Seems to me that the APA blew it.
This may be a soft example of unintended consequences, with the APA now a victim of sorts, of the Bush Admin's efforts to "protect" us as they stripped away our very own constitutional rights.

TY JL for posting Noted. This just about says it in a nut shell. “With Leso, the evidence of his participation is so explicit and so incontrovertible, the APA had to go to great lengths to dismiss it,” said Steven Reisner, a New York clinical psychologist who unsuccessfully ran for the APA presidency last year. “The precedent is that APA is not going to hold any psychologist accountable in any circumstance.” BTW no one on Care2 is talking about the Southern Link of the Keystone XL starting up on Jan 22, 2014 after the President signed off on it. SAD

Completely agree with Everything that Sherri said about this and about the Keystone pipeline - we're seeing the US deteriorate ethically and physically, and it's now perpetuating world climate change! This isn't my country any more!

Just what we needed. Another setback to mental health treatment in the United States. Who can treat if no practitioners can be trusted? lee e, it hasn't been my country any more for some time. I'm not sure for how long as it was kind of gradual. Soon after 9/11/2001 was when I noticed that it had already been going on for some time. Zee, I know I am far from the first person to bring up disrespect, but I do bring it up. Please don't.
