Revoke Their Medical Licenses!
I have already talked about the US government lawyers who had written memos that authorized human rights abuses including the now notorious use of torture at the Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad. But what about the medical professionals who were part of such abuses? I believe they should be treated similarly,- take they licenses away for the rest of their lives. The message should be stark and clear: you've got to choose whether you want to be a doctor or a nurse, or you want to be a torturer; you just can't be both.
