Medical group calls CIA’s use of rectal rehydration ‘sexual assault’

The CIA’s claim that there was medical need to rectally feed detainees in the aftermath of 9/11 came under withering criticism Wednesday as “sexual assault masquerading as medical treatment.”

New York-based Physicians for Human Rights, taking aim at the evident complicity of health professionals in procedures inflicted upon at least five terror suspects in CIA custody, said the antiquated practice of rectal rehydration or feeding amounted to wilful torture.

“Contrary to the CIA’s assertions, there is no clinical indication to use rectal rehydration and feeding over oral or intravenous administration of fluids and nutrients,” said Dr. Vincent Iacopino, PHR’s senior medical adviser.
