Marr Show: Alex Salmond on British illegal kidnap+torture, Gitmo (13 December 2015)
By Luke James in Britain:
Aamer suffered ‘to save Blair‘
Monday 14th December 2015
Speaking about his almost 14-year ordeal at the notorious US prison for the first time since being released in October, Mr Aamer alleged at the weekend that Mr Blair and former home secretary Jack Straw were aware that he was being tortured.
“They have to be asked a straight question: How could they possibly not have known about the fate that had befallen a British citizen?
“The prime responsibility of all governments is to keep their own citizens safe from harm.
“Governments are not meant to collaborate on the illegal abduction and then the torture of one of their own citizens.”
The British resident was twice cleared for release from the gulag by a panel of US intelligence officers, most recently in 2009.
Yet he spent another six years in the camp, being placed in solitary confinement, suffering sleep deprivation and interrogations.
Mr Salmond pointed out that the spooks flew into the base on the same flight as Mr Blair, who was visiting British troops.
“One of the suspicions that people who have been campaigning for his release have had is that there had to be a reason for him not being released despite being cleared for release twice over that period.
“It’s obviously centred on the revelations he would have on what’s been going on at Guantanamo Bay.
“It now appears a reason might have been on what had gone on in January 2002 at Bagram air base.”
Mr Aamer demonstrated how he was “hog-tied” for almost an hour by US troops at the air base as part of the Mail on Sunday interview.
“It kills you, man. You cry, the pain is so bad,” he said.
“They were kicking me at the same time. I thought I was going to lose my legs.”
A spokeswoman for Mr Blair insisted he had “never condoned” the use of torture.
Mr Straw also refuted Mr Salmond’s allegations, ludicrously claiming: “I spent a large part of my time as foreign secretary making strong representations to the US government to get British detainees out of Guantanamo Bay and the US government’s ill-treatment and torture of detainees remains a terrible stain on its record.”
The Save Shaker Aamer Campaign called for their claims to be tested by a public inquiry.
Chair Joy Hurcombe told the Star: “I think they were party to it and therefor they should be made accountable for their involvement.”
Ms Hurcombe, who is one of the few people to have met Mr Aamer since his return, also called for him to be granted British citizenship immediately.
Forty-eight-year-old Mr Aamer also opened up this weekend about his new challenge of resuming normal family life.
He said: “I’m finally living. I’m here with my kids, trying to learn to be a father.”
