    More evidence of British complicity in torture

    Craig Murray's blog informs us about an article in the Scotsman on "waterboarding":

    FORCING a prisoner's head under water until they believe they are drowning does not necessarily constitute torture or abusive treatment, the Foreign Office has said.

    The equivocal statement has fuelled suspicions that Britain is turning a blind eye to practices by its allies that many international lawyers believe are illegal.

    Holding mock executions is banned in international law, yet simulated drowning is specifically intended to persuade subjects that they are about to die.

    It's a disgrace that our leaders don't believe this is torture. They should be hauled in front of the ICC.
