The American Ghost of Dr. Mengele

Detainees in custody of the US military were interrogated while drugged with powerful antipsychotic and other medications that “could impair an individual’s ability to provide accurate information,” according to a declassified Department of Defense (DoD) inspector general’s report that probed the alleged use of “mind altering drugs” during interrogations.

In addition, detainees were subjected to “chemical restraints,” hydrated with intravenous (IV) fluids while they were being interrogated and, in what appears to be a form of psychological manipulation, the inspector general’s probe confirmed at least one detainee – convicted “dirty bomb” plotter Jose Padilla – was the subject of a “deliberate ruse” in which his interrogator led him to believe he was given an injection of “truth serum.” 

Truthout obtained a copy of the report – “Investigation of Allegations of the Use of Mind-Altering Drugs to Facilitate Interrogations of Detainees” – prepared by the DoD’s deputy inspector general for intelligence in September 2009, under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request we filed nearly two years ago.

Over the past decade, dozens of current and former detainees and their civilian and military attorneys have alleged in news reports and in court documents that prisoners held by the US government in Guantanamo, Iraq and Afghanistan were forcibly injected with unknown medications and pills during or immediately prior to marathon interrogation sessions in an attempt to compel them to confess to terrorist-related crimes of which they were accused.”

Editor’s Note: Read the entire article. The doctors, nurses and personnel aiding, supervising, and perpetuating medical torture in our names are no better than Nazi’s like Dr. Mengele

    This is a crime against humanity. They should all be facing charges at the Intrenational Court in the Hague. But we all know that they won’t. And even more importantly, neither will those higher up in our government who most probably ordered this, or at the very least, knew about this and fully approved.

    sadly, I am not shocked. Outraged, yes, but not caught unawares. Now the news is out there — and nothing will change. Another nail in the coffin of United States.

    A distressing number of American officials seem to believe the old Vietnam War quote, that they have to “destroy the [nation] in order to save it.” Spare us from being “saved”!
