This chapter first reviews existing knowledge about the involvement of psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals in harsh, post-9/11 interrogation. It then turns to the ethics of interrogation practice. It considers the position maintained by the military that, doctors who counsel interrogators do not act as health professionals and thus are not bound by the Hippocratic obligation to avoid harm. It argues that the most disturbing thing about the emergence of national security interrogation as a new ‘area of practice’ is that occurred behind the veil of national security.
