Yemeni Printer Cartridges and the "War" on "Terror"

A great post here from Craig Murray, which not only explodes the myth (all that was ever likely to explode) of the deadly terrorist plot foiled by our vigilant security services, but demonstrates once again what a national treasure the guy is. I'd gone over to his blog in the hope of finding some comments on the most recent allegations of organised and systematic torture by British forces in Iraq, but nothing yet.

Personally, I feel the reports show that Britain can't adopt the "Abu Ghraib defence", that it was all a question of a few rotten apples in the barrel. This was a barrel specifically trained to be rotten right through, inspection of which by those responsible for purity of its fruit was consistently denied, and where reports of putrefaction were suppressed by the Minsitry of Defence. This rottenness came from the top: if Blair didn't order it he must have been aware of it (assuming he was bothering to turn up for work) and was happy to make use of it.

If the promulgation of the Iraq war in itself had not brought sufficient shame on our country, the readiness by our "liberating" forces to resort to torture has reduced our moral standing to somewhere below that of the Taleban.
