Gitmo prisoners babbling on psych drugs?

Guantanamo Bay prisoners were interrogated while being dosed up on 'mind altering drugs', according to a secret Pentagon report released under Freedom of Information laws.

The two-year probe by the Pentagon's inspector general into the use of anti-psychotic medication during interrogations revealed detainees inside the U.S. military's facility in Cuba were forcibly injected with powerful sedatives used in psychiatric hospitals.

'Certain detainees, diagnosed as having serious mental health conditions being treated with psychoactive medications on a continuing basis, were interrogated,' the inspector general concludes in the report....
Prisoners were rarely told what drugs they were being given or for what purpose it was being administered, the report found.

The revelations have raised questions about whether the medication could have resulted in prisoners making falsely incriminating statements.

Defending the drugging of inmates, the former commander of the Joint Medical Group at Guantanamo said in the report that 'some detainees were involuntarily medicated to help control serious mental illnesses.'

The inspector general added that an ethics committee had approved the policy.
