Funny as this old joke is, it's not nearly as funny as the news that the British body charged with investigating the U.K.'s complicity in the CIA's torture of terrorism suspects between 2001 and 2009 was none other than Parliament's hapless Intelligence and Security Committee.The U.K.'s involvement goes beyond providing a stopover for CIA torture flights. The U.K.'s legal authority, the Crown Prosecution Service, told me that on Dec. 16, London's Metropolitan Police had handed over a file of evidence, the result of a three-year investigation titled Operation Lydd, into MI6 involvement in the kidnapping of Libyan activists in 2004 .This came after he claimed he was tortured with the complicity of British intelligence agencies while illegally held in Pakistan, Morocco, and Afghanistan.We also know that U.K. intelligence agencies supplied information to the CIA's torturers and were present at some of the torture sites. Now the government has added the report on CIA torture to the ISC's workload.
