Jack Straw – The Guilty Man Lies 292


My RT interview today giving eyewitness evidence that Jack Straw is lying about his personal complicity in torture. Straw has been allowed to lie repeatedly about his on UK media for the past 24 hours, as have other British establishment figures. Despite the fact that it is infamous that I was sacked by Straw for blowing the whistle on CIA torture, and the undeniable documentary evidence of this, not one UK media outlet has allowed me to contradict Straw. I have contacted every major British news outlet and been blanked by every one.

    So Jack Straw texted John Snow on air to say he and the UK Govt knew zilch about the torture eh?

    May i remind you all this is the same Jack Straw who claimed to Parliament in 2007 that those who claimed the UK were heavily involved in Extraordinary Rendition were “conspiracy theorists.”

    I wouldn’t trust Jack Straw at all.

    Watching the press today expressing shock at these revelations is like watching that bloke in the Molière play suddenly discovering he’s been speaking prose all his life.

    It is interesting to reflect that more than four hundred years ago, if the people were upset, Londoners would mob members of the government and threaten the security of the regime. On one occasion, the old bastard Judge Jeffries was so scared by the mob he sought refuge in the Tower of London. The result was a sort of democracy in accordance with which Elizabeth and other monarchs trimmed their policies to maintain the goodwill of the public.

    Today folks just moan about BBC lies, while the liars smear them as “conspiracy theorists.” Meantime the government not only engages in torture, as it always has, but plots genocide against its own people, as when Blair and Straw set out to change the demographic structure of the Britain through mass immigration, with the aim, among others, of rubbing the noses of their opponents in the resulting multi-culti disaster that has made Britain, among other things, a major recruiting ground for ISIL fighters.

    I truly doubt whether the Scots would find better government by escaping the UK and entering the EU superstate. Rather Scots and all people of the West need to ponder the question of how they might regain the leverage over government that our long ago ancestors possessed.

    Impeccable balance.

    “not one UK media outlet has allowed me to contradict Straw. I have contacted every major British news outlet and been blanked by every one.”

    Wiggy explains:

    AR: “Um, I’m sure there is a… (6 second pause) that the pressures of ownership on newspapers is, is pretty important, and it works in all kinds of subtle ways – I suppose ‘filter’ is as good a word as any; the whole thing works by a kind of osmosis. If you ask anybody who works in newspapers, they will quite rightly say, ‘Rupert Murdoch’, or whoever, ‘never tells me what to write’, which is beside the point: they don’t have to be told what to write.”

    DE: “That’s right, it’s just understood.”

    AR: “It’s understood. I think that does work, and obviously the general interests of most of the people who own newspapers are going to be fairly conventional, pro-business, interests. So, you know, I’m sure that is broadly true, yes.”

    O/Y Today the son of a not very popular PCC for Norfolk, after a whole year of procrastinations, was finally charged with death by dangerously driving a Fendt tractor and killing Rebecca Brown. It took over a year to bring him to court, the little darling.

    He has not entered a plea and imho he displays the same attitude than his father, denial until the very last minute. I wonder what will come of the charge and whether he’ll get off on some technical discrepancy.

    Of course people who believe the UK was involved in extraordinary rendition are conspiracy theorists. It’s just that there’s no reason for believe conspiracy theorists have to be wrong. And in this case we know they are right.

    The use of the phrase “conspiracy theorist” as a pejorative derives from a CIA campaign to discredit disbelievers in the Warren Commission fairy tale in the late 1960’s. And, whatever you think really happened in the JFK assassination, one account of events can immediately be dismissed as impossible: the Warren Commission’s line. So that’s another case where some conspiracy theory has to be right.

    AR: “Um, well, no press in the world is completely free by that definition. But, I mean I think the British press is comparatively free, though it works within a fairly constrained consensus.”

    I imagine this horse in a huge open expanse, going down a narrow fenced lane, with no bends, with blinkers on. And wheels that only go straight tied to it’s feet, just in case. I’m not sure it’s even a real horse.

    “British MPs demand inquiry into UK’s role in CIA abductions

    Involvement of Britain and US’s other allies in CIA renditions were redacted from Senate intelligence committee report”

    ““David Cameron promised a judge-led inquiry into our intelligence services, but he has since u-turned. Now the government says it will ask parliament’s intelligence and security committee to examine this scandal – the very same committee which completely failed to notice UK involvement in rendition when it was going on, and for years after.””

    “Scotland’s lord advocate, Frank Mulholland QC, has instructed Police Scotland to consider the US Senate report on CIA interrogation as part of the ongoing police investigation into rendition flights.”

    Keep up the great work Craig – the fact that people are out to block you becoming a candidate says a lot – running scared of the truth.

    All the best to you; there is a tremendous well of support for people with your values, who are brave enough to stand up to the disgraceful behaviour being brought to the fore now

    Looking forward to seeing you elected as a Member of Parliament in May

    You probably heard this morning’s BBC Radio 4 Today programme interview with two headmasters on the subject of the latest Ofsted report.

    I have just finished reading Oliver Stone’s book, “The Untold History of the United States”.

    Seemingly the CIA has never done anything since its inception after WWII except undermine stable and democratic governments all over the world ‘covertly’ and replace them with murderous dictatorships.

    Maybe you guys all knew that, but I hadn’t realised the picture was quite so black.

    Craig,

    You are a good man, (and a good drinking companion abroad) with good intent but these are very dangorous waters you are swiming in at the moment. Voicing your thoughts and being fired for it is one thing, hitting the headlines by showing up powerful politicians as liars and highlighting CIA and british secret service involvement is another level.

    Please be careful, aiming to be a MP with your background will not be welcome and I would worry about your safety.

  • Habbabkuk (la vita è bella)

    Anyway, back on the subject of this thread (apologies to the Eminences!), I see from Herbie’s post that questions as to the UK’s involvement are being to gain traction in the UK.

    This evening, mainstream Continental TV and radio have been taking quite an interest in the involvement of quite a number of Continental countries in rendition practices and I believe the clamour will increase rather than diminish over the coming days. One TV station featured a piece on the possibility of former detainees being able to sue the “host” govts concerned on the basis of what is in the Senate Report.

    So, as I said earlier today, I would not rule out that UK media outlets might start picking up Craig’s story and running with it.

    “Please be careful, aiming to be a MP with your background will not be welcome and I would worry about your safety.”

    mmm, but I also feel being tentative can get you in trouble. If I was Craig I may welcome it, and if concerned? a good reason to welcome and support him.

    “hitting the headlines by showing up powerful politicians as liars and highlighting CIA and British secret service involvement is another level.”

    I’m also not sure that’s Craigs doing. They have shown themselves up. They may just as well go after the papers, who do actually choose to….O hang on?…..Tut tut, naughty The Scotsman, you let Craig ‘hit you’.

    It’s not like we don’t have the truth now from a myriad of sources, it’s the denials that show these people up.

  • Macky

    The BBC’s second headline story is the reporting of a Brazilian Truth Commission into historic human rights abuses committed under recent periods of military rule; if this was meant as a distraction from possible British involvement in the CIA abuses, it contains this ironic revelation;

    “Under the protection of immunity, Malhaes, who has since died, also gave specific details about training on torture techniques he and others had received in the United Kingdom”

    Island’s a small democracy where a mere handful of corrupt bankers almost destroyed the economy, sound familiar? Only in Iceland the people demonstrated in huge numbers outside their quaint little parliament, that is about half the population turned up to protest and demand change and that they weren’t going to pay for the damage done by the bankers.

    This was Athenian democracy, sort of, working. The people out on the streets voicing their opinions and scaring the pants off the ruling elite. But one couldn’t get half the UK’s population into Westminster so real, direct democracy is virtually impossible, unless one set up people’s parliaments all over the place and outside the traditional Westminster model, create a new parallel parliament to challenge Westminster.

    I offered to hire a large hall in central London in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq so that MPs could come and have a free, open, unrestricted debate about the coming war and talk for a week if they wanted to and even call experts to come and give them unbiased information and advice. To my consternation not a single MP I contacted was interested. Of course now I understand the rules better. I should have offered to bribe them, had strippers, prostitutes and plenty of fee drink and drugs served. Oh to be an oligarch, unfortunately my resources only stretched as far as the hall.

    Shame that you have to go on RT to be heard…… (apply for Rusbridger’s job). Your voice should be heard without having to go on overseas propaganda stations.
