Psychologist/Former U.S. Army colonel charged with influencing beatings, rape threats and other torture at GITMO

According to his own statements, Louisiana psychologist and retired U.S. Army colonel Dr. Larry C. James played an influential role in both the policy and day-to-day operations of interrogations and detention at the prison camps. Publicly-available information shows that while Dr. James was at Guantanamo, abuse in interrogations was widespread, and cruel and inhuman treatment was official policy. Allegations of abuse during Dr. James’s January to May 2003 deployment include beatings, religious and sexual humiliation, rape threats and painful body positions.
