Clive Stafford-Smith – Torture is rife because our leaders encourage it (requires subscription): Top brass such as Tony Blair and George Bush indignantly condemn abuses, yet it is no coincidence that torture is rife in the rank and file. It would not be happening if it were not encouraged by the attitudes of our political leaders.
Clive is a human rights lawyer, and his Channel 4 documentary Is Torture a Good Idea? tonight at 8pm kicks off “a special season of programmes examining the use of and justification for torture in the war against terror.”
I urge you to check and circle the relevant TV listings. Oh, and now seems as good a time as any to share this with someone you love.
