A new report by the watchdog group Physicians for Human Rights alleges Monday that the Bush Administration experimented on terrorism suspects during their enhanced interrogation program put in force starting in 2002.
The group admits they have no "smoking gun." But their review, which examined Bush-era documentation, asserted that the administration violated laws set up in the wake of the Holocaust to prevent medical testing on prisoners of war.
The report states that, "Medical personnel were required to monitor all waterboarding practices and collect detailed medical information that was used to design, develop and deploy subsequent waterboarding procedures." Notes the Associated Press:
