Oh My America!
This story from the BBC brings two thoughts to mind:- firstly, that it will take many years to erase the stain of Guantanamo, rendition and torture from America's reputation, and secondly that if there is a difference of opinion between the two judges in the case and the Government, then I am strongly disposed to believe the judges. I have met Lord Justice Thomas, and I have heard him speak on a number of occasions. He has a formidable intellect and cast-iron integrity.
This is the Foreign Secretary's response.
