Psychologists who helped craft CIA interrogation should be free from liability as was Nazi poison gas technician, say defense lawyers

Psychologists who helped craft CIA interrogation should be free from liability as was Nazi poison gas technician, say defense lawyers | 27 July 2017 | The two psychologists who helped craft the CIA's harsh interrogation methods [torture] used in the war on terror should be as free from liability as a worker for a company that supplied the Nazis with poison gas used in concentration camps, defense lawyers asserted in a motion to dismiss a lawsuit from former detainees prisoners. The American Civil Liberties Union challenges that claim, saying the psychologists should be held accountable for the methods they designed following the Sept. 11 terror attacks, including waterboarding and beatings. The sides plan arguments Friday in U.S. District Court in Spokane...Like the gassing technician who was acquitted on charges of helping the Nazis, Spokane psychologists James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen were independent contractors who lacked authority to "control, prevent or modify" the CIA's use of enhanced interrogation techniques, their lawyers said.
