The Australian television show Lateline has an extensive interview with bioethicist Steven Miles [see his response to the letter by Michael Gelles] on issues arising in the “trial” of David Hicks. Dr. Miles knows perhaps more than anyone not in the government what goes on in US detention through his reading of tens of thousands of pages of government documents.
In the interview he demolishes the government claims. He also describes the roles of the Behavioral Science Consultation Teams (BSCTs) and the policies in support of the american Psychological association.
You can watch it here. [Actually, I tried the Windows Media Player and got a blank web page. But when I posted the URL directly into WMP, it worked fine.]
