Interesting: How Shrinks Worked At Gitmo

Military shrinks, working in so-called "Biscuit Teams," studied Gitmo prisoners in order to aid torturers, ahem, interrogators in their important work of (allegedly) abusing prisoners, says this report from the Daily Kos by ACLU investigator Jennifer Turner. Turner, who has been present during pre-trial hearings in Guantanamo, reveals new details about how the Biscuit Teams and interrogators worked. The involvement of military psychologists has sparked controversy at the American Psychological Association, which is holding a referendum on whether members can participate in such activities. See more on that in this New York Times story.
