#1 that could lead to abuse of detainees

There is that word again. Usually this means nothing has actually happened but the usual human rights orgs are preemptively bunching their panties.

#3 But, Tom, that's much more likely than the former.

#4 I read part of the brief the Times claims it got from a FO source. It basically means that MI (UK) share any details they may have of criminal antecedents of individuals currently in the custody of other States (states that are a-OK with sawing off a thumb or two to save innocent lives), especially of activities related to jihad and extremism. Like expanding the criminal records database across the sea. Because many high ranking, english speaking extremists are actually radicalized in Europe, British Int. is expected to naturally be aware of them.

This is part of the Conflict Prevention Doctrine of the UK's National Security Council. It also approves aid and funding for security agencies of erstwhile commonwealth countries and allies facing extremist threats and those seeking easy flow of information or offering information about criminals targeting british or allied interests.

And the so called policy for torture is one that simply leaves the... wetwork to people that are ok with it, leaving pudgy british fingers clean and smelling only of fish.

What's bad about it ? Only someone with criminal interests would object to it.
