Irene Landsman’s Letter to the Editor on Torture

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

The following is Irene Landsman’s Letter to the Editor which was sent to The New York Times but has not been published as yet.

American Psychological Association President Nadine Kaslow (Letters, December 13) is shocked and dismayed that two psychologists were named in the Senate torture report. Relieved not to have been mentioned itself, the APA focuses on two “bad apples” in a spin designed to deflect attention from its own longstanding, well-documented complicity in the worst excess of the Bush-era war on terror.

Letter by Joseph Schachter to the New York Times

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

If the rape of a college student is a crime, why doesn’t the victim report the crime to the police rather than to the college or university?  College administrators, like upper level armed forces officers, have a vested interest in how sexual crimes are dealt with.
