MI6, CIA, Gaddafi Colluded in Rendition & Torture: Documents
MI6 & CIA Implicated in Rendition to Gaddafi's Libya
Documents recovered in Tripoli state that Britain's MI6 sent terror suspects to Libya for torture under Muammar Gaddafi's regime.
While both Britain and the US publicly denounce torture, both nations have been implicated time and again in so-called "extraordinary rendition", which entails extrajudicial kidnapping, and sending the detainee to a country that is not bound by stringent torture laws.
One of the men who says he was kidnapped and tortured is now one of the leaders of the NTC, i.e. the group that will be running Libya. Defected spymaster and former Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa was a lot more buddy-buddy with MI6 and the CIA than originally disclosed, which explains why he wasn't arrested upon his defection to the UK.
British Prime Minister David Cameron promised a "full investigation", for what that's worth. Keep in mind that Whitehall has denied rendition allegations for years, even as evidence mounted. To expect Downing Street to punish itself is perhaps a bit too optimistic.
