    British judge: "America's idea of torture does not coincide with that of other civilised nations"

    Yesterday, we reported on the case of the 3 British residents, who have been held captive at America's Guantanamo torture chamber, and how a British judge ruled that a high court order should be sought requiring Jack Straw to intevene in their cases. Today, the Guardian has picked up on this report:

    The judge said: "America's idea of what is torture is not the same as ours and does not appear to coincide with that of most civilised nations." He made his comments, he said, after learning of the UN report that said Guantánamo should be shut down without delay because torture was still being carried out there. ...... But in one of the strongest remarks yet by a British cabinet minister, Peter Hain said last night that the government believed the camp should be shut. Asked on the BBC's Question Time programme whether Tony Blair supported that view he said "I think so, yes".

    "I think so, yes"?! Doesn't Peter Hain know what his boss believes?

    I think they change their minds depending on the circumstances Jez.
