Actionable Intelligence?

Craig Murray, a former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, tells how the CIA sent innocent people to that country, out of public sight, and tortured them until they confessed to being terrorists.
"I'm talking of people being raped with broken bottles," he said at a lecture late last month that was re-broadcast by the Real News Network. "I'm talking of people having their children tortured in front of them until they sign a confession. I'm talking of people being boiled alive. And the intelligence from these torture sessions was being received by the CIA, and was being passed on."
Why did they do this? Because the US wanted to build a natural gas pipeline from Uzbekistan through Afghanistan, and we needed to justify our presence there. And the easiest way to do that is to scare the shit out of American citizens by boiling people alive until they made up some story about Al Qaeda and Bin Laden.

America. That shining beacon on the hill.

And when Murray went public? He was dismissed from his job by the British government.
