The American Psychological Association has voted not to ban members from assisting with interrogations at Guantanamo and other military prisons, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Instead, the group approved a measure listing specific procedures members won't help with, including sleep deprivation and water-boarding. "If we remove psychologists from these facilities, people are going to die," said an Army psychologist.
Some psychologists still argue that they shouldn't work at any detention centers where prisoners are held without charges. "We're talking about places where people being interrogated don't have human rights," one ban backer said during the contentious debate over the measure. Another supporter of the moratorium said the fight will go on "as long as it has to."
