Great Britain: No Trust For US Torture Representations

NOTE: The launch of Oxdown Gazette will be slightly delayed. We’ve found a couple of "ghosts in the code." We’ll post an update soon as we can.


The UK issued a blunt warning regarding US torture, centering around waterboarding and other "enhanced interrogation techniques." Following Canada’s earlier lead, this will have wide-ranging implications, including:

A change in approach would have implications for the extradition of prisoners to the US, particularly in terror cases, as a United Nations convention bars the return of individuals to states where they are at risk of being tortured.

This is the level to which we have sunk.

After years of the Cheney/Addington torture agenda, and marginalizing anyone who stood up for the rule of law, we have landed on the non-extradition list. Shameful.
