Steven Miles talked about his book Oath Betrayed: Torture, Medical Complicity, and the War on Terror, published by Random House. Dr. Miles talked about abuses of prisoners in prison camps located in Abu Ghraib, Guatanamo, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Iraq which included beatings, thermal and chemical burns, asphyxiation, and sexual humiliation of POWs. Drawing on documents gathered from Freedom of Information requests, Dr. Miles said that clinicians did not report abuses and falsified documents that would have shown evidence of POW mistreatment. Dr. Miles argued for more investigations into interrogation practices and suggested that prison clinicians should be held accountable to Geneva Convention requirements that POWs be treated humanely. He also responded to questions from the audience. close
