03/06/12 – Robert Pallitto – The Scott Horton Show

by | Mar 6, 2012 | Interviews

Robert Pallitto, professor of political science and contributor to Foreign Policy In Focus, discusses his article “Psychologists and Torture, Then and Now;” post-9/11 US interrogation practices, adapted from Cold War-era techniques used for extracting false confessions; the professional psychologists who aided the CIA in coercive interrogations and torture, disregarding ethical constraints; the failure of state regulatory agencies or the APA in stripping the licenses of torture enablers; and why there is no exact torture “science” for extracting truthful statements – which is why rapport-building techniques should be used instead.
