(Source: Reuters photo) Related News We learned a lot from that big Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA interrogation tactics after 9/11 It was may be the first time in American history that the term “rectal hydration” appeared in family newspapers throughout the land One of the most unnerving parts involves the fact that the waterboarding ice baths and wall-slamming were conducted under the direction of an outside contractor It isn’t the first time the government turned to private enterprise and wound up with a human rights disaster — think Abu Ghraib But this seems like an excellent place to demand a cease and desist The specialists’ names are James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen Like many contractors doing work for the government they’re former government workers themselves — in this case military psychologists Mitchell and Jessen had acquired their expertise by teaching air force officers how to resist brutal Cold War-style interrogations Think pilots who get shot down behind enemy lines and get tortured by communists And for all we know they may have done a great job showing their pupils how to withstand pressure to record a statement denouncing the United States when they crash-land in North Korea But it’s not precisely the same thing as trying to get a suspected al-Qaeda operative to tell you where Osama bin Laden is hiding Plus Mitchell and Jessen had no experience as actual interrogators did not speak any of the detainees’ languages and had no particular knowledge about Islam or al-Qaeda They did have some theories about other psychologists’ work subjecting dogs to random electric shocks until their will to resist was completely broken Maybe the two men thought you could torment human beings into the same state of “learned helplessness” Worth a try right Mitchell and Jessen set about applying the theory to prisoners the CIA had collected Some of them had already been cooperating with interrogators Others turned out later to have had no involvement with al-Qaeda whatsoever Others undoubtedly were bad people with information the CIA needed who had resisted talking under nonviolent interrogation The question then becomes whether they cooperated better under “learned helplessness” or simply made up stories to placate their torturers and send the CIA off in the wrong direction The Intelligence Committee report concludes that all the torturing produced very little information that was useful and possibly quite a bit that was made-up While we would love to believe that the human rights angle would be most effective in shocking the American people polls show that when it comes to suspects with possible terror involvement the public attitude toward torture is kind of meh So wisely the committee’s big point was useless/ counterproductive And why the private contractors Maybe because the actual government interrogators didn’t believe torture worked either The New York Times For all the latest Opinion News download
