I would like to express my thanks to Kathleen Hendrix for her excellent article on "The Torture Network" (June 21). As immediate past chair of the American Psychological Assn.'s Committee on International Relations, I have been concerned about the paucity of information available about the victims of torture who live among us and whom we re-traumatize through our lack of sensitivity to the horrors they suffered. To provide such information, several of the members of the committee and I are completing a book on psychology and torture.

All the patients are torture victims, and appliances and white coats are often grim reminders of torturers' equipment and the doctors who supervised the torture. The atmosphere at the center is calm and friendly as staff listen to the anguished outpourings of the victims, share their torment and offer help.

Torture is a thriving business. Perhaps not a growth industry but certainly not on the wane, according to the organizations that monitor and combat it. Amnesty International reports increasingly scientific methods of torture are practiced in at least 98 countries as unacknowledged government policy--primarily for the purpose of discouraging dissent. Torture victims are legion, and many survivors, it turns out, are living within the large immigrant populations of Southern California.

Birzeit University's class of 2001 seems so full of promise as the young men and women, in long black gowns and mortarboards, parade onstage to receive their diplomas. Their parents, bursting with pride, wave from the audience, weep with joy and crane to snap photographs of the momentous event. Outside the walls of the Palestinian university campus, a devastating Israeli siege has West Bank villages in a vise-like grip.
