BBC's new torture charge against America

By

Our friend Peter Glover of Wires from the Bunker, the U.K. blog, alerts us to the latest outrage from the taxpayer—supported BBC:

...the BBC Today programme newscast announced boldly to one and all that the USA was "flying terror suspects around Europe to torture them".

The 'evidence' for 'torture' comes in the form of a long awaited report by Swiss MP Dick Marty. He speaks of "a spider's web of US rendition flgihts" and of "secret camps". The BBC duly put on its hobnailed boots and walked all over the report jumping right across it to use the 'T' word. Oh not to call a terrorist a 'terrorist'. That would be against its ethics and paint 'insurgents' in a bad light. No this was the 'torture' word — and as it was used in respect of the United States people and government all ethical policy 'bets' are off.

 And their actual evidence for torture...well let's not go there. . as facts rarely trouble the consicence of BBC producers especially when it comes to their bete noir: America.

I receive reports of murders, tortures, mutilations, rapes and crimes specifically against Christians every single day from around the world — yet barely a single one of these murders, tortures, rapes et al warrants a mention in BBC world. Is it an wonder that an increasing number of people are so concerned at the depths currently being plumbed by a once fine public broadcaster?

Our James Lewis might take exception to the "once fine" description. But of course, unlike Peter, he does not have to cough up two or three hundred dollars a year and hand it over to the BBC propaganda factory.
