Subject: RE: BS: CIA torturers (God Bless America)
Your buddies are outraged: the UK Parliament is now shifting, as MPs see they will not get away with shovelling this one under the carpet in the way the US might wish.
Malcolm Rifkind, Chair of the Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Select Committee, has asked the Senate to see the unredacted text. Keith Vaz, Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee, has called the current Home Secretary Theresa May to explain on Monday.
Jack Straw, the Foreign Minister (Secretary of State) at the time has already been interviewed by Scotland Yard, the Police National HQ(albeit on a neutral basis).
The points being made are exactly those I just made: we are better than that, even if you in the States are not. We may not be able to bring you to Justice, but the UK has no choice, must act, and is acting. Some of the UK's top politicians, with a status close to Statesman, are onto this one and will not let it go.
If the US is unable to explain, then the US had better prepare for some of its past Chiefs and tgheir subordinates to be hauled in front of the ICJ. What applies to Serbia can just as easily apply to GWBII
