CIA paid two ex-military psychologists $81 million to help design and run torture program

Included in the hideous details of the executive summary version of the torture report released Tuesday is the news that the company founded by two former military psychologists who urged waterboarding and other coercive methods against suspects secretly imprisoned by the CIA and Department of Defense was paid $81 million for work with the agency's interrogation program from 2005 until 2009.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United States War Crimes Act of 1996, a federal statute set forth at 18 U.S.C. § 2441, makes it a federal crime for any U.S. national, whether military or civilian, to violate the Geneva Convention by engaging in murder, torture, or inhuman treatment.

The statute applies not only to those who carry out the acts, but also to those who ORDER IT, know about it, or fail to take steps to stop it. The statute applies to everyone, no matter how high and mighty.

18 U.S.C. § 2441 has no statute of limitations, which means that a war crimes complaint can be filed at any time.The penalty may be life imprisonment or — if a single prisoner dies due to torture — death.
