First, Do No Harm


I think it's fair to say that the doctors at Guantanamo Bay were not taught to do this in med school:

The former interrogators said the military doctors' role was to advise them and their fellow interrogators on ways of increasing psychological duress on detainees, sometimes by exploiting their fears, in the hopes of making them more cooperative and willing to provide information.

In response, Erica Jong at the Huffington Post proves that she hasn't learned anything from the Ordeal of Durbin:

Of course Nazi Germany asked doctors to experiment with Jews–thrusting them into freezing water, performing useless operations without anesthesia. But they were Nazis and we're Americans in love with liberty. Right? Also the Nazis thought Jews were subhuman so they got no benefit of empathy. So now we're doing that to Muslims. The Attorney General, Mr. Gonzales, approves.
