U.S. Citizen Requirement: Read the Guardian

Medical doctors take an oath to "do no harm."   That oath apparently gets flushed down the toilet when it comes to the CIA and torture.    As the Guardian reports:  The report of the Taskforce on Preserving Medical Professionalism in National Security Detention Centres concludes that after 9/11, health professionals working with the military and intelligence services "designed and participated in cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment and torture of detainees".

Check your local television station, check your local newspaper.   Do you see any local reporters questioning their members of Congress asking if they approve of doctors assisting with torture or if they approve of such a policy by the CIA?

Of course not.  

The Guardian asks questions that need to be asked and reports on stories that need to be reported.  To be an informed American citizen, it's essential to read the Guardian, a news organization headed by journalists, not state-supporting lapdogs.  

When journalism fails, bad things happen.
