To Do No Harm

To Do No Harm




Days after Physicians for Human Rights issued a report on doctors aiding torture, an Air Force doctor has been awarded the Air Medal "for his meritorious
service on delicate assignments
providing medical care to enemy detainees" - that is, on rendition
flights, likely ending in torture. Col. (Dr.) James Walter of
Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala. was the "senior
detainee movement flight surgeon" on flights into 15 countries.

Walter said winning the medal was "kind of neat."
