Barack bullies the Brits
In February, Obama’s DOJ demanded dismissal of Mohamed’s lawsuit against the company which helped “render” him to be tortured on the ground that national security would be harmed if the lawsuit continued. Then, after a British High Court ruled that there was credible evidence that Mohamed was subjected to brutal torture and was entitled to obtain evidence in the possession of the British government which detailed the CIA’s treatment of Mohamed, and after a formal police inquiry began into allegations that British agents collaborated in his torture, the British government cited threats from the U.S. government that it would no longer engage in intelligence-sharing with Britain – i.e., it would no longer pass on information about terrorist threats aimed at British citizens – if the British court disclosed the facts of Mohamed’s torture.
Nice. Embarrass us, and we’ll stop helping you protect yourselves. Nice. Sure this guys last name isn’t Cheney or something?
