Holocaust Cited in Trial for Psychologists Who Developed 9/11 Interrogation Techniques

Military psychologists James Mitchell and John Bruce Jessen are two men who helped the CIA devise enhanced interrogation techniques for suspects detained after the September 11 terror attacks. Now, years later, the psychologists are in court facing lawsuits from two of those detainees who want them held accountable.

The psychologists “aided and abetted the torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment” their clients endured, according to the plaintiffs’ lawyers.
