Summary
Steven H. Miles, M.D. (Professor of Medicine and Professor, Center for Bioethics, University of Minnesota Medical School, Minneapolis, Minnesota) described the recent abuse of disarmed captives in United States run prisons in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo. Specifically, Dr. Miles focused on ethical conduct along with the violation of the Geneva convention and the complicity of medical personnel during coercive interrogation proceedings. Dr. Miles concluded with remarks concerning the implication of these abuses and the reasons for and against the use of torture for getting information. Richard J. Bonnie, LL.B. (John S. Battle Professor of Law and Professor of Psychiatric Medicine and Director, Institute of Law, Psychiatry, and Public Policy, University of Virginia) highlighted two theories concerning prisoner abuse which were addressed in Dr. Miles' book entitled, "Oath Betrayed: Torture, Medical Complicity and the War on Terror (Simon & Schuster, 2006). These two theories revolved around the practice and culture of torture and the proper ethical role medical personnel should embrace. Professor Bonnie also worked on the American Psychiatric Association panel which approved the "APA Position Statement on Psychiatric Participation in Interrogation of Detainees," in May 2006.
