UK-US Torture Collaboration Revealed

Newly released Guantanamo files show that former UK government of Tony Blair knew British detainees were being tortured, yet it joined the US extraordinary rendition program.

The documents revealed that the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the British foreign intelligence agency MI6 rendered most of the British nationals in custody at the prison camp on Cuba, despite the knowlege of UK ministers and senior officials that abuses were being committed at the camp.

Meanwhile, the leaked documents show that the US intelligence apparatus knowingly kept innocent men locked up in Guantanamo Bay based on "fabricated stories" in what campaigners called a "travesty of justice".
