Just over a week ago a major operating manual for the United States Military prison camp at Guantanamo Bay was leaked and posted on the internet.This manual reveals that the military had an official policy of putting some new prisoners in isolation to break them down psychologically.A number of psychologists were involved in the development of the so-called ‘harsh interrogation techniques’.

the American Psychological Association continues to condone psychologists’ work on interrogations at Guantanamo and CIA black sites. 

KBOO reporter linda Olson-Osterlund talks with the head of the Oregon Psychological Association to see what position they are taking on this debate.
