psychologists were enlisted to help rise some-more aggressive
inquire methods, including snarling dogs, forced nakedness and
prolonged durations of standing, against terrorism suspects, according
to a Senate investigation.


One of the two military psychologists who combined the “enhanced”
inquire techniques used by the CIA in the years after 9/11
testified progressing this year that CIA officials called them
“pussies” when they wanted to stop waterboarding detainees, the
New York Times reported on

The two psychologists, Drs. John Bruce Jessen
and James Mitchell, are now being sued by the American
Civil Liberties Union on interest of some of the former

“‘You guys have lost your spine.’ we consider the word that was
actually used is that you guys are pussies. There was going to be
another attack in America and the blood of passed civilians are
going to be on your hands,” Mitchell pronounced CIA officials told him
and Jessen when they asked to stop waterboarding detainees.

Thirteen of the
inquire techniques grown by the two psychologists were
approved by
the Justice Department in 2002 and 2005.

In 2014,
the Senate Intelligence Commitee expelled a report criticizing
the inquire program as “brutal” and “deeply

techniques constituted torture.

Jessen pronounced in the deposition that, when they did, “[CIA
officials] kept revelation me every day a nuclear explosve was
going to be exploded in the United States and that since we had
told them to stop, we had lost my haughtiness and it was going to be my
error if we didn’t continue.” 

Despite devising and training others to lift out the
inquire techniques, and their business getting paid $81
million to do so, Jessen and Mitchell also both explain they
were not the architects of the program, the Times said.

The hearing is scheduled to start on Sept. 5.
