. in 2002 mach put his neck on the line and then to see perry's. good to see i am using. i felt like there was an avalanche you can see these boulders coming down and you could wave a wand you try to stop it i could not stop what was happening. to the bloodthirst to torture people was just too. green for any one person stop. your interrogation rules of engagement go far beyond should need a convention stress positions and sleep management dietary manipulation all of these things go far beyond a standard which says there will be no physical or mental torture nor any other form of course that's the geneva convention these rules of engagement for interrogation issued by your department are inconsistent with those my recollection
is that any instructions that have been issued or anything that's been authorized by the department was checked by the lawyers in your shop in the department in the office of the secretary of defense and deemed to be consistent with it you know absolutely and you see u.s. secretary of defense donald rumsfeld was convinced that mohammed he recruited 3 of the $911.00 hijackers he personally authorized a 90 day special projects status from hamas with her endless consequence and 7 the order to abuse prisoners was only going to build up to that home wolf water they need justification and so what they did was they sent a colonel. to guantanamo to look and try to justify what was going on. and he said quote tunnel base is america's battle land. and the moment i heard that it evoked memories of norman kirk it evoked memories of what the not nazis were
doing experiments. to see if they started with the sleep deprivation regime. and then a massive guide rod disease. it was very dog except close to all blights. and then he stopped playing these music and did the bodies on the floor all day long. you know. i cannot explain to one someone is doing shackles the floor and. 2 women. and force them onto.
a no war has a moral imperative. america after $911.00 was in shock. and i think we had been deeply frightened and i think that fear how was it exploited certainly in the years after that and has continued to be exploited. but i understand things you more nato in t.t.'s and any other. you know i've met a number of them you know so many probably more than anyone else on earth can you tell me about them. i can't specifically talk about what i have. my meetings with them or what i've learned about these men. i've met colleagues shaikh mohammad. ali bin a tosh. ramzi bin al s'shibh amaral baluchi. and.
these band were subjected to all these tactics and there is absolutely no evidence. absolutely not a shred of evidence that it did these. tactics used on these men really gave us any intelligence that was important or useful to our country. you know iraq more into what we call isis today. the same. it's just a manifestation of torture. these are we created and we're living with those results today. you said. oh this is absolutely we're crimes
we knew there. this new substitute. is here to rectify 10 years of deceitful and secret collusion to impede the will of the membership. interim still going to rise up the protest is told with the a.p.a. this coming. through here today. to reset our moral compass. had been trying for 10 years to prevent psychologist from being part of national security interjections. that it's. going to be politics and we changed and. after being
held for 3 years. was released without charge. in the fight to get on a plane. what would have happened what i'd end up in guantanamo would these with these painful with this painful period ever have happened would i be the person i had today i caught on to those questions but i do often say to myself why didn't i just get on a plane and go back. and do these confessions were found to be the result of torture. he was released without charge after 14 years in kuantan the man. i was no match for them they destroyed me they would they have broken and there is nothing i could say you know to save my face of the say all i want no i do not because those people out a profession of doctors who studied just for this purpose to destroy human
spirit and make it dependent began and make them confess to what ever they wanted them to confess to. in august 2017 the 2 psychologists who created the cia's torture program were about to be put on trial we were soldiers doing what we were instructed to do we knew it was lawful we knew it was legal we knew it had been vetted in approved do you think it's possible as a psychologist that an individual who was subjected to them suffered a long term visible or psychological jeff. do you think it's possible better sleep deprivation taken to the extreme could induce severe mental pain or suffering protection. the cia settled out of cool for an undisclosed amount no
liability was submitted. world lol and government will intensify the problem of the growing of the common. what we must do is to see. its new go friendly in all on fluently along those. a world in which we must at last to find the responsibility for ourselves. to ensure that in the fight it gets. he says and. we continue to have all the necessary power to detain terrorists wherever we chase them down where ever we find them. and in many cases for them it will now be one tatt imo. thanks cough the name to a construction program has been announced at guantanamo bay which could see it
tripled in population. what makes this issue important when tunnel has become the calling cry tour here is some sign of american power that allows people to think that america will be great again. the united states right now is. a terrorist attack away from instituting torture. since the 950 s. we know these techniques have been yeast in afghanistan and tina australian. prison british guy on british coming canada. great britain guatemala honduras iran iraq israel.
l. look forward to talking to you all. that technology should work for people. i robot must obey the orders given by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the 1st law. or should be very careful about official intelligence to the point all v.s.e. is to create trusts in fear. on various shots and with artificial intelligence will summon the demon. must protect its own existence and existence.
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. is your review. a reflection of reality. in a world transformed. what will make you feel safe. isolation community. are you going the right way or are you being led. direct. what is true what is faith. in the world
corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. or a maybe in the shallows. we're more politicized than ever or more polarized than ever the 21st century when speed is measured in megabytes per 2nd. most along the. seeds in him electronic mail electronic money electronic media infinite possibilities for exchanging information i mean me and my military wives to freedom of speech and social media bent censorship of double standards who should judge what can be said online. but i want. the
