CIA doctors who monitored the agency's "enhanced interrogation" of terror suspects may be guilty of war crimes linked to human experimentation, according to a new report from a medical ethics group. The report from Physicians for Human Rights accuses the doctors and psychologists of being involved at every stage of the interrogation, the Guardian reports. It labels their recording of information on the effectiveness of the techniques as human experimentation, outlawed after the prosecution of Nazi doctors at Nuremberg.
"They were experimenting and keeping records of the results," the report's co-author writes. "That is a war crime under the Geneva Conventions." Officials from the American Medical Association say they in discussions with the Obama administration over the role of doctors in the CIA's program. "The participation of physicians in torture and interrogation is a violation of core ethical values," the group said in a statement.
