MI5 accused of colluding in torture of terrorist suspects


www.guardian.co.uk

Officers of the Security Service, MI5, are being accused of "outsourcing" the torture of British citizens to a notorious Pakistani intelligence agency in an attempt to obtain information about terrorist plots and to secure convictions against al-Qaida suspects.

A number of British terrorism suspects who have been arrested in Pakistan at the request of UK authorities say their interrogation by Security Service officers, shortly after brutal torture at the hands of agents of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI), has convinced them that MI5 colluded in the mistreatment.

Those men have given detailed accounts of their alleged ordeals at the hands of the ISI over the last four years. Some of them appear to have been taken to the same secret interrogation centre in Rawalpindi, where they say they were repeatedly tortured before being questioned by MI5.

This has the stink of blairs hypocrisy all over it - taking a leaf from his mate dubya's book, he appears to have gone a step further and "outsourced" the torture to keep british hands "clean"

Sorry, but that just doesn't wash - if he knew that ISI had a reputation for brutality (and he must have done, he's not stupid), then he was complicit in the torture, as were the MI5 officers who authorised it.

In the UK we are now seeing blairs policy of being shrubs lapdog backfiring.

Bring them both up on charges of war crimes, and charge blair with violating the EU Human Rights Act as well as breaking the geneva convention.

It is no surprise to me . The complicit and compliant US ass lickers that are the UK , they do nothing but try to appear to the world as an altruistic benign liberal society but are no more than international thugs . I hope each and every one of these scum MI5 involved does jail time.
