Kelly made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Saturday after a report revealed on Friday that some of America’s leading psychologists took part in and covered up the CIA’s torture techniques during the administration of President George W. Bush.
The study conducted by a former US attorney, published by the New York Times on Friday, stated that a large number of American psychologists could be charged over their involvement in the CIA torture program after the September 11, 2001 attacks.
“Obviously, these are the individuals who are going to be implicated,” Kelly said, adding that perhaps they will be fired “to clean up the image, but the corruption of the American medical staff goes back a long time.”
“Getting these doctors to take money to do these things and break their oath is probably not as difficult as you’d think,” he stated.
“They have been doing this for so long in collusion with the government and the military,” Kelly pointed out.
The analyst went on to say that medical professionals act like a mafia and are using “this pseudo science of psychology and the mental institutions to control people and to stifle dissent.”
