From Guantanamo to Abu Ghraib, the systematic abuse of prisoners by the United States military has constituted a shocking and widespread component of the wars waged in Iraq and Afghanistan. On February 16, Joshua E.S. Phillips, author of None of Us Were Like This Before: American Soldiers and Torture, will speak on the subject of torture with Darius Rejali, professor and chair of political science at Reed College and a nationally recognized expert on government torture and interrogation.
The lecture, sponsored by the David Robinson Memorial Fund for Human Rights and Reed’s political science department, is free and open to the public.
