There are some hard hearted morons in this place
I cannot believe what I am reading in the comments section of this article in The Times about Binyam Mohamed’s alleged torture, let’s make it clear and simple:
- Whatever information was gleaned was not sufficient to lead to ANY charges
- Torture is a notoriously poor tool for extracting genuine information, most victims will tell their inquisitors what they want to hear, just to escape the pain.
- If he was a great international threat, would the Americans have released him?
- Do these people feel no shame that the UK allegedly colluded with these medieval methods?
- Have we not got sufficient surveillance methods, data capture tools, electronic intelligence gathering, and human intelligence to form a case?
- Don’t we believe in the rule of law?
- There have been many miscarriages of justice since this War Against Terror began, you wouldn’t want to be one of the mistakes.
- The risk of being blown apart by a terrorist bomb in the UK are far less than those for being killed by a car when you cross the road.
- Mohamed’s allegations need to be viewed seriously and a full and proper criminal examination of MI5′s involvement needs to take place NOW.
- The Foreign Secretary and South Shields MP David Miliband needs to be more frank, open, and forthcoming with the House of Commons over Britain’s involvement with the whole of the rendition process, the selection of suspects, the sharing of information, and the operation of the US bases at Diego Garcia and Guantanamo.
