UK world torture programme documents

UK torture programBlairwatch have a detailed background on the UK's torture programme and the Foreign Office's attempts to cover up and smear the work of former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray who exposed the Blair government's complicity in torture.

The following are the documents that the UK government want suppressed from Murray's book and that there is call to mirror:

"Britain's former ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray, has defied the Foreign Office by publishing on the internet documents providing evidence that the British Government knowingly received information extracted by torture in the "war on terror".

Mr Murray, who publicly raised the issue of the usefulness of information obtained under torture before he was forced to leave his job last year, submitted his forthcoming book, Murder in Samarkand, to the Foreign Office for clearance. But the Foreign Office demanded that he remove references to two sensitive government documents, which undermine official denials, to show that Britain had been aware it was receiving information obtained by the Uzbek authorities through torture. Rather than submit to the gagging order Mr Murray decided to publish the material on the internet.

The first document published by Mr Murray contains the text of several telegrams that he sent to London from 2002 to 2004, warning that the information being passed on by the Uzbek security services was torture-tainted, and challenging MI6 claims that the information was nonetheless "useful". The second document is the text of a Foreign Office legal opinion which argues that the use by intelligence services of information extracted through torture is not a violation of the UN Convention Against Torture."

Hey thank you Richard! And I've got your link up for a while now.

Blairwatch have done some incredible work with this and exposed yet another great axis-of-lies or another manufactured (knowing) deliberate apparatus of ignorance to just about keep their torture programme afloat.

It's just disgusting what this UK regime is doing, time and time and time again they get caught in the act. Iraq, dodgy dossiers, torture, cooking up intelligence. Their corruption and depravity is beyond question and they should be treated on that basis.

I loved this bit:

"If Karimov is on "our" side, then this war cannot be simply between the forces of
good and evil. It must be about more complex things..."


And still, knowingly, they seek to extract this dross under torture from a country that boils it's political enemies alive, then try to punish the whistleblower not following the torture policy.

And really, no one should be giving up more and more of their liberties to the Blair regime. It's so serious now, so dangerous I can't even find the words to desribe it.

This is interesting stuff - you know, over here in the US, some people think Bush is not sincere when he says he opposes torture. In fact, some of his strongest supporters maintain trust in him, because they assume he is not telling the truth.

This is an odd development - when one's political base, bases it's trust on your endless dishonesty about malevolent policy.

The Bush people, his support base, are influenced by Hollywood depictions of the efficacy of torture - They see no contradiction pressuring Turkey to stop torture, to get into the EU (which some Bush people secretly hope will hurt the EU), while getting the US in to the whole biz.

"This is an odd development - when one's political base, bases it's trust on your endless dishonesty about malevolent policy."

Excelllent point Gotham and it's a terrifying reality that things are now at that level of debasement.

And you make the point about Hollywood, and on TV they now try to sell torture as acceptable in various cop and secret agent shows.

The way I see the Turkey thing here in the UK, is to create a kind of false-xenophobia so as to manufacture a feeling of affection to the current EU of which there is enormous mistrust over.

As far as I am concerned the sooner the EU falls to pieces the better, and the same people within it saying how wonderful this left-leaning 'good cop' is, will be the same ones profiting from it's ruins.
