The Truth Vanishes 40

Since the judgement in the Binyam Mohammed case, there has been a resurgence in the awareness of our government’s policy of collusion in torture. Kim Howells and David Miliband have been telling outright lies in denying it, while Bruce Anderson is leading the “Torture the Muslim bastards” wing.

With the government issuing blatantly lying denials, I decided to contact the Guardian to ask why they never published my indisputable documentary proof of a policy of using torture, sanctioned by Jack Straw.

Thankfully the excellent David Leigh is back from sabbatical, Idly browsing while waiting for him to phone me back, I came across this from MerkinonParis:

A simple Graun story with a simple standfirst ‘The advice of worldly, well-educated Foreign Office diplomats is simply being ignored’

    Same old puppet show. One comes, others appear in response, they argue. The crocodile snaps at everyone, but they all get back up afterwards.

  • Larry from St. Louis

    Roderick, could you provide me with the two best pieces of evidence that British intelligence is engaged in a campaign of Zerzetzen against you?

  • roderick russell

    Larry, You hardly ever comment on any of Craig’s blogs without finding some opportunity to smear and slander me. You don’t argue with me, you don’t debate with me, you just insult and smear. It is a professional job, and you and I both know it.

    As for your comment accusing me of posting the very nasty suicide URL/Comment that somebody posted – It was even nasty by your standards. You may not have posted it, you may not even know who has posted it, but I don’t have the slightest doubt that you are an active part of the team that is involved.

    As for you ongoing comment – What two pieces of evidence do you rely on. Read the WIKI. There are hundreds of pieces of evidence I rely on, as you know perfectly well. Don’t hide behind anonymity, lets have your contact details, lets know who you really represent.

    Craig, I am sorry for responding. But this guy slanders me a dozen times for every time I respond to him. He is most certainly a professional in the smear business.

  • Larry from St. Louis

    Roderick, I’ve read your wiki, and I understand that you think you have massive amounts of evidence.

    I’m just asking you to give me your two best pieces of evidence.

    Why are you afraid to do so?

    Actually, Craig, do you think you could not delete this comment, please? It strikes me as pretty innocuous and is no more ‘thread-derailing’ than any of the other challenges to Larry. I genuinely would like to ask him this question:

    Larry, if you really think all the posters on this site are ‘loons’ why do you come here every day?

  • Jon

    @Roderick, I would be inclined to advise you not to rise to the bait 🙂

    @Larry, between you and another poster, whose name escapes me, you appear only be interested in painting posters here as anti-semites, conspiracy theorists or nutters. You are welcome to regard anyone as such, but not welcome to be disruptive, which I think is your aim generally. I am not at all inclined to believe that your questions to Roderick are intended to help him.

    Even Craig has marked you both out as agents provocateurs, and I think he demonstrates a lot of patience by not deleting your comments on sight.

  • Jives

    Why does Larry come here,some ask?

    He’s been ordered to of course!

    Best to just ignore these trolls.

    “On Sunday, in an exclusive interview with Jonathan Karl of ABC News’ “This Week,” Cheney proclaimed his love of torture, derided the Obama administration for outlawing the practice, and admitted that the Bush administration ordered Justice Department attorneys to fix the law around his policies.”

    It’s odd, perhaps I’m getting mixed-up, but I’m sure I posted a comment (and chcked it had gone up) on this sometime on 15th Feb responding to one which mary had posted some time earlier. Now it seems that both comments are gone. How odd. But perhaps it was on a different thread… don’t think so, though. Some weird high-tech thing, no doubt.

  • Abe Rene

    Amazing. So The Guardian actually censored fair comment by yourself. That means they have become a pawn of New Labour. Shocking! Glad I prefer The Times myself.
