Binyam Mohamed: Victim Of US Torture Thanks To Britain

Binyam Mohamed

A UK resident freed from Guantanamo Bay has said he would not have faced torture or extraordinary rendition but for British involvement in his case.

US interrogators told him, “This is the British file and this is the American file,” Binyam Mohamed, 30, told the BBC in his first broadcast interview.

He said he wanted to see ex-President George Bush put on trial and, if there was evidence, former UK PM Tony Blair.

Yes, it would be just to see war criminals like Bush and Blair put on trial for their crimes, as Saddam Hussein was for his.

But it won’t happen, of course. Because it’s the powerful who decide our morality. Might makes right. The USA can posture about terrorism about being evil, can peddle it’s War On Terror even as it carries on it’s own series of terrorist bombings.

Blair and now Brown lecture us about freedom, about peace at the same time as having the blood of over one million Iraqis on their hands.

And the fact that the UK helped the USA kidnap and torture scores of innocent people, some of them children, doesn’t even warrant a mention on our TV news, let alone a public inquiry.

We have a government of war criminals. Never forget that.

Obama’s Terror Attack Kills Another 24 Pakistanis, Gordon Brown Approves

Obama Murders More Pakistanis

Missiles fired by an unmanned US drone have killed at least 24 people in Pakistan’s Kurram tribal region near the Afghan border, officials have said.

Local officials said the dead were local Taleban and that the toll may rise. Thirty others were injured.

Correspondents say this is the fifth drone attack on Pakistani territory since Barack Obama became US president.

Pakistan is critical of the tactic because, it says, civilians are often killed, fuelling support for militants.

Remember: the USA is not in a state of war with Pakistan.

Remember: these dead are only alleged to be Taleban. There isn’t a shred of proof. The only thing we know for sure is that 24 Pakistanis were murdered and thirty more injured. And the USA notoriously has a recent history of manufacturing evidence to back up its crimes. (Also see here and here and here.)

So, this is basically a terrorist attack by the USA on Pakistan. People who were not enemy soldiers in a state of war were killed with no trial, no charges, no nothing.

Yet, Gordon Brown remains silent. No other world leaders comment.

Apparently, some terrorism is more okay than other terrorism.

If you think I’m foaming at the mouth here, just ask yourself, honestly – what would the news be saying if any other country but the USA was launching missile attacks, killing people every week? If China was doing that to Tibet? Or Iran on Israel?
