Case of Binyam Mohamed

UGH US and British Military Played S&M Torture Games-Attempts Now To Censor Actions

13 February 2009 at 9:07:58 AM

via Dungeon Diary - Since when it is okay to slice body parts? (Warning on that link for the squeamish).

The Miami Herald has more on the attempts in Britiain to hide information about their complicity with the US in acts of torture

Both an American military lawyer who's seen classified documents on the case and the head of a special parliamentary committee said Tuesday that the British government might have been complicit in the alleged mistreatment of Binyam Mohamed. The former British resident was seized in 2002 and held in several countries -- including Morocco, where he claims he was tortured -- before being transferred to Guantánamo in 2004.

Lt. Col. Yvonne Bradley, a U.S. military lawyer assigned to defend Mohamed, said that British intelligence agency ''MI5 was involved a long time ago'' in the interrogation of her client.

from the BBC- Lawyers are attempting to have the high courts release the torture evidence.

Last week, judges refused to order the disclosure of a summary of US reports on his detention, citing a threat to US intelligence-sharing with Britain.

The US denies that evidence against Mr Mohamed was obtained through torture.

Then why should they care if the papers are released? They would be exonerated and Mohamed proved false.

But there's the other, disburbing, part of all this. According to the Guardian, US defense officials are censoring information regarding Mohamed's torture.

The letter and its blanked-out attachment were disclosed as two high court judges yesterday agreed to reopen the court case in which Mohamed's lawyers, the Guardian and other media are seeking disclosure of evidence of alleged torture against him. Mohamed's lawyers are challenging the judges' gagging order, claiming that David Miliband, the foreign secretary, changed his evidence

No doubt the attempt to keep information away from Obama was, if it happened, as the Guardian said, to prevent Obama from criminal liability or political embarrassment. If that was so, then the president has no business intervening in the lawsuit. Again, why is Obama attempting to suppress torture evidence?
