AMA report on CIA physicians' role in torture

The Journal of the American Medical Association today published a report on the role of CIA doctors and psychiatrists in developing innovative torture techniques during the Bush-Cheney administration—techniques which are presumably still in use today.

Notes Andrew Sullivan (who also posts highlights of the AMA's subscribers-only report), "These individuals need to be stripped of their medical licenses and prosecuted under the Geneva Conventions. Fat chance under Obama."
