“With Regret and with Certainty”

Craig Murray, former ambassador to Uzbekistan, claims that the US and the UK “knowingly accept evidence obtained under torture”:
”I saw evidence of scores of cases of torture in Uzbekistan: people boiled to death, photos of serious injuries, mutilation of genitals, rape of individuals in front of their relatives... until they would sign a confession." When he tried to share his concern with British diplomats, he was told that Foreign Minister Jack Straw "discussed the issue with the head of MI6 and reached the conclusion that we should continue to receive intelligence material obtained from confessions under torture and that this would not contravene the U.N. Convention against Torture.
Boiled? Mutilated? Raped?

And soon, I’m sure, some will ask the inevitable question: Why does Craig Murray hate Freedom®?

Yeah, I heard Mr. Murray on DN a while back. That sort of thing, and my fellow citizen's blissful ignorance of it fuels my blogging rage.

Neat blog, stay groovy
