Hillary Clinton Threatens U.K. over Revealing Torture Details
During a recent visit to the United Kingdom, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton reportedly told London officials that the United States government would cease sharing intelligence information with its longtime ally if a British court released CIA evidence revealing the torture of a former detainee. The case in question involved Binyam Mohamed, an Ethiopian granted refugee status in Britain, who was detained in Pakistan in 2002 on suspicion of being a terrorist. Mohamed was “rendered” to Morocco and Afghanistan, before winding up at Guantánamo Bay, from which he was released earlier this year and shipped back to the UK.
