The 25 lines edited out of the court papers contained details of how Mr Mohamed’s genitals were sliced with a scalpel and other torture methods so extreme that waterboarding, the controversial technique of simulated drowning, “is very far down the list of things they did,” the official said.
Another source familiar with the case said: “British intelligence officers knew about the torture and didn’t do anything about it.”
“All terror charges against him were dropped last year,” the Telegraph reported.

Even on those who are not proven to be terrorists? Wow. Fair enough.

I find this very interesting. To say do what it takes, but then to condemn others for their actions. Seems to me all of those who agree with this behavior would have been fine with the tortures used in the Holocaust if they were able to be convinced Jews were the enemy. I wonder if they teach their children to not only push back a child that pushes them, but take it a step further. Anything to keep our families safe, right?

"Mr Mohamed, 30, an Ethiopian, was granted refugee status in Britain in 1994. He was picked up in Pakistan in 2002 on suspicion of involvement in terrorism, rendered to Morocco and Afghanistan, tortured and then sent to Guantanamo Bay in 2004. All terror charges against him were dropped last year."
Charges were dropped. Wouldn't be surprised if the US just created a New Terrorist. Way to GO USA! We should hang our head in shame.
