The USA has an unfair amount of responsibility, and we are damned if we do....and damned if we don't. Just because we can probably handle it all, doesn't mean we should. We are not in a position where we are expected to help out, and the world can take pot shots at how/when/where we help.
To apply this to the APA.....what if psychs went into the camps and evaluated for proper treatment? I know certain groups do that now, but I'm not sure what kind of training the people receive. THAT is something we can use our training for.
Genocide still happens today: Darfur, the Congo, Rawanda, etc. I'm glad the APA has stepped up and postured that they don't agree, but until they do something meaningful, I don't really seeing them be effective.

Yup. I don't mind some OT, since much of this still ties in with the original topic of torture, our role as psychs, etc.
