Classified documents reveal UK's role in torture of its own citizens 14 Jul 2010  The true extent of the Labour government's involvement in the illegal abduction and torture of its own citizens after the 'al-Qaida' attacks of September 2001 has been spelled out in stark detail with the disclosure during high court proceedings of a mass of highly classified documents.
