Posted on 02/25/2008 5:47:18 PM PST by MadJack
Hundreds of Iraqis and Afghans captured by British and American special forces were rendered to prisons where they faced torture, a former SAS soldier said yesterday. Ben Griffin said individuals detained by SAS troops in a joint UK-US special forces taskforce had ended up in interrogation centres in Iraq, including the notorious Abu Ghraib prison, and in Afghanistan, as well as Guantánamo Bay. (BREAK) He said he had not himself witnessed torture or mistreatment. But he added: "I have no doubt in my mind that non-combatants I personally detained were handed over to the Americans and subsequently tortured."

This guy’s a regular clown. Guarantee, he wouldn’t say that if he really did believe Americans were ready to snatch the bad guys up and torture them. After all, he’d be first on the list.
Well, hey... as long as there is “no doubt” in his mind, that’s ok with me. I mean, even if he lacks a shred of evidence, it’t the seriousness of the charge that is most important. /major s
Wonder what the circumstances of his leaving the SAS were.
D’ya think Ben Griffin needs some attention?
I wish we did torture.
So it was all your fault.
>>This guys a regular clown. Guarantee, he wouldnt say that if he really did believe Americans were ready to snatch the bad guys up and torture them. After all, hed be first on the list.<<
Agreed, Plus this is from the GUARDIAN, the anti American rag in the UK which called us stupid after voting for W in 04, and everyone of their articles lean extremely to the left.
This must be the Brit version of one of Obama’s “soldier” pals .
“He said he had not himself witnessed torture or mistreatment.”
This is nothing. I would have the same amount of credibility if I said I was confident this guy makes love to sheep even though I have never witnessed it.
Remember this is “seared into his memory.” Oh, that was Kerry in Cambodia.
Sounds like this Limey has been brainwashed by the ilk of Pelosi!
Would it be torture to just shoot ‘em as they are caught?
Is this one of the British troops who were captured by Iranian gunboats?
And I heard in an unclassified briefing from an FBI agent that we do not torture as we seek evidence that will actually hold up in court. Quite frankly, I’m going to trust the FBI.
“this guy makes love to sheep”
I read it on the interweb. It must be true.
This should give a little chuckle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHTjbdZqi84
We have the right to do that under the Geneva Convention. Maybe we try that for a while and see how the islamofascists like their options.
CIDKauf: We have the right to do that under the Geneva Convention.
Don't the Geneva Conventions require a competent military tribunal to first determine if the subject qualifies as an "unlawful combatant"?
and i have never seen this wanker commit sodomy... but i have no doubt in my mind that he has!!!
