Psychologists Behind CIA 'Enhanced Interrogation' Program Settle Detainees' Lawsuit

Psychologist behind 'advanced interrogation lawsuitsTwo psychologists who were paid more than $80 million by the CIA to develop "enhanced interrogation" techniques — which others have called torture — have settled a lawsuit brought by men who were detained.

The list of brutal methods devised by Bruce Jessen and James Mitchell for use by the U.S. included waterboarding; the tactics were meant to condition detainees into a state of helplessness. Mitchell has said he was told by U.S. officials that the idea was to "walk right up to the edge of the law."

The case had been set to go before a jury on Sept. 5. Due to their status as contractors rather than government employees, the lawsuit had targeted Jessen and Mitchell as private citizens.

Based in Spokane, Wash., the two psychologists were sued by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of three former prisoners — including one detainee who died of extreme cold in a secret CIA prison.
