Should doctors who participated in CIA-sanctioned medical torture after 9/11 have their medical licenses taken away?

  • Docters Who Participated

    I personally think that the doctors who participated in CIA sanctioned medical tortured after 9/11 should not have their medical licenses which their medical licenses should be taken away because they killed a lot of people due to 9/11. I personally think that the doctors who participated in CIA sanctioned medical tortured after 9/11 because it affected so many families.

  • Yes They Should

    I believe doctors who participated in CIA-sanctioned medical torture after 9/11 should have their medical licenses taken away. Geneva Conventions state that torture is unacceptable and that comes from an authority above and beyond all in the United States. It is not okay to follow orders when they break basic human dignities and doctors should uphold these principals more so than even the general public.

  • National Security Concerns are Exceptional

    Medical licenses have nothing to do with national security considerations, and the two issues should not be conflated against one another. Doctors who may have been performing medical torture were doing so under the auspices of the federal government, which should be taken into account when discussing this issue. Furthermore, revoking licenses would dampen the willingness of future doctors to cooperate with the federal government on national security issues.

  • Doctors who act with patriotism are heroes, not criminals

    When someone acts in accordance with a national agency they should not have to worry about how working for said agency negatively affecting their career. If the CIA was asking for these doctors to help protect American society, then these men are no more criminals than soldiers who are fighting for America in Afghanistan. They are providing defense to this country and attempting to help bring those who have harmed this country to justice. Instead of taking away their licenses they should be given a medal of some kind for their service.

  • No, not at all.

    I do not agree with torture at all. Even though it does work, torture sets a bad example and is as immoral as you can get. But these doctors were sanctioned by the CIA and who knows whether they really had a choice in the matter. Don't punish them until all facts are out.
