Tony Blair knew of secret policy on terror interrogations

From The Guardian:

Tony Blair was aware of the ­existence of a secret interrogation policy which ­effectively led to British citizens, and others, being ­tortured during ­counter-terrorism investigations, the Guardian can reveal.

The policy, devised in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks, offered ­guidance to MI5 and MI6 officers ­questioning detainees in Afghanistan who they knew were being mistreated by the US military.

British intelligence officers were given written instructions that they could not "be seen to condone" torture and that they must not "engage in any activity yourself that involves inhumane or degrading treatment of prisoners".

But they were also told they were not under any obligation to intervene to prevent detainees from being mistreated.

"Given that they are not within our ­custody or control, the law does not require you to intervene to prevent this," the policy said.

The policy almost certainly breaches international human rights law, according to Philippe Sands QC, one of the world's leading experts in the field, because it takes no account of Britain's obligations to avoid complicity in torture under the UN convention against torture. Despite this, the secret policy went on to underpin British intelligence's ­relationships with a number of foreign intelligence agencies which had become the UK's allies in the "war against terror".

The policy was set out in written instructions sent to MI5 and MI6 officers in January 2002, which told them they might consider complaining to US officials about the mistreatment of detainees "if circumstances allow".


I was hoping...

That people would think to post this when they see an article citing torture, and the need for accountability...

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

Wow, what a great list Jon!

This is as thorough as thorough could be around torture.

How would you make the case around torture and 9/11 truth? I've made it around creating false confessions and intimidation, and pointing out how much of the 9/11 Commission Report was based on torture-based confession.

“Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught in falsehoods school. And the one man that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and fool.” –Plato

"We must speak the truth about terror." --George W. Bush


"Made up stories" to get people to stop torturing him. That means his testimony regarding anything having to do with 9/11 is unreliable. The 9/11 Report is heavily based on his tortured confessions. Therefore, the 9/11 Report is an unreliable document (for 1000 more reasons than that, but you asked).

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?
