"After moving slower than Congress, which released a report on this stuff in December courtesy of the Senate Intelligence Committee, we conducted an internal investigation and learned some of our representatives had conspired with people in the George W. Bush Administration, Pentagon, and CIA to advance torture," said Nadine Kaslow, who sat on the APA Council of Representatives.

Kaslow added, "There was nothing else for us to do, except finally take this rather depressing issue seriously. We lost all the plausible deniability we had been hiding behind for over a decade. We totally violated international law and helped to torture some folks."
Former Vice President Dick Cheney called the psychologists who helped America torture people "heroes," and demanded they all receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
