On August 15, I reported that the New York Office of Professional Discipline (NYOP) had rejected a complaint against BSCT psychologist Major John Leso for his participation in the planning and implementation of torture at Guantanamo. The rejection used specious arguments to deny that NYOP had any jurisdiction over the Leso case. Today, the Center for Justice and Accountability (CJA) issued a press release in answer to the NYOP decision, and has also asked the American Psychological Association “to expel Dr. Leso from its association and to recommend revocation of his license.”

Coalition for an Ethical Psychology has put out a press release charging the American Psychological Association with complicity in the supporting military and CIA psychologists in the development and implementation of the U.S. torture program. While the APA has released a letter ostensibly in support of a licensing complaint against CIA contractor-interrogator-torturer James Mitchell, a look at the letter itself and the context surrounding it presents a different story.
