Report Alleges Doctors Aided Torture of Terror Detainees

Did American doctors participate in the torture of enemy combatant detainees in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay? NPR's Alex Chadwick speaks with Dr. Gregg Bloche, a physician and professor of law at Georgetown University. Bloche is co-author of a recent article in The New England Journal of Medicine alleging American doctors may have participated in developing interrogation techniques that constituted torture.
