Editorial Reviews

Psychologists, nurses, physicians, anthropologists are among the many professions assisting the U.S. military during the war on terror. Other films have covered the controversy around the use of torture and coercion in these sites. This film captures the unique perspective of psychologists in these complicated settings and the heated debate about their roles as consultants to the interrogators.

Where is the line in the sand for psychologists working in U.S. national security detention centers?

Should psychologists help the U.S. military interrogate national security detainees?

"Interrogate This" presents a troubling, spirited and deeply human story illustrating the complexities encountered when national security, terrorism, psychology, politics, and ethics collide.

Rather than one particular slant on the ethics of interrogation or treatment of detainees in U.S. national security detention centers, the film offers a variety of perspectives. Thoughtful positions from individuals closest to the issues include:
*Military psychologists who served at Guantanamo and elsewhere;
* A career military intelligence officer;
*Lawyers representing detainees and human rights organizations;
*Friends and family of one particular detainee;
*Psychologists/activists promoting a moratorium on continued involvement in detention centers where detainees lack human rights; and
*Representatives from the world's largest professional organization for psychologists-the American Psychological Association (APA)

Over the past several years, members of the APA have gone head to head debating the ethical implications of consultation to interrogations of suspected terrorists in detention centers around the globe.

National security experts claim that there is a broad spectrum of terrorist groups and organizations, each with a different psychology, motivation and decision making structure.

Similarly, there is a broad spectrum of American psychologists, each with a different perspective, rationale and problem solving approach when the discussion centers on ethics and interrogations of national security detainees in U.S. custody.

"Interrogate This" puts 13 such individuals in the hot seat and asks the question: Can reasonable people sometimes differ when it comes to drawing a line in the sand for psychologists helping with these interrogations?
