The Guardian today made public a CIA document allowing the agency's director to "approve, modify, or disapprove all proposals pertaining to human subject research."[1]

Enough is enough. Click here to demand that torturers be prosecuted.

At Guantanamo, the CIA gave huge doses of the terror-inducing drug mefloquine to prisoners without their consent,[2] as well as the supposed truth serum scopolamine.[3] Former Guantanamo guard Joseph Hickman has documented the CIA's torturing people, sometimes to death, and can find no explanation other than research.[4]

Click here if you believe this crosses a line and torture cannot be excused.

Non-consensual experimentation on institutionalized children and adults was common in the United States before, during, and after the U.S. and its allies prosecuted Nazis for the practice in 1947. The tribunal created the Nuremberg Code, standards for medical practice that were immediately ignored back home. Some American doctors considered it "a good code for barbarians."[5]

The code begins: "Required is the voluntary, well-informed, understanding consent of the human subject in a full legal capacity." A similar requirement is included in the CIA's rules, but has not been followed, even as doctors have assisted with such torture techniques as waterboarding.

Congress has busily re-banned torture a number of times in recent years. Now it must drop that charade and instead demand that the Attorney General enforce the anti-torture statute, which made torture a felony before George W. Bush ever became president.

Torture has not ended and won't as long as it's not punished.[6] An attorney general could be questioned and threatened with impeachment until our laws are enforced.

Click here to demand that Congress do so.
