It is worth posting this before it is forgotten. The Ministry of Defense obtained a High Court injunction against former SAS trooper Ben Griffin
last week. This follows a number of public statements by Griffin indicating that the British government is extensively involved in the torture department of the 'war on terror'. It seems obvious that the reason they are doing this is because a) his claims are accurate and b) he has substantial material to back it up, which is not now at liberty to divulge because of the injunction. This will be something to remember the next time someone blithers about the 'armed wing of Amnesty International'.
