Yale Medical School under the auspices of medical research conducting controversial research on
"The new facility, U.S. SOCOM Center of Excellence for Operational Neuroscience, would be part of the Yale School of Medicine.
Speaking to Democracy Now!, Michael Siegel, Yale alumnus and professor of community health sciences at Boston University School of Public Health, stated:
Yale has now crossed a line. Using the practice of medicine and medical research to help design advanced interrogation techniques, or even just regular civilian intelligence gathering and interviewing techniques, is not an appropriate use of medicine. The practice of medicine was designed to improve people’s health. And the school of medicine should not be taken part in either training or research that is primarily designed to enhance military objectives."
"Morgan’s research and, by extension, this proposed center target people of color — brown people exclusively. According to a Yale Herald article, Morgan listed 'Moroccans, Columbians, Nepalese, Ecuadorians and others.' Is there an assumption in Morgan’s desire to use more ‘authentic,’ brown interviewees as test subjects, that brown people lie differently from whites — and even more insidiously, that all brown people must belong to the same 'category' of liar?"

I like this comment from Subversable:
Stanford and MIT will give you just as good an education, but they will not initiate you into the active ranks of the ruling class.
Yale is where the children of aristocrats can join the Skull and Bones, a place where they are required to ritually desecrate Geranimo's skull, ensuring a comfort level with the injustice and evil that form the basis of their power. It is where the scions of power rub elbows with each other and with their more talented and loyal servants in preparation for running the Empire.
The Interrogation Center is the sort of thing that fifteen years ago would have been done at the School of the Americas (or whatever whitewash name it has this week) but times change. The Empire is getting meaner, and someone decided that it is time to teach the young blue bloods how to attach the electrodes. The abstracted cruelty they learn as Bonesmen is no longer considered sufficient.
