    ... APA should have left it alone and not changed it to conform to more recent (and wrong!) military and/or CIA standards.  Torture by any other name is still torture, and as such it is illegal, unconstitutional, violates US law, violates treaties, and the Geneva Conventions..., and every time media or We The People remain silent about the topic, it signals approval and how meekly we will go along with any old illegal crap our government dishes out.  And we still need our rights and habeas corpus back.

    After protesting it for a decade, APA changed that aspect of the ethics code last year.
