Medical complicity in torture at Guantánamo Bay.

In the April editorial, the PLoS Medicine Editors argue that the publication of new evidence of the complicity of medical personnel in torture at Guantánamo Bay (GTMO) should bolster calls for further investigation into the role of medical staff at the prison. The new evidence is presented in research by Vincent Iacopino and Stephen Xenakis, in which the review of case records and legal documents of nine individuals imprisoned at Guantánamo Bay suggest that medical personnel assigned to the Department of Defense neglected to act on and/or concealed medical evidence of torture.
