Torture and Doctors

The Washington Post ran a question and answer session (online) with  President Bush Sr's phsyician, Dr. Burton Lee, concerning the role of physicians in the torture of detainees abroad.  You can read the question and answer session here.  Dr. Lee is a member of Physician for Human Rights.. 

In further news, this week's New Yorker has a piece by Jane Mayer discussing in more detail the role of physicians and their participation in the torture at Guantanamo Bay. Unfortunately the article is not available on-line but you can read her question and answer session about her piece here.
