Throughout the history of medicine the doctor has been guided by one single principle: helping those in his or her care and, as a very minimum standard, not harming. Yet the physician has participated in torture from the Middle Ages till the present day. Particularly after the Second World War, the phenomenon of doctor participation in torture has compelled new medical ethical thinking. Doctor participation in torture is thus unethical and is now being made a criminal act expressed in legally binding international conventions.

     It is one of the proudest boasts of English jurisprudence that torture, in the strictest sense, has never had an official sanction in its courts. Like many other boasts it will not stand close scrutiny, for Peine Dure et Forte which will be spoken of hereafter, was frequently used and torture was often applied by other bodies than the Common Law courts, as in the court of Star Chamber and in the Privy Council.[1]
       Torture has hardly been absent from U.S. history. Both history and common sense indicate the folly of carving out loopholes in the international prohibition against torture and ill treatment. The experience of the last five years, when torture has received a level of concerted official support from the U.S. government not seen since the days of slavery, has made the danger of the RUDs fully manifest.[2]At various times in its history, the United States has allowed, encouraged, and even participated in torture.                 Torture is part of America's domestic past. It was integral to the institution of slavery and continued in the practices surrounding lynching. Local police forces used torture to elicit confessions through the first third of the twentieth century, and forty years ago wardens in southern prisons still tortured inmates.[3] Although there have been significant improvements, police brutality and the mistreatment of prisoners remain grave problems today.[4]
      At various times the United States has used torture as a counter-insurgency tactic abroad. U.S. troops tortured Philippine insurgents during the rebellion of 1899-1902.[5] In Vietnam, South Vietnamese troops tortured many suspected Viet Cong members, sometimes with the assistance and direct participation of U.S. personnel.[6] During the Cold War, the United States adopted a policy of "torture by proxy," supporting military regimes in Asia and Latin America that it knew practiced torture.[7]The CIA kept on its payroll some officials from these regimes who it knew practiced or ordered torture, in effect paying them for information extracted by torture.[8]We now know that the CIA instructed Latin American security officials in the use of certain torture methods, and even sent U.S. employees to supervise torture.[9]

       Today torture by the United States has become centralized, systematized, and rationalized as never before. What distinguishes current policy from the Cold War era is the direct authorization and close monitoring of torture by the highest officials of government; the creation of an international network of U.S. interrogation centers where detainees are brought to be tortured and often are held for long periods of time;

       After September 11, interrogation became a subject of intense discussion at the highest levels of the Administration.[10] The decision to use coercive methods appears to have been taken by early 2002.[11] A March 2002 Presidential finding signed by President Bush, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, and Attorney General John Ashcroft authorized CIA use of waterboarding, forced standing, hypothermia, and other harsh techniques.[12]

"no court, justice, or judge shall have jurisdiction to hearor consider any other action against the United States or its agents relatingto any aspect of the detention, transfer, treatment, trial or conditions ofconfinement of an alien"detained as a possibleenemy combatant. The only exception is thatdetainees may appeal the verdicts of combatant status review tribunals and ofmilitary commissions that impose a sentence ofdeath or a prison term lasting ten or more years.[13]

foreign detainees subjected to torture cannot ask any "court, justice, or judge" to stop their torture.[14]
    The Bush Administration has defended the policy of coercive interrogation with remarkable vigor. To review: It argued that certain categories of detainees are not legally entitled to humane treatment.[15] It redefined "torture" to exclude forms of treatment that most people would consider torture. [16] It asserted that the CIA is not legally barred from inflicting cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment on overseas aliens.[17] It tenaciously fought attempts by Congress to prohibit the CIA from such activity,[18] and, when Congress passed such legislation anyway, interpreted the statute to permit the existing coercive interrogation policy.[19] It asserted that no treaty or congressional statute can limit the President's choice of tactics, including torture, deemed necessary for fighting a war.[20] It fought to deny victims of coercive interrogation any access to the courts by arguing that habeas corpus rights did not extend to overseas aliens and that the Geneva Conventions did not confer judicially enforceable rights.[21] When courts rejected these arguments, it convinced Congress to enact them into law.[22] And it persuaded Congress to rewrite the War Crimes Act so that it is no longer clear whether coercive interrogation methods authorized for the CIA are federal war crimes.[23]

coercive interrogation techniques were authorized at the highest levels of the Administration, legally certified by attorneys in the White House and Department of Justice, conveyed to the Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency ("CIA"), and communicated down the ranks to prison guards and interrogators. These methods have been used by the U.S. military, the CIA, private contractors employed by the Pentagon, and foreign security services to which the United States has sent captives under a policy known as "extraordinary rendition."[1]
the torture and techniques used by US military army, CIA including: waterboarding (or near-drowning), sleep deprivation, forced standing, stress positions, hypothermia, slapping, light and noise bombardment, and extreme isolation.[2]the American Civil Liberties Union ("ACLU") reports, "Detainees have been beaten; forced into painful stress positions; threatened with death; sexually humiliated; subjected to racial and religious insults; stripped naked; hooded and blindfolded; exposed to extreme heat and cold; denied food and water; deprived of sleep; isolated for prolonged periods; subjected to mock drownings; and intimidated by dogs."[3]Several of the techniques-including sleep deprivation, forced standing, and waterboarding-are infamously associated with the Gestapo, Stalin's secret police, and the Inquisition.[4] Many detainees in U.S. custody have died as a result of their treatment.[5]

[1] There are many excellent accounts of these developments. Amnesty International ("Al") reports include AMNESTY INT'L, HUMAN DIGNITY DENIED: TORTURE AND ACCOUNTABILITY IN THE "WAR ON TERROR" (Oct. 27, 2004); AMNESTY INT'L, GUANTANAMO AND BEYOND: THE CONTINUING PURSUIT OF UNCHECKED EXECUTIVE POWER (May 13, 2005); Amnesty International's Supplementary Briefing to the UN Committee Against Torture, May 3, 2006.

A well-functioning legal regime prevents torture from occurring in the first place. Under such a regime, torture is inconceivable to those holding detainees, because the duty not to torture is internalized through education, training, monitoring, inspections, and publicly known, rigorously enforced penalties for those who inflict torture or fail to prevent it from occurring on their watch. These practices represent what might be called the first level of deterrence. Lying behind them is a second level of deterrence: procedures that allow prisoners to complain of ill treatment and courts to intercede on their behalf. A third level of deterrence resides in the power of the state's chief legislative, executive, and judicial officers, by recourse to clearly binding legal obligations, to take comprehensive corrective measures when the first two levels of deterrence have failed.

       The charters of the Nuremberg and Tokyo Tribunals, along with the 1949 Geneva Conventions, re-affirmed that torture is an international crime for which individuals can be punished.[1]The Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 announces simply, "No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment."[2]This language was deliberately crafted to block any resort to a narrow definition of torture as a means of justifying inhumane treatment."[3] It reappears verbatim in Article 7 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights ("ICCPR"), and forms the complete title of the Torture Convention.[4]
       Torture is prohibited in the European, African, and Inter-American human rights systems.[5] The ICCPR, Torture Convention, American Convention on Human Rights ("American Convention"), and European Convention on Human Rights ("European Convention") declare that the prohibition against torture may not be suspended, even in an emergency that threatens the life of the nation.[6] In 1975, the U.N. General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution condemning torture.[7] In the Pinochet decision of 1999, the British House of Lords held torture to be an inherently criminal act incapable of official legitimation.[8]In the same year, the Israeli Supreme Court barred security services from engaging in torture or any other form of cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment, even for the purpose of combating terrorism.[9]
       Torture continues to be prosecuted as a war crime and crime against humanity in the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda ("ICTR") and the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia ("ICTY").[10] Today the prohibition against torture is widely recognized as a jus cogens norm that cannot be overridden by treaty or international custom.[11] The prohibition against torture is one of the clearest and strongest obligations in international law.

       Many traditional due process protections are essential to the prevention of torture. These include the right against compulsory confessions or self- incriminating testimony, the right against arbitrary detention, the right to a fair trial, and the right to habeas corpus. Other familiar civil and political rights play a crucial role in preventing torture: the prohibition of slavery, the right to equality before the law, the right to a remedy for the violation of one's rights, and various rights designed to protect people from disenfranchisement and systematic disempowerment.
       To prevent torture, however, more is required. Police, military, and other public officials who exercise authority over confined individuals must be made "torture proof." They must be taught that torture and ill treatment are against the law and trained in methods of interrogation and confinement that preclude the use of such treatment. Superiors and independent inspectors must regularly monitor and enforce compliance with required procedures, and any individuals who allege they have been subjected to torture or ill treatment must be granted the right to prompt investigation of their complaints by impartial officials. These obligations are common-sense means of preventing abuse, and are included among the binding clauses of the Torture Convention.[12]Other measures could be added, such as a requirement that all military and criminal interrogations be videotaped.[13]
      Must allow international monitors to visit detention centers and interview detainees.
      States must enact, publicize; and execute criminal penalties for all individuals who inflict, order, aid, abet, or knowingly contribute to torture and ill treatment, and for all officials who allow their subordinates to inflict torture or ill treatment. The obligation to criminalize torture is the centerpiece of the Torture Convention.[14]
       Under principles of individual responsibility made famous at Nuremberg, perpetrators can no longer shift blame to the state, superiors, or unruly subordinates.[15]

       Victims of torture and ill treatment must be able to sue not only perpetrators but also public officials who fail to implement or abide by laws designed to prevent torture.

       U.S. reluctance to ratify human rights treaties is well documented. It has not ratified the American Convention;[1] the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights;[2] the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women;[3] or the Convention on the Rights of the Child.[4] It has ratified other human rights treaties only after considerable delay: the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide ("Genocide Convention") after forty years,[5] the ICCPR after twenty-six years,[6] and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination after twenty-five years.[7] Its ratification of the Torture Convention took a comparatively swift ten years.[8]
       The USA has taken careful and concerted actions to minimize its own obligations under such law.[9]
       The Senate has declared that the ICCPR, the Torture Convention, and CERD are not self-executing.[10]
       Congress has not passed any implementing legislation for the ICCPR or CERD, and it has incorporated the Torture Convention only to a limited extent.[11] The all-important practical consequence of the non-self-executing declarations is to block judges from applying human rights treaties in private causes of action.[12]With rare exceptions, U.S. judges do not refer to the ICCPR, the Torture Convention, or CERD.
it was not until December 2005 that Congress enacted a complete ban on "cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment.[13]
until the December 2005 passage of the McCain amendment, the Bush Administration asserted that the CIA had legal permission to inflict cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment on overseas aliens.[14]
One hundred and four countries have made this commitment.[15] By means of treaty ratification, they have given the International Criminal Court ("ICC") complementary jurisdiction over all their citizens, including high-ranking government officials up to the chief of state, who are credibly accused of genocide, war crimes, or crimes against humanity anywhere in the world.[16]Ratification of the Rome Statute also gives the ICC jurisdiction over any foreigner credibly accused of committing these crimes within the country's national territory.[17] The ICC may not take action if states of primary jurisdiction launch a bona fide criminal investigation into such crimes. But if states prove unwilling or unable to do so, the ICC is authorized to act as a court of last resort.[18]
