Prosecute Blair govt officials at ICC after torture report – ex-diplomat Craig Murray (VIDEO)

Craig Murray, the only British civil servant to express written concerns over UK complicity in torture and rendition, has told RT that former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw should face the International Criminal Court.
Murray was the British ambassador to Uzbekistan when he noted that MI6 operatives were receiving intelligence from the "torture chambers of the Uzbek regime," later expressing written concerns back to the Foreign Office and "to Jack Straw personally," only to be told that "in the War on Terror, the decision was that we would accept intelligence from torture."

"I subsequently became aware that in fact the Americans were also shipping people into Uzbekistan specifically in order for them to be tortured under the extraordinary rendition system," said Murray.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Torture is not about getting actionable intelligence; it is about getting confessions to use, in order to justify the US's current occupation of... well, fill in the blank: Iraq; Afghanistan; Libya; or Niger, or whatever country is coming up next on the US government's "to invade' list.

One German interrogator from World War II stood out from the rest; his name was Hanns Scharff, Wikipedia: Hanns Scharff and he never used violence or torture. In fact, he did the absolute converse, and was very kind to the men he interrogated, and took them on day passes for cultural events in the community.

He was so respected by the Allies that after the war, he was invited to teach his techniques to the American military.

Torture is uselessly barbaric, and those countries still using it, should be prosecuted to the fullest possible extent of international law; unfortunately, that will only happen...when pigs discover that they are aerodynamic.
