Craig (having read Orangemen of Togo) is a bit of a boyo, but a good egg. There's not enough of (ex-government) people like him, spillin the beans, I'd say.

It'll be interesting to see how the JCHR deals with the his providencial evidence, gathered at the then frontline of HMG.

The JCHR reports are listed here - check how the committee deals with his contribution of Tuesday 28 April 2009, in due course.

Torture affects us all - the effects trickle down... - the UK guberment utilising and creating evidence from its practice in pursuance of prosecutions which make up the story of the British 'War on Terror'.
