Our participation in the US torture programme was contrary to British values and did nothing to make us safer. If Britain does not shore up its defences quickly, it runs the real risks of being once more dragged into American excesses.

In A Post-Truth Society, Does It Matter That The Trump Dossier Is Unverified?

Emma Rosen | Posted 24.01.2017 | UK Politics
Emma Rosen

Buzzfeed's decision flies in the face of journalistic ethics, standards and tradition and is against everything that many in the industry stand for. This explains the mass denouncement of the editorial choice over the unsubstantiated publication by virtually every major news organisation. In practically any other circumstances they would be right to do so.

General Petraeus And General Inequality

Jake Warren | Posted 29.06.2015 | UK
Jake Warren

Fyodor Dostoevsky author of 'Crime and Punishment' is arguably one of the most celebrated writers throughout history. In his memoirs of his account of 4 years imprisoned in a Siberian gulag he wrote of being haunted by an insoluble problem, the inequality of punishment for one and the same crime. Those words were put to paper in 1862 and 153 years later his assertion could not be truer of America today, especially with the handling of General David Petraeus.

Torture Is Torture - Regardless of Who Does It

James Snell | Posted 14.02.2015 | UK
James Snell

Some of these horrors make agonising reading - but it is incorrect to say that they defy description. In the cold, expressionless language of the Senate report, even blunt, mechanical phrases can contain the key to understanding a world of pain. 'Rectal feeding' is one. 'Stress position' is another. Through reams of inert prose, an appalling picture of abuse is built up and solidified.

The More Effective Torture Is, the More Important It Is That It Should Be Banned

Matthew Scott | Posted 15.02.2015 | UK
Matthew Scott

If torture worked, the need to criminalise it would be even more imperative than if it were ineffective because the temptation to use it would then be even greater. If torture did not work there would be no need to use it. It was largely because the CIA believed, or persuaded itself, that it did work that it became such a widespread practice.

Kenyan Death-Squads: A Legacy of the War on Terror

It came as little surprise that the official inquiry into the circumstances that led to the Woolwich attack paid scant attention to the role UK intelligence played in the abuse of Michael Adebolajo in Kenya. In his court appearance last December Michael Adebolajo himself did not mention whether or not the incident had an impact on his own thinking in the run-up to Woolwich.

The CIA Torture Scandal

Sajjad Karim MEP

The release of this report teaches us an important lesson; that it is easy for the rule of law and our own civility to be lost in a climate of fear, where pressing concerns are focused on finding ways to protect ourselves from dangerous and evil forces like Al Qaeda or ISIS. Behaviour that compromises such principles, however, will invariably fail to keep us safe.

An in-depth and open inquiry about the intelligence community's actions during the 'war on terror' is well overdue. For once, actually following the Americans' recent example would be a good place to start.
