A new report by Physicians for Human Rights offers evidence that American doctors working at Guantanamo Bay prison deliberately ignored evidence their patients had been tortured. They systematically suppressed medical signs that an individual had been tortured or had bones broken or been forced to undergo waterboarding because they did not wish to implicate military officials as guilty of war crimes. According to Vincent Iacopino and retired US General Stephen Zenakis, “the findings in these nine cases indicate that medical doctors and mental health personnel assigned to the US Department of Defense neglected and/or concealed medical evidence of intentional harm” to prisoners. They went on to emphasize “the full extent of medical complicity in US torture practices will not be known until there is a thorough impartial investigation including relevant classified information.”
Once upon a time the current president of the United States taught Constitutional law, but that was a long, long time ago before he placed votes before his ethical and moral values.
