Craig Murray at the Berlin Freedom of Expression Forum

Whenever I read or hear anything by Craig Murray, former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan fired by Blair for criticizing our use of intellligence gained from Uzbek torture - not just because it was immoral, but because it was useless fake information (the kind you might well come out with as you were being boiled alive, or having your children mutilated in front of you) - whenever I encounter him I feel proud to be British and to share a nationality with him.

Here he is giving a speech at the Berlin Institute of Cultural Diplomacy's Freedom of Expression Forum, and being interviewed. Strangely, both videos vanished from the forum's site together, without explanation, and were replaced later (the speech now has a discontinuity at 42:50 which a ICD spokesperson blames on technical problems. Uh-huh. Ironic, eh?
