Important Stories Falling Through the Cracks

While I have been otherwise busy, I haven't had time to comment upon or publicize some very important developments in the struggle against psychologist involvement in U.S. abusive interrogations, as well as other stories. Luckily, we have Stephen Soldz over at Psyche, Science, and Society, who seems to keep on top of the most pressing issues.

See his story on how the CIA tries to stop torture investigations by investigating investigators, which follows up on a New York Times article from last week. (Chris Floyd also had a great essay on this over at Empire Burlesque, one of the best-written blogs on the planet.)

Soldz also covers the news on the "astounding" numbers of detainees accumulating at brutal U.S. detention centers in Iraq (over 25,000 now). Meanwhile, on a more parochial level, in that it concerns the struggle to change interrogation policy within the American Psychological Association, see his story on the college psychology departments condemning APA's position, or his coverage of the recent article critical of APA at Inside Higher Ed.

If you haven't already, making S. Soldz or C. Floyd regular stops on your web browsing circuit is highly recommended.
