in my office we don't know. when the full moon story truing a lot. it's a little about al qaeda and how that group was able to evolve to a point where you learn later that the 19th dogs with box cutters was able to bring the united states war news in the air. immediately moloch was ordered to florida to help draw up the town of afghanistan on. a lady. in a little league in the

detention camp accused of being a member of al qaeda. he was considered high risk and for the next 22 months he was held in solitary confinement. after $911.00. and received a phone call. it was the day islam who did i told our security and explain to the u.s. government asked him to arrest me. mamadou was accused of being the leader of an al qaeda cell in both germany and montreal. in the chaos president bush signed
a secret directive giving the cia to kill all captured terrorists anywhere. in the years that followed several dozen crisscrossed the globe making thousands of flights. with an onslaught of prisoners the bush administration drew up a memorandum. known as the tool. it set out the legal basis for using these techniques in the war on terror and cited the hooded man's $978.00 judgment. within months the cia rolled out these methods. and all its black sites. they called them in hong interrogation techniques.
this cia turn 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 the capture of 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 conventions. 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. c
n a psychosis it's used to cameron's experiments on sensory deprivation and i haven't along with the code will see a program to create a horrific mix of torture techniques. social change has almost entirely taken place in consequence something else. it does not control. we need to protect society from those that can think it's 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. psychologists but king in the tour to president 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. and so suddenly i went crime and just being a psychologist in my office. to becoming the face of opposition to the a.p.'s
position. the 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 psychiatry's to and psychologists who were advising the interrogation teams. then i learned that they were not just advised that they were involved. by i was stunned. to.
it's taken all this time for me to build the picture of what's been involved here and the secrecy that was behind this torture program. it's been decades since the fall of spain's fascist regime but old wounds still haven't healed. me from a go. go feed a market economy supposed to mean in the us at the source mean older than most and they seem caught in which we. have newborn babies were torn from their mothers and given away and forced adoption they don't know they bought about a feast the robot is a fellow element to this day mothers still search for grown children while adults look in hope for their parents.
by the pandemic no certainly no borders to nationalities. as america we caught up with the we don't have the facts in the whole world needs to be. judge everyone is contributing way but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever the challenges create the response has been masked so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together. when i was a child small seemed wrong when old rules just don't call. me the world is
yet to shape our disdain you can't get educated and engaged in equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. in the punishment wing india block mamadou was isolated from all i think detainee. who quoted the freed because it's video call. i was there was.
i mean there was a level no food nothing the little isolation. the psychological and physical chip and i was been attempted to one who for 7 that would. make him. feel good because of my activism that i was glad to and killed him in some way to do harm to their does it over me. this is either to confess to little cry or we're going to put you in the door. and i said. go for it then you must i was really stupid the hero bag the. american said the logic says that without you they wouldn't meet $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. to see perry's. the to see i quit music. i felt like there was an avalanche you can see these boulders coming down and you can wave a wand you try to stop it i could not stop what was happening in 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 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 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 that 7 the order to abuse prisoners was only going to build up to that home will for 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 lab. and the moment i heard that
it evoked memories of nuremberg 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 disease. it was very dog except close to all blights. and then he stopped playing these music the bodies in the floor all day long. you know. i cannot explain to you one someone is but doing. the floor and. 2 women. and force them on to me.
was. you know the war has a moral imperative. america after $911.00 was in shock. and i think we have been deeply frightened and i think that fear how was it exploited certainly in the years after that and is continued to be exploited. when i understand things you more nato d.t.s. than any other person i've 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. that i've met khalid shaikh mohammad. ali bin
a tosh. ramzi bin al s'shibh amar al baluchi. and pus sali these band were subjected to all these tactics and there is absolutely no evidence. absolutely not a shred of evidence that they have these. tactics used on these men really gave us any intelligence that was important or useful to our country. iraq morphed into what we call isis today. the same. it's just a manifestation of torture. these are programs that we created and we're living
with those results today. you said. oh this is absolutely work 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 comprised of the test is told with the a.p.a. is coming. through here today. to reset our moral compass. he had been trying for 10 years to prevent psychologists from being part of national security issues. that it's. going to be politics and we changed
and. after being held for 3. months was released without charge. in the fight to simply 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 have 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. i was no match for them they destroyed me they would they broke and there is nothing i could say you know to save my face of to say all i want no i did not because those people out
a profession of doctors who studied just for this purpose to destroy human spirit and make it dependant 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 physical or psychological. do you think it's possible that our 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 whole of government will intensify the problem of the growing of the common. what we must do is to see how. you go friendly and all on fluently along those. a world in which we must at last to find the response ability for ourselves. to ensure that in the fight again. 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.
